RU 486: More Dangerous than Surgical Abortion

The contraception/abortion juggarnaut always tries to convince unsuspecting women that their products are oh-so-safe. When the original pill came out in 1960, it reportedly was 100% effective with no side effects. That was before women began dying and having major complications from the high estrogen pill. So researchers began playing drug combo roulette to maintain the pill's effectiveness (at avoiding or eliminating babies) but reducing the death/complication rate for women. (Interesting that so little research goes into birth control pills for men. Because most researchers are men, perhaps?)

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.

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...
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.

I wonder how God looks at a woman who murdered her little baby.

I wonder how God looks at the man who pressured her to do it and should have protected both his child and the child's mother.

In view of God's mercy, I don't think there's any question how He looks at both mother and father. He leaves the 99 and goes in search of the lost sheep. Let's pray and do penance for these poor parents who often create a hell on earth for themselves.
