The abortion pill is a two-step process that often results in pain, nausea, severe cramping and bleeding, and in many cases, a trip to the emergency room.
The first pill kills the baby, and the second ejects the baby from the mother’s womb.
The FDA originally instituted regulations to protect the mother from life-threatening situations. These include sonograms to rule out the potential of an ectopic pregnancy; a verification of the age of the baby; and a test to prevent fatal infection. These protocols require women to take the pill in a clinic, under the oversight of a medical professional.
These protocols, however, were suspended in 2021, encouraging women to take this pills at their homes, making an already dangerous process even more deadly.
In 2022, Delaware legislators passed a bill to further expnad access to DIY abortions by allowing APRNS and physician assistants to prescribe the pill. In 2023, the FDA allowed retail pharmaceutical companies to dispense the pills.
Chemical abortions are yet another ghastly reminder that an industry built on the murder of the preborn will have zero regard for the life of others as well – including the mothers.
