Over half of the abortions in the United States are done using the “abortion pill,” a combination of drugs that are used together to induce an unborn baby’s death.
What is deadly for a baby can also be a horrific experience for the mother, who is often not informed that any complications can occur with the abortion.
As Live Action recently shared, a number of women have recounted their horrific experiences while losing their babies to the abortion pill protocol, with some even losing their own lives along with that of their child’s.
One woman shared that after taking the pill, she felt a pain like she’d never experienced and that blood was “gushing” out of her.
“I couldn’t wear a pad… nothing was able to absorb the amount of blood I was losing. The only thing I could do was sit on the toilet… for hours… bleeding, throwing up into the bathroom trashcan, crying and sweating,” she explained.
After she began to pass “lemon sized” blood clots, wondering if the first was her baby, she thought she was “dying.”
“This couldn’t be normal. Planned Parenthood didn’t ever tell me this could happen…. I decided that I would call them in the morning… if I didn’t die before then.”
Kimi Hemingway shared in her book, “Choice,” of her experience in excruciating pain, “screaming on the toilet while tissue, mucus, blood, [excrement], spilled out of me,” before she later collapsed, immobile, “excreting fluids I did not know my body had onto the wood floor.”
While the abortion clinic staff showed no sympathy, even laughing at her, an unaffiliated doctor later treated her for uterine and bladder conditions after she continued to bleed for three months. The doctor told her he’d seen the abortion pill impact women in the same way before.
Sadly, Holly died after taking the abortion pill protocol, so it is her father who shared the story of receiving a call that she was in the intensive care unit, where he found her “too weak to talk, pale complexion, puffy faced, and struggling to breathe.”
“We are doing everything we can for her, but she might not make it,” a doctor told Holly’s distressed father. “These things sometimes happen as a result of the pill.”
Holly died one week after she took the first pill, the same day she was scheduled to return to Planned Parenthood for a follow-up.
As Live Action notes, solid information on the risks of using the abortion pill protocol (also known as RU-486, mifepristone, misoprostol, medical abortion, chemical abortion, or medication abortion), are difficult to obtain.
Nearly two dozen U.S. states do not even report any complications women may experiencing using the abortion pill.
Yet the state of California would like to require universities sell chemical abortion drugs to students on campus.
The proposed legislation “would require — not just allow, but require — public universities to sell abortion pills to pregnant women on campus,” Live Action has reported.
“They [these abortions] are generally committed in the first 10 weeks of pregnancy. The universities would be under no obligation to also tell women about the possibility of abortion reversal if they regret their abortion,” the pro-life organization explained.
