Women who want to be unaware of when the baby dies would be bothered by abortion pill

An article in National Right to Life News quotes two women who had abortion by pill saying that other women may not want to go through their experience:

“According to the New York Times, two RU-486 [abortion pill] patients selected by the Population Council to appear at its October 27, 1994, press conference “agreed that some women who wanted to remain unaware of when the embryo was flushed out of the body would not like the procedure.”

Abortionist: Doctors who give RU-486 should have surgical access

From an interview with an abortion provider:

Interviewer: The most recent controversy to the abortion rights activists is that the FDA is now talking about limiting RU-486’s access when it does become available, by requiring special licensing of those dispensing the pill and that they be within a certain distance of a hospital. Do you think these proposed hurdles are justified?

Ab: yes, to some extent. If a patient begins to bleed heavily during a medical abortion, the patient might need surgical intervention. The uterus needs to be evacuated so we can clamp down and stop the bleeding. If everyone out there is prescribing RU-486 to people who do not have surgical access, then there’s bound to be some kind of a problem.”

Pro-Choice activists are adamantly opposed to regulating RU-486 and requiring doctors and clinics who dispense it to have surgical facilities available.

Dr. Randall K. O’Bannon on RU-486

Dr. Randall K. O’Bannon, who has tracked chemical abortifacients such as RU486 (mifepristone) for National Right to Life for a number of years, discusses the dangers of RU-486 in an article about a proposed law that would regulate facilities that offer it:

“It isn’t as simple as having a doctor pass out some pills. Women undergoing these chemical abortions will endure heavy bleeding, painful cramping, and various forms of gastro-intestinal distress, even if these are ‘successful.'”

Some women “hemorrhage and need emergency surgery,” O’Bannon noted. “A number of women have died in the U.S. after contracting deadly infections. The last thing you want is a doctor who is unprepared to deal with these outcomes.”

Dr. Susan Poppema on RU-486

Dr. Susan Poppema, NAF president, discusses one problem with RU-486.

“Having a group of women doing a lot of bleeding and cramping in your office, when they would rather be home, doesn’t do much for the [patient] flow in your clinic.”

She argues that women should be sent home to abort alone – despite the risk to a woman’s health and the lack of medical attention should something go wrong. This is because she is concerned about  “patient flow” efficiency in her clinic.
