New Stanek WND column, "Live tweeting abortion"

WND%20logo.gif

Be careful what you attempt to demystify.

At 4:08 p.m. on Feb. 18 micro-blogger Angie Jackson began posting the blow-by-blows of her RU-486 abortion on Twitter. "I took the first pill a little under 2 hours ago," she tweeted....

The 27-year-old's intention, she later told ABC News, was to "demystify" RU-486 abortions....

RU-486 abortions are the coming rage, much less hassle for abortion profiteers than surgical abortions. The mother takes an RU-486 pill at the clinic, which kills the baby, and follows up at home with 1 or 2 doses of misoprostol pills to cause contractions to expel the baby. All for $480, as Angie tweeted.

The bonus for abortion clinics is if an RU-486 abortion doesn't work, which occurs 7.9% of the time according to RU-486's label, there is no guarantee, so mothers must then undergo and pay for surgical abortions - abortion double-dipping.

Notwithstanding that, along with serious, life-threatening complications that can lead to death, as has happened at least 8 times in the U.S. since RU-486 was legalized in 2000, are RU-486 abortions generally less hassle for aborting moms?

Jackson thought so, basing her decision on the fact her abortion would... be a "4 hour bleed-out," as she tweeted beforehand....

But the first rule of demystifying is one must herself be demystified before attempting to demystify. If not, the demystifying process may not go as anticipated, which is what happened in Jackson's case.

Only because Angie decided to live tweet her RU-486 abortion did we learn in actuality it's a long, drawn out, painful process. For that reason I thought Angie's exposé was a worthwhile educational experience for us all....

For 9 days, from Feb. 19-27, Jackson tweeted about such severe cramps she had difficulty walking across the room. She went through 17 Vicodin in 6 days and at a point soon after requesting a prescription for another 20.

Jackson tweeted nausea, vomiting, backaches, headaches and bleeding. 5 days into her abortion experience, Angie commented on another blog, "Honestly I had no idea this would go on so long. I thought the entire abortion would take a few hours, as I'd read in a few stories...."

At the bottom of this column you can read what Jackson's suffering looked like in real time, where I've synopsized the pain of her tweets....

How utterly, completely, sinfully disgusting in every way. Time to call this what it is: premeditated, Satanic, child sacrifice.

I had forgotten, one of my friends was a retail manager and her one employee got pregnant and had an RU486 abortion. And she talked about it the same as Angie as if it was no big deal. All the employees were disgusted by her attitude (even the pro-choice employees!) This was several years ago, but I remember within a month the girl was expressing the desire to get pregnant again and within three months of the abortion WAS pregnant again...I guess once she lost her baby she realized how much she really HAD wanted that child. But I'm sure she came to realize the second baby could not replace the first child...each child is precious and unique.

Oh, Jill. You know this whole thing is somehow your fault. :P

I read an article in some woman's magazine a couple years ago written by a woman who decided to abort by RU 486. She got violently ill and had major complications and thought she was going to die. Although she remained pro-choice, her article was meant o blast the clinic who had given her the pills and for not informing her of the risks and negatives of the process. The clinic told her it would be just a simple prcedure. Angie, although had her son to care for, didn't have to get up and go to a 9-5 job everyday. She could take her handfuls of vicodin and smoke in her backyard when the going go tough.
The abortion providers continue to lie lie and lie again.

The ignorance of Angie's need to tweet this self inflicted abortion is amazing. Sadly she has no idea of how this will torment her the rest of her life. Right now she is in denial, and full of justifications She'll eventually "get it" This whole "tweet" disgusts me, I am a great believer is KARMA. She will soon, if not later see the ramifications of her actions, first being, the relationship with BF will probably fizzle, if not now, divorce later and so the list of post abortion stresses...

IF you believe this from an abortion clinic...

Ok...Now, where are our resident pro-aborts defending this "CHOICE ???

And you femi-nazis wish THIS on your fellow sisters, daughters, wives ???

By the way, no need to answer..just a rhetorical question, we already know the answer.

This finally seems over. I still find myself thinking about Angela Jackson but not because of her abortion. It's her general outlook on life I find depressing.
I was never an atheist, but I did spend a lot of years away from church because of experiences with an unfortunate handful of judgemental fundamentalists. I personally know it takes Divine intervention for someone like Angela to come back around, but when they do they have the most powerful testimonies of all.

Yeah, she only bled so long and needed so many drugs because of the stigma forced on her by Jill.

Posted by: Christina at March 5, 2010 4:48 PM


Oh, about the bleeding, when Suzanne Poppema did RU-486 trials in the US, she said it was freaking her staff out to have the women coming in for checkups and standing at the check-in window with the blood pooling around their feet.

Notice that Sandy doesn't provide a link to the "clinic told her" comment.

But then we have

Notice that RSC believes the unsourced anti-choice propaganda. What's that old PT Barnum quote about suckers?

"Ok...Now, where are our resident pro-aborts defending this "CHOICE ???"

