RU 486 Abortions: When “Between a Woman and Her Doctor” Turns Out to be False


Specifically, the law is a Chemical abortion is the “cash cow” of the abortion industry. Contrary to pro-abortion claims that abortion should be between a woman and her physician, the reality is that there is little to no “physician-patient relationship” in the chemical abortion context. Women are given drugs and sent home to self-abort without any medical supervision.

Of course, this allows abortion providers to “serve” more women in a day—and cash in on their abortions. Seeking to protect the health of women, many states, such as Oklahoma, have sought to pass legislation reining in such misuse.

An abortion pill killed my daughter


The U.S. Supreme Court recently accepted a case Cline v. Oklahoma Coalition for Reproductive Justice,challenging Oklahoma’s regulation of the abortion drug Mifeprex commonly known as mifepristone, RU-486, or The Abortion Pill.​

The case is an appeal by the state of Oklahoma from a ruling by its Supreme Court striking down a 2011 law that requires prescribing physicians to follow the FDA’s protocol for administering the Mifeprex abortion pill regimen using a combination of two drugs; mifepristone and misoprostol.

More on the Pill

by Andrea Mrozek

There’s a new book out about the Pill. This review pans the book:

In her new book Sweetening the Pill: or How We Got Hooked on Hormonal Birth Control, Holly Grigg-Spall offers what she calls a “feminist critique” of hormonal contraception. She argues that the so-called liberating force  of the pill has been illusory. She claims that the pill keeps women in the thrall of patriarchal capitalism and destroys their health in the process. The addiction allusion in the title is not a metaphor—Grigg-Spall is convinced that the pill is an addictive drug.

Judge Blocks Oklahoma Law Preventing Young Teens From Getting Morning After Pill


A judge has put the brakes on an Oklahoma law that would prevent young teen girls from getting the morning after pill.

The decision comes after the Obama Administration, this summer, dropped its legal battle against a judge’s decision that would allow young girls to purchase the Plan B morning after pill over the counter.

That decision essentially allowed anyone to purchase the drug and opponents of the decision say it paves the way for male sexual predators to purchase the drug for girls they victimize, by removing safeguards currently in place.

Is the Morning After Pill Coming to a Vending Machine Near You?


I seldom get hot under the collar on the air. But a recent decision by the Obama administration has got my dander up.

Last week, the President threw America’s parents and their daughters under a bus. And I’m hopping mad about it—and not just because I have a young daughter of my own.

First, a little history: In 2011, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius overruled the Food and Drug Administration’s request to make the “Plan B One-Step” drug available to all women and girls without a prescription, no matter their age. Plan B is a so-called emergency contraception drug that its maker admits could “inhibit implantation” of a fertilized egg in the womb. Sebelius agreed with the decision to distribute the drug—but insisted girls must be at least fifteen to purchase Plan B One-Step.

Do Birth Control Pills Cause Abortions? An Ob-Gyn’s Take


by Susan Warhus, M.D.

Q. Do birth control pills cause abortions?

A. Gee, I didn’t realize how controversial this topic was until I started to do the research to answer your question!

Most everyone agrees that contraceptive barrier methods (condoms, diaphragms, cervical caps, spermicide) form a chemical or physical barrier that prevents the sperm and egg from getting together. Therefore, assuming contraception is effective, a fetus forming or an abortion occurring is essentially impossible.

The debate sparks up when other forms of birth control, such as the intrauterine device (IUD) and hormonal contraception (pills, injections, rings, patches, implants) come up.

Did you know the World Health Organization ranks The Pill as a Group I carcinogen?


by intern Anne Marie

Perhaps the best-kept secret of modern medicine is the link between oral contraceptives and increased breast cancer risk.

While combined oral contraceptives, better known as The Pill, rank as Group I carcinogens according to a 2005 report released by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (Preamble here), an arm of the World Health Organization, doctors continue to routinely prescribe the pill for a variety of conditions, ranging from acne to birth control (American Cancer Society, 2008)….

The Pill Destroys Life


If you are already on the pro-choice side of the house, feel free to skip this part. After all, if life begins whenever you define it (instead of, oh I dunno, at the beginning) then the fact that The Pill causes abortions won’t be of any consequence to you. But for the sane among us, educate yourself:

How the Pill Works as an Abortifacient:


The Pill as it exists today does not just prevent life from ever coming into being, it destroys it after it is created. A human person is killed by The Pill.

Throwing in the towel


by  Mike Fichter

It’s official – the Obama administration has thrown in the towel on its half-hearted effort to keep age restrictions on the over-the-counter sale of so-called “emergency contraceptives.”  The unsurprising capitulation now paves the way for what the Food and Drug Administration promises will be swift approval for making the drug openly and readily available to girls of any age.

Welcome to the latest lowlight in this culture’s mad rush into the abyss.

Welcome to an America where pills that can kill a new life after fertilization may now be stocked next to chewable vitamins and superhero bandages.
