RU486: Greatest Invention of the 20th Century?

George Grant, writing in 1992, talked about how pro-choice activists viewed the abortion pill:

Eleanor Smeal, president of the Feminist Majority Foundation says that RU-486 is a “truly remarkable” drug that has “amazing properties which hold tremendous promise for the benefit of women.” She also calls it “an historic breakthrough in medicine.”


Etienne–Emile Baulieu who was the chief developer of the abortion pill and an international spokesman for Planned Parenthood:

called the pill “the most important invention of the 20th century.”

George Grant Grand Illusions: the Legacy of Planned Parenthood(Franklin, Tennessee: Adroit Press, 1988, 1992) 35

A pill that kills babies, puts women through hell, and endangers women’s lives and even kills them is not the most important invention of the 20th Century.
