The History of Chemical Abortion 

Chemical Abortion: RU-486, a drug cocktail consisting of mifepristone and misoprostol. These drugs are meant to be used up to 10 weeks gestation and are intended to end the life of the developing preborn human being.   

96% of biologists agree that human life begins at fertilization:  

Chemical Abortions have always been used to exploit and hurt women and their children. The nefarious roots of these drugs and how they achieved FDA approval is unjust and unknown to many supporters of Chemical Abortion.  

Here is the Timeline of Exploitation:   

1982: RU-486, AKA Chemical Abortion, was developed by the pharmaceutical company, Roussel Uclaf which has roots in the German Nazi Party. 

During the era of The Nazis, I.G. Farben Chemical Company, a pharmaceutical holding company that supplied and produced the majority of chemicals in Germany and even had a chemical plant in the location of the infamous Auschwitz camp, is a father company to the company that produced RU- 486.   

Following the Nuremberg trials, the Farben company, which was connected and responsible for heinous war crimes and the development of tear gases and mustard gas which isn't even supposed to be used in war anymore, tested on innocent prisoners and in fact 10s of thousands of prisoners died creating their chemical plant at Auschwitz. Many of their directors were found guilty of slavery and mass murder.  One director was even a part of a violent group that helped Hitler rise to power.  

“After the war, Western countries attempted to utterly splinter I.G. Farben industrial power but divided the holding company into three of its own industrial members, Hoechst, Bayer, and BASF.” 

“In 1974, the first of these three entities, Hoechst, gained a majority share of the holding company Chimio that controlled a French pharmaceutical company called Roussel Uclaf. By 1982, Roussel Uclaf had developed the RU-486 chemical abortion drug mifepristone.”  

1998: Roussel Uclaf partnered with the eugenic Population Council to get FDA approval for these drugs in the US.  

The Population Council took up the task of pushing the FDA to approve these drugs. The population council was founded by John D. Rockefeller III, son of John D. Rockefeller, Jr. in conjunction with Planned Parenthood and had been run by known and outspoken eugenicists who actively sought to decrease the population by targeting minority or “unwanted” communities. The main means by which they wanted to do that was abortion and contraception.  The Rockefellers funded scientific research by German eugenicists who later held leading roles for Nazi experimentation: 

Everything changed when Rockefeller money arrived in 1929. A grant of $317,000 allowed the Institute to construct a major building and take center stage in German race biology. The Institute received additional grants from the Rockefeller Foundation during the next several years. Leading the Institute, once again, was Hitler’s medical henchman Ernst Rüdin. Rüdin’s organization became a prime director and recipient of the murderous experimentation and research conducted on Jews, Gypsies and others.  

1983 - The FDA issues a testing permit to the Population Council, a nonprofit group, to conduct trials of mifepristone as an early abortion method.  

1994-1995 - Roussel-Uclaf gives the Population Council the U.S. patent rights for RU-486. Clinical trials involving 2,100 women begin.  

2000: After years of exploitative testing on poor women in foreign countries, the drugs were approved by the FDA. These drugs have gone on to kill nearly 30 women and hospitalize thousands of others. 

Exploitative testing did not end in 2000, in fact, studies were conducted starting in 2017 by Gynuity on African women to test the feasibility of using RU-486 in the second and third trimester.   

Gynuity conducts research to influence global reproductive and maternal health policies, and advocates for greater access to chemical abortions around the world. It has conducted clinical trials of second trimester chemical abortions in a number of other countries including Armenia, Nepal, Vietnam, Moldova, Uzbekistan, and Ukraine. 

The later in pregnancy Chemical abortions are taken, there is an increased risk for complications and death.   

2021: The abortion industry in conjunction with the FDA used the COVID-19 pandemic to decrease common sense safety regulations called REMS (risk evaluation mitigation strategies). Now these drugs can be administered through the mail with no physician oversight. 


