The Clinton Abortion Legacy

from Martin Fox, President
National Pro-Life Alliance

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.

The second pill, misoprostol, is taken two days later, leaving the woman to deliver her aborted baby in her own home.
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.

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.
