I have posted previously about the reasons the abortion industry is pushing chemical abortions. Now a recent study has revealed that chemical abortions fail up to twenty three percent of the time. As the linked article indicates, the very attempts by the abortion industry to implement chemical abortions increase the likelihood that the drugs will fail:
But, for Dr. Randy O’Bannon, the director of research and
education for National Right to Life, there failure rates
and need for surgical abortions present bigger problems for
"Those who have developed and promoted RU 486 have
told women that the abortifacient offers them a way to have
an abortion without the risk of surgery," he told
"Yet, the abortion industry’s efforts to tamper with
the FDA protocol, changing doses, lengthening the
gestational limits, shortening the time between the
administration of [the two drugs] have decreased the ‘effectiveness’
of the drugs and put many of these women in line for surgical
abortions after their chemical abortions failed," he said.
"Attempts to make the process more convenient for
women, for the clinics, may help the industry attract more
customers, but as this latest study shows, it exposes women
to additional risks," O’Bannon continued.
"As long as the abortion industry puts its own
profits and preferences ahead of patient safety, both
mothers and their unborn children will continue to face
danger behind clinic doors," he said.
