What does chemical abortion research say?

The disregard for women’s safety is blatant in research about chemical abortion, too. A recent “retrospective case study of abortions at 13 or more weeks gestation provided by Women on Web between 2016 and 2019,” for instance, turned up some frightening results.

After buying mifepristone and misoprostol online and taking them at home…

  • 10% of women reported a continuing pregnancy.
  • 29% reported adverse events (heavy bleeding, fever).
  • 43% needed to seek subsequent medical help from a health provider.
  • 18% of all cases required a subsequent surgical abortion.

These are not good numbers. Yet the abortion-friendly researchers (including Rebecca Gomperts, the abortionist who founded Women on Web, an online distributor of chemical abortion drugs, whether its legal or not) concluded, “Provision through telemedicine at 13 to 15 weeks appears safe and effective.”

They go on to say, “Limited data suggest that medical abortion through telemedicine services may be a safe option through 15 weeks gestation in settings where there is ready access to the formal health system.”

So… nearly half of women needing to seek medical care afterwards is a statistic they’re comfortable with. Then, they have the gall to suggest that second-trimester chemical abortion is safe – provided you live very near to a hospital.

In a different study, 1000 women who attempted chemical abortions were surveyed for adverse outcomes. The results were similarly concerning:

  • 7 of them reported needing a blood transfusion afterwards.
  • 26 reported needing antibiotics for an infection.
  • For 50 women, the drugs failed and a surgical abortion was sought.
  • 93 reported experiencing any symptom for which they were advised to seek medical advice, and, of these, 87 sought attention.

Yet still, the researchers here conclude that webcam chemical abortion is “highly effective.” In fact, they say that “outcomes compare favourably with in clinic protocols.” The risk of chemical abortion takes a turn for the worse when women are sent away to deal with it alone, but the fact that it’s comparably dangerous with medical supervision isn’t good news for women, either.