First, prove your allegation about what was said in the clinic. Second, I will continue to defend a woman's choice until you change the law* (in which case I will be driving the underground railroad to Canada just like the "good old days.") There's lots more like me out there, LOL!!!!!

*Not likely in my liberal, New England, "Catholic," state founded on tolerance and which still stand proudly as pro-choice despite the Catholic bishop. But if the bible belt states want to criminalize abortion, we will welcome those women, seeking to abort, with open arms and open clinics. And unless you plan on stopping the women at the border, there's nothing you can do about it. LOL

"Second, I will continue to defend a woman's choice until you change the law* (in which case I will be driving the underground railroad to Canada just like the "good old days.")"


You will continue obviously to defend the choice to murder the unborn apparently on grounds it is legal.

So I guess if tomorrow the choice of men to rape becomes legal, you will defend that choice, too?

After all, even the most heinous acts come from CHOICES.

Just because people make choices do NOT mean we hace to approve of those choices and have to be for them being legal and look the other way when they are done, if those choices infringe on the rights of others to live and on their liberty.

Keep forgetting my name here is Punisher, not Daredevil.

But anyways, do tell, Artemis, what New England, "Catholic," state founded on tolerance is that?

Yesterday, I had a long conversation with a knowledgeable pro-life apologist regarding my future in sidewalk counseling. We touch on our mutual dismay that there is a trend toward more medicinal abortions and fewer surgical abortions, mostly because the best weapon we have (ultrasounds) would be less effective earlier, as medicinal abortions are.

Then I made a confession to him about a horribly mercenary (hope?) of mine:

RU-486 will help us will this war. Sounds ridiculous, huh? But think of how it differs from the surgical - its going to take longer to complete, she will be forced to think about it the whole time, and, God forbid the thought, she WILL give birth to a tiny dead baby.

And she'll see the tiny dead baby. Probably in a toilet. She'll see the development; she'll be forced to acknowledge what she sees. And what she's done.

It won't be waking up in recovery, being "un-pregnant" with some short term discomfort, and waiting (potential years, if ever) to realize what she has done, and taking 15 years to deal with the emotions.

It will be immediate, in-her-face emotionally, and potentially brutal on her psyche. PAS (PTSD for you deniers) incidences will immediately go through the roof. Which is horrible.

Why would I think this is good? Because many of them will develop very strong negative feelings faster than ever before, and many of the delusions and lies will no longer hold water.

To draw a comparison: Its one thing to see the trains taking the Jews "away"; its quite another to get a tour of the concentration camp.

The atrocity is that it will still take the death of millions to bring about a big enough change in public opinion. And we'll end up realizing we're Nazis.

What do YOU think the effect will be?

Posted by: JP Prichard at March 5, 2010 8:15 PM


JP,

Some great points you made.

I think though knowledge is half of it. The other half is growing a heart.

Problem is I am sure many of those abortionist groups know full well what is being destroyed are real human beings. They just have hard hearts that it does not matter what the knowledge is. Hence their rage whenever pics of dead unborns are shown as products of abortion.

So probably many ladies will grow hearts and turn against abortion. But I suspect many will harden their hearts further.

Interesting. I hadn't noticed really that she was taking non-prescription drugs along *with* her tylenol 3. So she had to have been overdosing on painkillers...

Her body must not be liking her much right now. :-/

Rhode Island - founded by Roger Williams who believed in individual freedom of worship. It's also home to the oldest Jewish synagogue in the country - the Newport Truro sysnagogue to whom President Washington wrote a letter about freedom of religion. Unlike other colonies, we weren't big into "punishment."

Funny I should be reading this today (and sad!). Last night I got on Elisabeth Elliot's website and into her newsletter archives. In 1983 she wrote about an execution and how the public wants to know every last detail of what happens. But it seems with abortion it is the other way around. There is no public clamoring for details. After reading this post, remembering my miscarriages, and wondering about the "end" for the tweeter, I am very sad for this lady. I would guess post abortive women need a lot of tenderness, love, and forgiveness.

Why i it nothing shocks me any longer? Pretty sad!

From a practical standpoint, any woman who could not hang out at home for two weeks with bad cramps and loopy on meds, would look at this RU-486 option as a no go.

Lots of boyfriends who drop off their girlfriends at the clinic on Friday or Saturday, sure as heck wouldn't want to spend a week or more with them on this kind of crap. They would prefer them back at work on Monday.

A crass, but realistic look, I know.

Roger Williams was not Catholic, but Puritan Baptist, meaning he held to Baptist views of memorial of Lord's supper, believer's baptism, and church and state operating in seperate spheres. What he did not believe in however was that natural law and its morality should be kept out of the law of the land he was in. He held to indeed natural law as the moral aspect of the Mosaic law (as opposed to the ceremonial and other parts of the law done away with by the cross).

Jill,

Thank you for posting this and being such a devoted pro-life advocate. I actually felt ill at times reading Angie Jackson's twitter documenting her abortion. Her attitude comes across as though she's having a decayed tooth extracted rather than a human life. What a tragedy. I pray her and others' hearts will be converted to one day see the reality of the evil of abortion.