Chemical Abortion pills are meant to disrupt hormones:  

The New York Times glowingprofile ofDr. Étienne-Émile Baulieu, “the father of the abortion pill,” reported he developed the drug mifepristonespecifically to block pregnancy. He wrote, “RU-486’s action is like jamming a radio signal,” an on-going problem when in our water supply. 

These drugs are being flushed into our water systems, by over 500,000 women every year:  

The potential endocrine disrupting properties of RU-486 makes the practice of flushing the chemically tainted blood, tissue, and human remains a growing environmental hazard.  

Endocrine disruptors do exactly that disrupt and effect reproduction, development, brain, immunity, and other issues:  

Endocrine disruptors are substances known to interfere with a body’s hormones and exposure to them is “linked with developmental, reproductive, brain, immune, and other problems.” As may be expected, that which disrupts the reproductive life of human beings can do the same to aquatic, animal, and even plant life.  

Hormone-disrupting drugs, do harm animals:  

The impairment of “the development and fertility of non-human animals and humans” can impact the food supply.    

Given the necessity of protecting the nation’s water from harmful pollutants, Students for Life of America has been filing a series of Citizen Petitions with the FDA, including calling for Red Bag Medical Waste Disposal requirements of the tainted remains of abortions. That protocol requires potentially deadly materials be collected and returned for disposal in accordance with state laws.   

Improper disposal of medical waste, IS DANGEROUS:  

The American Academy of Family Physicians, in discussing medical waste disposal in non-medical locations, notes: “Home based health care can create medical waste which can be hazardous if not disposed properly. Inappropriate medical waste disposal can pose harmful environmental concerns and significant health risks to the public … The importance of routine medical waste disposal and destruction practices should be stressed at all city and county levels of collection.”     

Two states, West Virginia and Idaho, have filed legislation that would demand the generators of medical waste – the seller of the Chemical Abortion Pills – be required to dispose properly of the human remains and tainted tissue, which are fundamentally different from the remains of a spontaneous miscarriage not chemically caused or tainted.   

At the federal level, legislators are also looking at the potential environmental harms of Chemical Abortion pills. Congress should demand – finally – a real environmental assessment of the impact of RU-486 by the EPA or FDA.   

No real testing of these drugs or other "pharmaceutical VOCs" (volatile organic compounds) are conducted by the EPA:  

When Clinton’s team brought the deadly pills onto the market, they accepted a 1996 report from the abortion-supporting Population Council who “developed and secured” approval of the pills and claimed almost no harm would come to the environment. But no one ever checked.   

The same EPA warns about flushing chemicals and hospital waste down the water ways:  

The EPA warns not to flush drugs, chemicals, and even goldfish. Hospitals dispose of placentas and medical waste carefully as medical waste, and brick-and-mortar abortion vendors are supposed to follow state laws with human remains. Meanwhile, abortion pill mills send women away to bleed and to flush tainted blood, tissue, and human remains.   


The drugs fail about 5% of the time to end pregnancy … requiring then a surgical abortion and sometimes leading to infection and other problems. 

A National Institutes of Health (NIH) published study from Medscape General Medicine reported that “the risk of death appears to be 10 times greater with medical abortion than with surgical abortion.” 

An NIH published study of data from Finland reported that Chemical Abortions have a 4x higher risk for complications and problems than surgical abortions. 

More than 100 studies show a linkage between abortion and an increased risk of mental health issues. 

 "Results indicate quite consistently that abortion is associated with moderate to highly increased risks of psychological problems subsequent to the procedure,’ the authors wrote in the study, published in the September 1 issue of the British Journal of Psychiatry. 

For the study, researchers analyzed data on 877,000 women, including 164,000 who had an abortion. They found women who had an abortion experienced an 81 percent increased risk for mental problems.” 

The rate of abortion-related emergency room visits following a Chemical Abortion increased over 500% from 2002-2015. 

No-test Chemical Abortion, which is rapidly becoming a norm in the U.S., can lead to permanent future infertility or even death from undetected ectopic pregnancy that can only be diagnosed via ultrasound & is not affected by Chemical Abortion Pills.
