    The May 25 episode of Vida titled “Episode 21” drives home the point of how cavalier and apathetic some pro-abortion women can be when it comes to terminating their unborn children. This episode on Starz even shows the two leading characters, sisters, bonding over the pills used to perform the abortion. Older sister Emma Hernandez (Mishel Prada) decides to end the life of her unborn child. She goes to an abortion clinic and is shown downing the two pills used in the process – Mifepristone and Misoprostol – without using the instructions the nurse gives her. Instead of taking the...
  • Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf Rejects Telemedicine Expansion Bill that Excludes At-Home Abortions

    Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf (D) vetoed a bill Wednesday that would have expanded telemedicine services during the coronavirus outbreak because it excluded access to at-home, drug-induced abortions. Wolf, who has typically rejected pro-life legislation, vetoed Senate Bill 857, a measure that would have expanded virtual medical services for those unable to see their doctors in person, because the bill prohibited access to drugs to induce at-home abortions. In a veto message, the governor said a Pennsylvania House amendment to the legislation that banned telemedicine services that are not approved under the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Risk Evaluation and Mitigation...

    On Wednesday's Full Frontal show on TBS, abortion-obsessed comedienne Samantha Bee celebrated moves by abortion providers to help women have abortions at home during the pandemic. As she listed several issues like the difficulty some workers have in being eligible for unemployment benefits that the pandemic has helped highlight, she then turned her attention to the efforts to make abortions easier to get. She began: SAMANTHA BEE: And here's one more example of, "Hey, maybe we should have been doing this all along. "An FDA-approved research program is helping expand abortion access in some states. And it happens to have...

    It’s really sickening to think that the folks weaponizing a natural disaster’s death toll to bash conservative policies are also seeking to make abortion as accessible as making a phone call or ordering medication online. The New York Times reported on the growing prevalence of from-home, do-it-yourself abortions during the coronavirus pandemic. As some abortion clinics have been ruled “non-essential” businesses by state governments in Arkansas, Texas, Oklahoma, etc. -- lamentable for lefties who also say that conservatives aren’t doing enough to save virus victims -- the outlet reassured desperate moms that “TelAbortion” is a popular new option. NYT explained...

    By its very definition, medicine saves lives by treating or preventing diseases. But now, some in the media are distorting its meaning to include abortion – the ending of another’s life. On April 28, The New York Times published a piece examining, “Abortion by Telemedicine.” In the story, health and science writer Pam Belluck cited several women who obtained abortions through TelAbortion, a telemedicine program that provides video consultations with abortion providers so that pregnant women can take abortion pills on their own without having to visit an actual clinic. Both TelAbortion – and Belluck – recognized the pills that...

    More women are turning to an experimental at-home abortion program to abort their unborn babies during the coronavirus crisis. The TelAbortion experiment, approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), mails abortion drugs to women in 13 states. In some cases, the women may never see a doctor in person before aborting their unborn babies. As states restrict travel, health care, business and other things deemed “non-essential” due to the coronavirus, more women are contacting the experimental program. New York Daily News reports TelAbortion saw a 30% uptick in “virtual visits” between February and March. The pro-abortion has group mailed...

    The abortion lobby is using the COVID-19 pandemic to quickly expand access to the abortion pill… and in the process, they are placing women at greater risk. In part one of this series on “no-test abortion,” Live Action News introduced the protocol, which enables abortion profiteers to dispense the abortion pill without conducting any ultrasounds (to rule out ectopic pregnancy and accurately date gestational age) or lab tests/blood work. While the details of this protocol came to light during a recent webinar sponsored by the Society of Family Planning (SFP) — which included Gynuity Health Projects and others with profit...

    During March, the Abortion Pill Rescue Network saw a record number of calls for abortion pill reversals. Andrea Trudden, director of communications for Heartbeat International, which runs the Abortion Pill Rescue Network, told Live Action News that 105 mothers started the process of halting their chemical abortions after calling the hotline. Trudden said, “We are now seeing over 80% of our callers start the reversal process.” The abortion pill reversal method is available to mothers who begin the abortion pill regimen and regret their decision. Because chemical abortion is a two-step procedure, it may be possible to stop the death...

    LUVERNE, Minnesota, April 21, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – Planned Parenthood’s attempt to quietly establish a new location in a Minnesota town was quickly stymied by community pressure recently, according to local pro-life leaders. Planned Parenthood North Central States (PPNCS) had attempted to “sneak” a new Luverne location into a building shared by an American Family Insurance office and a nonprofit domestic violence group, Students for Life reported. The Rock County Star Herald added that the location was intended to dispense chemical abortions via telemedicine (or “webcam”) appointments, and that neither the AFI office nor the nonprofit, Southwest Crisis Center, knew of...

