Another state recognizes the dangers of abortion pills.

The Louisiana state legislature has passed a bill that would add mifepristone and misoprostol, the two pills in the chemical abortion regimen, to the state’s list of controlled dangerous substances. The law, which passed the legislature 69-24, would require that pills for chemical abortion be stored in special facilities and doctors to have a special license to prescribe them.  

Abortion activists have responded to the bill by claiming that this will lead to significant harm. However, the opposite is true. Passing this bill will save the lives of countless preborn children and preserve women’s health. 

Activists claim chemical abortion is a safe choice for women, but the FDA’s own label notes that approximately 1 in 25 women who take the drugs have an emergency room visit. Other studies have found that one in five women who take the pill report an adverse event, and that rates of complications are four times higher for chemical abortion than with surgical abortion. 

The truth about chemical abortion is available. And it’s not good.
