    In a deadly display of defiance, 125 women in South Korea swallowed abortion drugs in protest of the country’s pro-life laws. Korea Bizwire reports the protest took place Sunday in front of the Bosingak Pavilion in Seoul, South Korea. According to the report, 30 additional women took vitamins so that authorities would not be able to tell which women took the illegal abortion drugs. Wearing black, they demanded that the government legalize the killing of unborn babies. The pro-abortion group claimed 125 women abort their unborn babies illegally every day in South Korea, according to the report. Here’s more from...
  • Women in England to be allowed to take abortion pill at home

    Women seeking to end early pregnancies in England soon will be allowed to take an abortion pill at home under a new government plan set to take effect by the end of the year. Currently, women undergoing medical abortions up to the 10th week of a pregnancy must take two pills at a clinic 24 to 48 hours apart. The new plan would allow them to take the second pill at home. Supporters said the current requirement puts women at risk of having miscarriages while they are traveling home from a clinic. …

    Ms Buckman tried to book an abortion when she was seven weeks pregnant and waited two weeks - but the medical procedure failed and the next two appointments did not go ahead due to lack of staff. The mother-of-two's last booked procedure was cancelled just hours before it was due and she must now wait two more weeks for an appointment - a two-hour drive from her Kent home. Ms Buckman, now 15 weeks pregnant, is angry at the treatment she received at Marie Stopes UK, which carries out abortions for the NHS. Most abortions in England, Wales and Scotland...

    The pro-abortion media may have finally reached the bottom of the barrel in its pathetic decade-long push to tarnish the reputation of Abortion Pill Reversal (APR). On Saturday, Truthout ran a commentary by author Shireen Rose Shakouri, comparing the life-saving APR protocol to racist medical experiments conducted on minority men and women throughout American history. Without a shred of evidence to support the outrageous allegation against APR, the author says, the “ongoing experiment with women’s health and bodies is likely being pushed disproportionately on women of color.” To make her point, Shakouri briefly—and I mean, briefly—explores one experiment in the...

    Jessica Rosales recalls plunging into a downward spiral after discovering that her birth control had failed and she was pregnant. A financially unstable third-year student at UC Riverside, she immediately sought an abortion — something the campus student health clinic did not provide. Instead she was referred to private medical facilities off campus. One wouldn’t accept her insurance; the other didn’t provide abortions. Her grades slipped, she said, and she frequently slept the days away to escape her circumstances. Eventually she traveled six miles to a Planned Parenthood clinic that performed the procedure. Ten weeks had passed. “My situation could...

    At least 22 women have died after taking the abortion pill regimen, RU-486, and many others have experienced serious complications, according to updated data from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). While abortion — and specifically, medication abortion — is sold to women as “safe,” there can be serious and life threatening complications from the abortion pill, as noted by the pills’ manufacturer, Danco. Although Danco is required to report any death associated with Mifeprex, women experiencing complications, various factors — such as not returning to the abortion provider or not reporting use of the drug to emergency personnel —...

    OPERATION RESCUE ^ | July 23, 2018 | Cheryl Sullenger
    Columbus, OH – A new round reporting forms for 2017 and part of 2018 obtained by Operation Rescue show that complications in Ohio to medication abortions done using the drug RU486, also known as mifepristone or Mifeprex, have skyrocketed over the past two years. The rise in complications is tied to a dramatic increase in the use of medication abortions in that state. While overall abortions have steadily decreased since 1997, the use of mifepristone in conjunction with misoprostol to cause abortions has slowly increased until 2016 – the most recent year for which there are statistics – when medication...

    ROCHESTER, NY (WROC) — Brook Fiske and Sikander Imran had been dating on and off for 3 years. Imran, a doctor, had moved from Rochester to Arlington, Virginia for a new job – when he learned from Fiske, she was pregnant. “He didn’t want to have a baby so he tried to talk me into having an abortion… which I didn’t want to do,” explained Fiske. Fiske says she was 17 weeks pregnant when she went to Virginia to visit Imran to plan how they would raise the child. And that’s when she says, he poisoned her. “When I was...

    Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys representing the March for Life Education and Defense Fund have filed motions in two federal courts asking to be allowed to help defend Department of Health and Human Services rules issued in October that protect pro-life nonprofit organizations from the Obama-era abortion-pill mandate. ADF attorneys also represent Dordt College in Iowa in one of the motions. Both March for Life and Dordt College have been involved in separate lawsuits challenging the mandate, which forces employers, regardless of their moral convictions, to provide insurance coverage for abortion-inducing drugs under threat of heavy financial penalties. The new HHS...

    The abortion pill would be on hand at virtually every public college in California under legislation introduced Friday in the state Senate. The bill’s inception comes amid renewed attempts to slash funding for Planned Parenthood, which would no longer receive Medicaid reimbursements under the Republican-backed American Health Care Act. If the health care plan were passed in its current form, $174 million would be slashed from the budget of California’s Planned Parenthood clinics. Although Planned Parenthood is the largest single provider of abortions in the country, it does not use federal money to provide the procedure. “If those cuts are...