    April 16, 2020 (LiveAction) – The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, a known financier of pro-abortion organizations, is also funding an international “family planning” organization that distributes the abortion pill worldwide. DKT International operates “offices in 24 countries” and boasts that it is “one of the world’s largest providers of family planning.” But while DKT portrays itself as “a non-profit, non-governmental organization (NGO)” that “operates like a social enterprise,” DKT International also openly sells the abortion pill (mifepristone) as well as manual vacuum aspiration (MVA) kits. In addition, DKT may also be the marketing company behind pills that are being...

    Planned Parenthood is once again using the COVID-19 pandemic to expand abortion. This time, the largest abortion provider in the nation has announced its intention to expand telemedicine services nationwide, including abortion. Telemedicine generally allows physicians to communicate with patients remotely, which might work for some of Planned Parenthood’s shrinking health services. However, under a safety system put in place by the FDA called REMS (Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy), patients accessing telemedicine for abortion would still be required to come into the facility in order to obtain the abortion pill while the abortionist is remote. Under REMS, the abortion...

    OPERATION RESCUE ^ | April 14, 2020 | Cheryl Sullenger
    By Cheryl Sullenger The Associated Press published a crucially important story yesterday – but not for the reasons it may have intended. While the report focuses on the effects of COVID-19 on pregnant women, who are being frightened into abortions, and the abortion facilities that service them, it actually lays out a compelling case for reopening the economy as soon as possible. There are four important reasons why reopening the country would save lives by reducing abortions: * More women are likely to go through with their abortion decisions than before the pandemic. * Women who otherwise would not consider...

    MINNEAPOLIS — When the Coronavirus pandemic asked a lot of us to change what we were doing, Sarah Stoesz, the CEO and president of Planned Parenthood North Central States, said her organization was up for the challenge. "We were born into controversy and crisis," Stoesz said. "Our organization has lived that way for over 100 years. Over 100 years, we have developed a lot of muscle that allows us to quickly adapt and to iterate." Stoesz doesn't deny that some of their services cannot be delivered virtually. "There will always be a need for clinicians to lay a hand on...
  • Female Senators Urge FDA To Loosen Restrictions On Medication Abortion (Barf)

    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration should immediately revisit restrictions on mifepristone, a drug used in medication abortion, so that patients do not need to travel during the coronavirus outbreak, three female Democratic senators said on Tuesday. Under current regulations, patients seeking medication abortion ― a protocol that involves taking two drugs ― must pick up the medicines in person at an abortion clinic, even though the pills may be swallowed at home. That’s because mifepristone, the first of the two drugs used to terminate a pregnancy, is subject to a special set of FDA restrictions called Risk Evaluation and...

    (CNN)A federal appeals court late Monday night ruled in favor of supporters of abortion rights and allowed an abortion procedure called "medication abortion" to be used in Texas while an ongoing legal challenge continues. The order by the 5th US Circuit Court of Appeals is the latest development in a lawsuit that has been bouncing between federal courts in Texas, causing chaos on the ground for clinics and patients in the state. Monday's ruling is temporary, but it could stall or maybe even avert a potential Supreme Court showdown over the issue. The controversy began last month when Texas Gov....

    hen an emergency responder in one of the New York counties hardest hit by COVID-19 recently found out she was pregnant, she decided that it wasn’t the right time to have a child. So between a busy schedule of helping patients, she made an appointment for Planned Parenthood’s new telehealth service, requested an abortion, and attended an initial counseling session—all while sitting in an ambulance. Once she completed her virtual visit through the organization’s app, the first responder’s ambulance swung by her local Planned Parenthood clinic so she could pick up the pills needed to end her pregnancy. “Sexual, reproductive...

Patients accessing birth control can get it by scheduling a phone appointment with Planned Parenthood staff...

    A chain of abortion facilities in Maine have taken advantage of the COVID-19 pandemic to push a no-contact service for the abortion pill. Just six days after Maine reported its first case of the coronavirus, Maine Family Planning program director Leah Coplon had successfully implemented the program under the guise of social distancing and helping to reduce the spread of the virus. Maine Family Planning was already participating in a clinical trial attempting to prove the safety of TelAbortion with pills dispensed by mail. Currently, an FDA safety system called REMS (Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy) dictates that abortion pills...

    Pro-abortion attorneys general from 21 states sent a letter to the Department of Health and Human Services and the Food and Drug Administration on Monday, requesting that important safety restrictions on the abortion pill be lifted. Mifepristone is the first drug of the two-dose abortion pill. It works to block progesterone, which is produced by the mother’s body to sustain the pregnancy. It cuts off blood and nourishment to the growing child. According to the Washington Free Beacon, in order to commit abortions through the abortion pill, mifepristone’s Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) requires that abortionists be registered with...
