RU-486-A Mistake for Women’s Health

The abortion industry and its supporters routinely say that they are engaged in the battle to keep abortion legal in order to safeguard the health of women. In fact, they say, if legal abortion is not available, thousands of women will die each year from “back alley abortions.”

However, the recent controversy over the abortion pill RU-486 clearly shows that abortion advocates are not interested in protecting the health of our sisters and friends. Instead, they are simply interested in protecting abortion—no matter what the cost.

You may not realize it, but eight women around the world have died after taking the abortion drug RU-486. Abortion advocates claimed that RU-486 was a safe, “effective” way to end an unwanted pregnancy. But nothing could be further from the truth. If abortion backers are truly concerned about women’s health, why would they defend a pill that kills women?

While eight fatalities may sound like a low death count, the toll could climb significantly. More than 800 women have experienced potentially life-threatening complications after using RU-486. This is not a miracle drug. This is a lethal drug. It kills a baby and has the potential of killing his or her mother.
