When you think about abortion, you might imagine a surgical abortion taking place in a clinical setting.
But there’s another way an abortion can be performed, and tragically it can be done in a living room, bathroom, or college dorm room. It’s called chemical abortion, and it’s a two-drug method where a woman takes pills at home, often by herself, that lead to the death and loss of her baby.
Chemical abortions come with a high risk of complications such as hemorrhage, sepsis, and infection. In fact, they have 4 times the likelihood of complications in comparison with surgical abortion.
Concerningly, the FDA recently decided to allow local pharmacies to carry these pills. But the good news is that pro-life groups are fighting back to protect women and the unborn.
In our live video today, Dr. Christina Francis, a pro-life OB/GYN and CEO-elect of the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists, talks about the risks of chemical abortions and what she’s doing to protect life. Also hear from Erik Baptist, who serves as senior counsel at Alliance Defending Freedom, as he explains a new lawsuit to hold the FDA accountable for failing to protect women.
