Planned Parenthood Touts 15th Anniversary Of “Medication Abortion”

Planned Parenthood is using the 15th anniversary of an FDA decision approving “medication abortion” (pills like RU-486) to advocate for increased access to the controversial drugs at the nation’s largest abortion provider.

According to a press release from Planned Parenthood Federation of America:

Women in the United States have been safely and legally using mifepristone and misoprostol for medication abortion for over a decade. Today marks the 15th anniversary of the FDA decision to approve medication abortion for use in the U.S. Studies continue to show that medication abortion is safe and effective.

“Today we know, just as we did 15 years ago, that mifepristone is a safe and effective method of obtaining an abortion,” said Dr. Raegan McDonald-Mosley, Chief Medical Officer for Planned Parenthood. “Not only has it allowed women the option of a more private method of ending a pregnancy in a setting in which she feels most comfortable, it has also been crucial in expanding access.”

Since it was approved by the FDA on September 28, 2000, the use of medication abortion has grown steadily. Today, one in three women chooses this method in order to end an early pregnancy. Medication abortion generally can be used up to 63 days — 9 weeks — after the first day of a woman’s last period. In some locations, medication abortion is available up to 10 weeks.”

>>>How does the “abortion medication” process work?

“It is taken in three steps,” the Planned Parenthood release said. “First, a health care provider will give the patient a dose of mifepristone, taken in the form of a pill. Within two days of taking mifepristone, the patient will take a second medication — misoprostol, also in the form of a pill. Lastly, a health care provider checks that the abortion is complete with an ultrasound or blood test.”

Planned Parenthood says they are pioneers in the medication abortion field.

“As pioneers in expanding access to medication abortion, we have seen firsthand the tremendous difference this method has made for women in rural and remote communities, and in health centers where we would otherwise not be able to provide abortion,” said McDonald-Mosley. “In fact, in 27% of Planned Parenthood health centers, medication abortion is the only abortion method offered.

They also blasted attempts to regulate them.

“Unfortunately, opponents to legal abortion have passed laws to severely limit access to medication abortion. Planned Parenthood health centers see women every day who have been forced to delay care and travel hundreds of miles or even out-of-state to access abortion services. These restrictions have done nothing to make abortion safer — all they have done is make access to abortion more costly and less available to some of the women who need it most.”

Planned Parenthood officials believe access to abortion medications should be increased.

“By expanding training and education about medication abortion — as well as the ability to provide this method — to a broader range of providers, such as family practice and internal medicine doctors, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and certified nurse midwives, the availability of abortion could be greatly expanded into more communities,” the company said in a press release.

Others have disagreed with Planned Parenthood’s advocacy of the “abortion medications.” According to an article from the New York Times shortly after the FDA’s approval:

“Last Wednesday, a California teenager died at a hospital in Pleasanton, just days after taking prescription pills to abort her early pregnancy. The circumstances surrounding her death are unclear, and an autopsy is under way.

But battle lines are already being drawn, with opponents of abortion saying the death of the woman, Holly Patterson, 18, shows why the abortion pills are too dangerous to remain on the market, while abortion providers say it shows no such thing.”

>>Planned Parenthood bills itself as “a trusted source of reliable health information that allows people to make informed health decisions. We do all this because we care passionately about helping people lead healthier lives.”

  1. sick muthaphukkka’s, to support what was clearly on those tapes is beyond being inhumane…That Richards chick needs a ride in the ISIS cage!

  2. THE NEW CHANT SHOULD BE “KILL A BILLIONAIRE” GET ZUCKERBERG’S ATTENTION.
    KILL A BILLIONAIRE KILL A BILLIONAIRE KILL A BILLIONAIRE THEN THEY WILL HAVE SOME SKIN IN THE GAME IF WE GO TO WAR EACH BILLIONAIRE MUST KICK IN 1 BILLION

  3. Margaret Sanger would be so proud of the killing machine she created. And the fact that the democrats will lie to keep that killing machine going while having American taxpayers pay for it, is above and beyond her wildest dreams.

    • Not too mention her hatred for the African American race, her wildest dream never envisioned killing two birds with one stone… Yet the Black Community ignorantly continue supporting a party that for the most part despise them, use them and work feverishly to keep them dependent, poor and forever voting Democrat… Sad

    • >55,000,000 MURDERED thanks to her and the left !

      Murder is stopping a heartbeat

      Abortion stops a heartbeat

      Abortion = MURDER !

