Never mind all those bodies being snuck out of the back of abortion clinics everywhere. Never mind the women disappearing in China after forced abortions. Look elsewhere.
Abortionist Rebecca Gomperts who was a big-to-do with that whole Women on Waves thing, (the one that sailed around gaining more publicity for itself than actually performing abortions) said that the abortion pill is safer than penicillin. And she said in that same BBC interview that the abortion pill “is on the essential list of medicines by the World Health Organization.” I don’t doubt the second part of that for a moment. The WHO is completely politicized on reproductive matters.
The CDC reported that in 2008, 12 women were reported to have died as a result of complications from known legal induced abortions. Of course, that is a lowballed figure. But to be fair, hundreds die every year from an allergic reaction to penicillin and its other forms. So I’m pretty sure that’s what she’s basing her argument on.
That does of course leave out a few major points. Firstly, when she says the abortion pill is safer than penicillin? The first question is, for whom? Certainly not the unborn. Gomperts leaves the unborn out of the situation entirely.
Secondly, people take antibiotics because they’re sick. Women who take the abortion pill are not sick. They’re pregnant. There’s a difference. Abortion is unnecessary. Look, if we stopped giving people anti-biotics many many people would die. If we stopped giving people abortion pills many many people would live. That’s a big difference.
