Abortion pill “spa” aims to erase stigma with bathrobes and tea

by Kelli At Carafem, staff members plan to greet clients with warm teas, comfortable robes and a matter-of-fact attitude. “We don’t want to talk in hushed tones,” said Carafem president Christopher Purdy. “We use the A-word.”… Because Carafem will offer only the abortion pill, not vacuum aspiration or other surgical procedures, prospective clients must be […]

Pro-aborts: Abortion pill reversal makes women “unwilling guinea pigs”

by Carder There is no science to support this. ACOG [American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists] does not support advising women on treatments that are not evidence-based. These women would be unknowing and unwilling guinea pigs. ~ Gynecologist Ilana Addis concerned about the recent pro-life bill passed in Arizona “that would require doctors who perform […]

Pro-abort docs fret over “standards of care” in RU-486 reversals

Father Pavone poses with young family following news conference in Washington on RU-486 reversal protocolby Kelli

The “reversals” also show that the ingestion of medication abortion drugs is never a sure thing when it comes to terminating a pregnancy. While anti-abortion activists tout the alleged “high complication rates” of the process, what they conveniently leave out is that the most common complication is that the patient remains pregnant, and that the protocol needs to be followed up with D&C or vacuum aspiration abortion in order to end the pregnancy….

NYT writer: 2nd trimester chemical abortions “not happening”

by Kelli One of the tricky parts about medical abortion is that these drugs work all the way through a pregnancy, although they become less effective and the rate of complication rises in the course of pregnancy. So it is not recommended to have a second-trimester medical abortion without the supervision of a doctor. It’s […]

Planned Parenthood captures abortion monopoly in Texas

Planned Parenthood abortion monopoly in TexasUPDATE 7/24, 5:20a: We got great news yesterday, that the abortion rate in Texas has dropped by 13% since November, when the new pro-life law began taking effect. This represents 9,200 babies saved from abortion!

7/23, 7:32a: On September 1 a new pro-life law will take effect in Texas that requires abortion clinics to meet the same standards as ambulatory surgical centers, abortionists to have admitting privileges at hospitals within 30 miles of the clinic, and the abortion pill RU-486 to be dispensed per FDA protocol.

And on that day Planned Parenthood will seize control of the Texas abortion market, since it will at that point own six* of the eight remaining abortion clinics.

  • Americans United for Life praises yesterday’s Supreme Court decision, with CEO Charmaine Yoest remarking that it was “a victory for common-sense as pro-life Americans do not lose their First Amendment freedoms when they open a family business or when they value unborn life”. But the battle is far from over, as “[a]bortion is woven into the healthcare law at multiple levels, making repeal of the law a pro-life necessity.”

It creates a protective zone within 160 feet of health care facilities to allow patients and others to enter and exit without obstruction.Under the ordinance, people on public way or sidewalks within that 160-foot radius may not approach, without consent, another person within 8 feet for the purpose of oral protest, education, counseling, passing leaflets or handbills, or displaying signs. Violations of the ordinance are punishable by fines ranging from $300 to $750.

  • Texas Senator Wendy Davis seems to think Kermit Gosnell and Douglas Karpen are the same abortionist. When asked by the Weekly Standard about Gosnell, she gave this response:

    I don’t know what happened in the Gosnell case. But I do know that it happened in an ambulatory surgical center. And in Texas changing our clinics to that standard obviously isn’t going to make a difference.

    Only Gosnell’s clinic was obviously not an ambulatory surgical center. But you know whose is? Texas abortionist Douglas Karpen – the same abortionist who was exposed for killing infants who survive abortion (just like Kermit Gosnell) and has been called the Texas Gosnell. Either Davis got the two confused or she isn’t aware they’re different people.
