    A Nebraska woman and her 17-year-old daughter are facing felony charges after the mother allegedly helped her daughter abort, burn and bury her fetus.

The pair claimed Celeste, then 17, accidentally had a stillbirth while in the shower before they placed the fetus in a box, burned it and buried it on a property located north of Norfolk. Jessica, 41, was hit with five felonies pertaining to the incident. Celeste, who is being tried as an adult, was charged with three....

    The abortion pill (mifepristone) was first approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on September 28, 2000, in a regimen with another drug called misoprostol. Shortly after the abortion pill was approved, women began dying.* In years since its approval (between 2000 and 2018), the abortion pill has ended the lives of nearly four million preborn children and has caused thousands of serious adverse effects. How the abortion pill came to the United States In 1992, Ron Weddington — a co-counsel for the plaintiff in Roe v. Wade and the ex-husband of Roe attorney Sarah Weddington — wrote an...

    A little-known European medical team is poised to become one of the most important groups in the shifting landscape of U.S. abortion bans. Aid Access, an online-only service run by a Dutch physician, Dr. Rebecca Gomperts, began shipping abortion pills to Americans from abroad four years ago. The organization’s team consists of about four doctors supervising about 10 medical staff members, and they’re difficult for U.S. authorities to reach because all are outside the country and they ship pills from a pharmacy in India. Opponents of abortion rights have so far largely found themselves powerless to stop Aid Access from...
  • Tenn. governor signs bill regulating medication abortions

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee will soon strictly regulate the dispensing of abortion pills, including imposing harsh penalties on doctors who violate them, under legislation recently signed into law by Republican Gov. Bill Lee. The measure, which Lee signed on Thursday, will go into effect Jan. 1, 2023. Once enacted, a medical clinician will be required to be physically present when abortion pills are administered to a patient even though federal regulations now allow mail delivery nationwide. The issue has become even more important as the U.S. Supreme Court seems poised to overturn the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision...

    NY Times ^ | May 5, 2022 | Pam Belluck and Sheryl Gay Stolberg
    If the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade, the legal and culture wars over abortion that have consumed the United States for decades would increasingly shift to a new front: the use of abortion pills. Medication abortion — a two-drug combination that can be taken at home or in any location and is authorized for use in the first 10 weeks of pregnancy — has become more and more prevalent and now accounts for more than half of recent abortions in the United States. If the federal guarantee of abortion rights disappears, medication abortion would likely become an even more...

    Moloch is preparing for the end of his bacchanalia of child-killing.Last week, a clear majority of the Supreme Court signaled that it was finished dipping its hands into the blood of millions of legally slaughtered Americans (see Supreme Court Humiliates Biden, Refuses to Stop Texas Heartbeat Law, and Gorsuch and the Wise Latina Have a Public Spat). By leaving in place a Texas law that outlaws abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detected, five justices essentially ruled that a state has the right to regulate abortion much as it can regulate tattooing and acupuncture.The assumption that the illegal Roe abortion...

    In Illinois, a female minor must get a parent’s permission to have a tooth pulled. She must get her parent’s OK to get plastic surgery. She will need her parent’s permission to get a tonsillectomy, should that become necessary. But, starting June 1, 2022, a minor female in Illinois will no longer need her parent’s permission to get an abortion. Abortion advocates are cheering this new law, claiming it “expands health care options” for kids. If it’s only a “health care option,” though, why leave parents out of the loop?

    Women can now terminate a pregnancy without leaving home by mail-ordering abortion pills, a new means of accessing abortion care that’s recently gained a footing in many states — including Illinois — as reproductive rights become increasingly under fire across large swaths of the country. The Food and Drug Administration on Thursday eased long-standing medication abortion restrictions that once required clinicians to dispense the medicine in person, a historic decision lauded by reproductive rights activists and condemned by abortion opponents. The FDA had already temporarily waived these requirements due to the unique challenges patients faced to accessing clinics and hospitals...

    Comments: garymichael 12/08/21 - 12:07AM If a woman wants/needs to abort a pregnancy she should be able to do it safely and quickly and without nosy neighbors trying to collect a bounty. If the Supreme Court allows an atrocity like the Texas Law then they will diminish the reputation and authority of the Supreme Court because people will ignore the Texans and just go to another state and have an abortion if it's needed. Or as this article points out, they will take an abortion pill. Doing that those same people will be thumbing their noses at the law and...

    A former nurse for the NHS was jailed for three years, and has been barred from practicing by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) for supplying abortion pills so a friend could force an abortion on a pregnant woman. Robin Christy was working at Central London Community Healthcare NHS Trust when his university friend, Kasam Rahman, requested the abortion pill. Rahman passed them on to another friend, Isaac Lyndsay, who force-fed them to his pregnant partner in 2018. Luckily, the baby survived, although born prematurely at 26 weeks. All three men were arrested, and Christy was charged with conspiring to...

    Daily Beast gender reporter Emily Shugerman has published a hit piece criticizing Live Action for an ad campaign promoting abortion pill reversal. Shugerman, who is ardently pro-abortion and has been working to attack the Texas Heartbeat Act, argued that abortion pill reversal is dangerous and unproven, and cited a litany of activists from within the abortion industry to make her point. The article is based on a report from the Center for Countering Digital Hate, which stated that Live Action’s ads were viewed millions of times on Facebook and Google. The abortion industry opposes abortion pill reversal, which tends to...

    An abortion activist is trying to demonstrate what an abortion by pill is really like. But her efforts are misleading – at best. To show women that abortion “doesn’t necessarily need to be a huge deal,” Amelia Bonow, the cofounder of Shout Your Abortion, recently swallowed abortion pills on camera. In a two-part video series, Bonow ordered the pills online and walked through the process of taking them – by taking them herself. But it was unrealistic for at least two reasons: Bonow wasn’t pregnant and she didn’t film what happened after she swallowed the pills. Bonow’s organization, Shout Your...

    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 (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...

    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...
