Not all milestones are cause for celebration.
16 years ago, the Clinton Administration rammed through approval of the abortion pill RU-486.
Since then, 23% of all abortions in the U.S. have been chemical abortions by RU-486 at just over 240,000 per year.
Chemically killing babies has been a boon to the abortion industry, because it helps abortion seem like an even easier, less consequential way to end a pregnancy.
Just pop a pill and forget your troubles, the sales pitch goes.
But the fact is, RU-486 is a harsh two-part cocktail of drugs.
The first pill, mifepristone, is taken right away.Taken together these meds have killed more than 2 million babies and been the catalyst for over 1,100 women to be rushed to emergency rooms with deadly complications from at-home abortions.
The second pill, misoprostol, is taken two days later, leaving the woman to deliver her aborted baby in her own home.
But the hard truth is that RU-486 only begins brand-new troubles.
Though taking a pill sounds less menacing than invading the womb with sharp instruments, the end result is the same: a dead baby.
And as you know, it’s never been as safe for women as advertised, either.
Nonetheless, pro-abortion forces on Capitol Hill rushed RU-486 through the testing and approval process in a desire to bring it to market.
So until we are able to ban RU-486 we can only grieve the innocent and defenseless lives that have been taken.
Keep up the fight we must.
The National Pro-Life Alliance occupies a unique and important role in the pro-life movement. The focus of many other pro-life organizations is research, publications or counseling. These are all important and worthy activities, but the National Pro-Life Alliance is singular in its focus on passing pro-life legislation that will protect the unborn from the moment of conception onward.