    While the number of abortions in the United States has declined, a recent report shows that women seeking abortions are increasingly preferring medical abortions, rather than surgical ones. According to data from Planned Parenthood, in a report from Reuters, medical abortions – those by pill – made up 43 percent of all abortions in the U.S. in 2014, up from 35 percent in 2010. In some places, the demand for the abortion pill tripled after March, when the FDA expanded the use of the abortion pill (mifepristone or RU486 used together with misoprostol) to include pregnancies up to 10 weeks....

    — More pregnant girls and women are taking dangerous chemicals to terminate their pregnancies, according to a Reuters news service analysis. Reviewing Planned Parenthood’s 2014 reported data, Reuters found that chemical abortions are on the rise, making up 43 percent of the total number of abortions at the nation's largest abortion conglomerate. That percentage is up from 35 percent in 2010, even though abortions generally are on the decline. Danco Laboratories, the manufacturer of abortion drugs for the U.S. market, sought to expand its customer base and the Obama administration issued new federal guidelines last March that allowed the deadly...

    Live Action News’ Danny David reported yesterday that a Planned Parenthood in Scranton, Pennsylvania, plans to close December 1. The center provided services other than abortion, though it did offer abortion referrals. Currently, 35 Planned Parenthood centers exist in Pennsylvania, with 10 of those committing abortions. The Scranton center is the seventh Planned Parenthood to close in the state in three years. If it seems we are reporting of Planned Parenthood closures on a fairly regular basis, it’s because we are. American Life League’s STOPP Planned Parenthood International reported at the end of 2015 that 23 Planned Parenthood centers closed...

    A former abortion practitioner who did 1,200 abortions but it now pro-life appears in a new video to describe how the mifepristone abortion drug works. The abortion pill, also known as Mifeprex or RU 486, slowly deprives a developing unborn baby of the nutrition she needs to survive. Today, pro-life organization Live Action launched its latest video to expose the abortion industry’s lies about abortion pill RU-486 after President Barack Obama’s Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently weakened the standards and put the lives of women at risk. Just last week, members of Congress — concerned that the FDA’s decision...

    Wichita, KS – Operation Rescue has confirmed that for the first time, the Planned Parenthood office in Wichita, Kansas, is now providing medication abortions on a sporadic basis. It is operated by Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri, which has been entangled in legal issues in Missouri over deceptive practices and an illegal relationship with a publicly funded university in Columbia. Abortions began at the run-down Wichita Planned Parenthood facility on Central Avenue on March 17, 2016, and is located in an area that allows it to target poor urban women of color. It appears that medication abortions will only...

    On Tuesday, the Oklahoma Supreme Court ruled in favor of upholding House Bill 2684, which restricts the use of abortion-inducing drugs. The legislation requires that doctors administer abortion-inducing drugs only while following Food and Drug Administration protocols. The bill was signed in 2014 by Governor Mary Fallin, but last year, an abortion chain sued, claiming the FDA’s rules are outdated, and an Oklahoma judge overturned the bill, claiming it was unconstitutional. The state’s highest court disagreed, finding that House Bill 2684 does not violate constitutional provisions. However, the court also strangely took a dig at abortion safety laws, saying, “We...

    Planned Parenthood of the Heartland, the Planned Parenthood affiliate covering Arkansas, Iowa, Nebraska and eastern Oklahoma, has filed a lawsuit against a newly-enacted Arkansas law requiring abortion drugs be prescribed in accordance with federal Food and Drug Administration standards. The law, which is slated to go into effect Friday, requires Mifeprex medication abortions (mifepristone and misoprostol) to be administered at the dose the FDA recommends rather than the much lower dosage that has become common among abortion practice, and that women take misoprostol pills in-clinic rather than on their own. Planned Parenthood claims the FDA protocols are based on outdated...

    DENVER, Colorado - Four Christian Universities in Oklahoma lost a religious freedom case Tuesday in the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals. A district court temporarily stopped enforcement of the Obama administration's abortion-pill mandate after the universities objected to it in 2013. The appeals court overturned that ruling Tuesday saying it's the insurance companies that provide the contraception not the universities.

    A women's rights group say they are planning on distributing abortion medication by drone in Ireland after they successfully delivered a batch of pills from Germany to Poland last week. The drone set off from Frankfurt an der Oder, on the border with Poland, and delivered the medication to two pregnant women waiting in Slubice who then took the pills, which had been prescribed by a German doctor. After the drone had landed, German police arrived and confiscated the pilot's controllers and iPad, although no one was arrested. Dr Rebecca Gomperts, founder and director of Women on Waves, the not-for-profit...

    Dutch campaigners have used a drone to fly abortion pills into Poland. The group, Women on Waves, flew the aircraft from Germany to highlight Poland's restrictive laws against terminating pregnancies. Waiting for the drone on the other side were two Polish women who took the pills, used to induce a miscarriage in the early stages of pregnancy. Abortion was legal in Poland in the Communist era, but outlawed in most cases in 1993. It is only permitted in cases of rape or incest, in cases of irreversible foetal malformation, or if the mother's life is at risk. The drone took...