  4. These baby-killing, genocidal women are no better than the mass-murdering men who shoot up public places. Planned Parenthood belongs on the list of terror organizations. How about taxpayer funded drone treatment for Dr. Raegan McDonald-Mosley and the P.P. leadership?

  5. Anti-racists say there is a RACE problem that can only be solved when
    the third world pours into EVERY White country and “assimilates.”

    What if I said there was a RACE problem that could only be solved if
    hundreds of millions of non-Blacks were brought into EVERY Black
    country? How long before people realize I’m not talking about a RACE
    problem, but the conclusion to the BLACK problem?

    They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-White.

    Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-White.

  6. ‘For behold, the days shall come, wherein they will say: Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that have not borne, and the paps that have not given suck. Then shall they begin to say to the mountains: Fall upon us; and to the hills: Cover us.’

  7. Planned Parenthood President: “We Look At How To Expand Into Areas Particularly Where There’s Unmet Need”

    The killing of more minorities is their “unmet need”.
    Liberal/progressives continue to expand their eugenics programs as part of their war on minorities. A war enabled by the low information class.

  8. Planned Parenthood – so in your face and proud about killing the unborn – the democrat party platform on display

  9. PP employees are slowly rotting from the inside out. Their malodorous stench of death reeks out of their pores akin to the aroma of cancerous cells.

  10. Determining where life begins has always been an issue for the left. Yet if someone murders a women whom is with child, the assailant is charged with DOUBLE homicide.

  11. Systematic, legal (so far) killing as prescribed by Planned Parenthood should qualify them as a terrorist organization. Every PP location should be raided, all records collected, the ‘doctors’ jailed and prosecuted, and then the doors shuddered. If poor women want a mammogram or a pap smear there are a number of alternative offerings that should be able to provide those services. This is how Satan works (and I am not a religious fanatic by any stretch of the imagination); through the lens of healthcare for women, systemic murder and the harvesting of body parts has been achieved; the culture of death, death, death. America needs to reject the culture of death. The only other group of people who immerse themselves in a culture of death is ISIS. If I had a dollar for every TV show or ad that showed people killing people or shooting guns in say six months, I could retire. God help us.

  12. Republicans hate abortions, yet they support killing innocent people through the military. democrats hate wars, but support abortions. Both sides find a way to justifying killing innocent people.

    • “yet they support killing innocent people through the military”
      Name one that supports killing innocent people through the military. Besides Obama, of course. “I’m pretty good at killing people”

      • President Obama is not a Republican and he isn’t running for office in 2016. Republicans love the military, wars and killing innocent people through wars.

          • Funny how libs “forget” Obama is half white. And as murderous and racist as any white guy. And I don’t know what your “white party” is, but I’m sure if it’s anything like the KKK, it too is a product of “liberal” democrats. And your dumb lying azz still can’t name ONE.

          • The KKK was formed by Conservative Democrats and now the Conservative White Party owns the Klan. The White Party is 90% old white people and mostly old white guys. Deal with the facts, I understand that is difficult for the White Party that is imploding.

          • Whatever you say. That must be why republicans are running blacks and Hispanics while the left is running old, rich, white establishment elitists. You know, “The Man”. Dumbasz.

            P.S. And you STILL CAN’T NAME ONE! What’s wrong dummy, I can name a democrat that was in the KKK. Give me just one republican. from the last century. JUST ONE!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!. He doesn’t even have to be a senator!! You are the definition of a DUMBASZ.

    • oh look, it’s one of those middle of the road fellows who think he’s the smartest guy in the room. Grow some balls and take a side.

        • Let me guess political hipster:

          You’re against abortion, but still think it’s up to the woman.

          You love Ron Paul because he would legalize weed.

          “End the Fed” is on some kind of paraphernalia in your home.

          You think of Conservatives just stick to a economic issues that will win landslide after landslide.

          Banksters control the world markets.

          W knew 911 was coming.

          We should burn the boats and not project power.

          Trust me, you’re not the special unique independent snowflake you think you are.

          • No problem old man, your rant resembles a guy who still pours oil down the kitchen sink and wants America to be like Leave it to Beaver. You are very special Nancy

  13. Libs justify abortion saying: “It isn’t a baby until several months – or until it is born.” That’s like saying: H2O isn’t water until you can drink it from a glass. A course in basic chemistry or biology might help them a bit – but they’ll never admit the logic or truth of it. That’s why they’re Libs.

  14. Celebrating 15 years of chemical MURDER. Any old SS concentration camp guards still hiding are applauding your efforts.
