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.”
