And now fifty years later we have the wonderful alternative to surgical abortion called RU 486 which is turning out to be pretty dangerous for the women who take it. Here's some info from a recent Australian study reported by LifeSiteNews:
Drs. Ea Mulligan and Hayley Messenger examined approximately 7,000 abortions, which the Australian reports were carried out in the state of South Australia in 2009 and 2010.Let's face it. You can't fool Mother Nature or the Lord of Life. God made women's reproductive organs for one purpose -- achieving and maintaining pregnancy. When we choose to throw a monkey wrench in the works, the outcome is likely to be problematic, like putting maple syrup in the gas tank of your car. Sometimes the problems are immediate; sometimes, like breast cancer, they don't show up for years. But the reality is, aside from the moral consequences, there are physical consequences to sin. If women realized the ultimate price they pay for "solving" their problem, most would never do it. It's only because the devil dresses sin up in a beautiful package that he can seduce us into choosing it.
The study found that 3.3 percent of women undergoing the RU-486 abortion process (which uses the drugs mifepristone and misopristol) in the first trimester sought emergency room help, compared to 2.2 percent of women who had first trimester surgical abortions.
The Australian also noted that the study found that a massive 5.7 percent of women undergoing RU-486 abortion, versus 0.4 per cent of women who had surgical abortion, were re-admitted to the hospital for post-abortion treatment.
The study also found that the risk of women suffering severe hemorrhaging was one in 3,000 in surgical abortion. But the risks rose to one in 200 for women getting chemical abortion.
The rate of hospital admission for infection was one in 1500 for surgical abortion, but one in 480 for chemical abortion. See more...
