Abortion pill needs intravaginal ultrasound to be “safe”

Dr. William West, who runs an abortion clinic in Dallas, says that the abortion pill should not be used in foreign countries to provide abortions (as many pro-choicers suggested) because there is a need for an intravaginal ultrasound to be done before and after. Without this, the abortion pill would be dangerous.

”Few of these doctors in every hamlet, village and town who are supposed to make medical abortions so widely available have ultrasound equipment or the expertise to use it. ”They are not going to acquire such expensive equipment to enable them to do a few medical abortions that won’t come close to paying for it.’

The way to check on an early pregnancy is with intravaginal ultrasound.

Even with intravaginal ultrasound, the abortion pill has killed women.
