Those who really care about women’s health and safety should be deeply concerned about the federal judge ruling July 11th, 2020 suspending the requirement for women seeking the abortion pill to visit a hospital, clinic, or medical office to obtain the pill. Abortion businesses have been using COVID-19 as a loophole to promote dangerous do-it-yourself abortions with inadequate safeguards rather than lose money from abortion sales during the pandemic. The latest push to expand chemical abortion via telemedicine eliminates the needed in-person follow-up care.
Billed as safe and effective by the abortion industry, chemical abortion is arguably much harder on women’s health than surgical abortion — and there’s certainly less medical oversight. A study out of Finland showed that women are four times more likely to suffer severe complications as a result of chemical abortion than they are as a result of surgical abortion.
Women who order abortion pills online do so at some risk. It is illegal to order prescription medication online without a prescription. The FDA also notes that prescription medications purchased online are not FDA-regulated. Fake online pharmacies can manipulate their websites to appear legitimate, so checking the pharmacy’s license through your state board of pharmacy (or equivalent state agency) is an important step to know whether you are using a safe and legal online pharmacy.

Some health care providers worry that women who self-induce abortion put themselves at risk, in part because they don’t have a physician overseeing their care: verifying how far along they are in pregnancy and screening for risk factors, like an ectopic pregnancy.
One website promotes risky behavior to women after using abortion pills, saying that it is just fine to lie to emergency medical professionals when having complications after using the abortion pill, saying you just think you are having a miscarriage. If their product is safe, why recommend you lie? Who are they protecting, their reputation, or you? Compassion Pregnancy empowers and equips women with the truth. We’re about protecting you.
Women need to be provided truth and facts when it comes to taking prescription medications.
At Compassion Pregnancy Center, we want you to be safe whether you choose abortion, parenting, or adoption. We are here to equip and empower you so that you are ready to make an informed decision.
If you think you may be or know you are pregnant, make sure you have the correct information before you make your choice. Ask for a doctor or other qualified medical professional (trained and equipped registered nurse or sonographer) to do an ultrasound to make sure you’re pregnant, not experiencing an ectopic pregnancy, and are within the time limit for use of the abortion pill.
