The NRLC says women in Africa and Latin America should beware anyone peddling abortion pills.
Women in those countries are enticed on the web or social media to purchase RU-486 to end their unwanted pregnancies, but Dr. Randall K. O’Bannon of the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC) says it could be and often is dangerous.
“They are finding when they go to meet these people that some of them are unscrupulous. They take their money, they double the price, and then they get their abortion pills that may not work or could make them very sick,” O’Bannon laments. “But it’s not surprising, given the way that the international abortion lobby has been pushing these chemical methods all across the world.”
In fact, an operation out of the Netherlands works to make sure the abortion drugs can be obtained in the various nations via their website, suggesting it is a woman’s right and dismissing or ignoring the complications.
“But the concern is almost totally missing that women have died after taking these and have bled to death, contracted rare infections,” the NRLC spokesman notes. “There have been women who have died after ectopic pregnancies.”
O’Bannon adds that medical assistance might not be readily available in most of these countries, so the women could die before they are able to make it to a medical facility. That makes it even more dangerous.
He concludes that the only workable solution is to intensify educating women in Africa and Central and South America.
