The Abortion Pill

Researchers are finding an alternative [to abortion] that is safe, cheap and very difficult for governments to restrict — misoprostol, a medication originally intended to prevent stomach ulcers…

Using the drugs in combination produces a miscarriage more than 95 percent of the time in early pregnancy.

    As with so many difficult issues, problem solved with a pill.

  2. Vicki says:

    Just think. No more protestors outside of abortion clinics. No more abortion doctors getting killed. Roe v. Wade would effectively become irrelevant. No more women seeking abortions getting harassed. A lot of problems would go away.

  3. Erik Ramirez says:

    Now this would deffinetly give a preacher stress.

    Pardon me, but misoprostol, RU-486 and other medical options aren’t an alternative to induced abortion; they are a means of induced abortion.

    I am very pro-choice, but misconceptions help no one.

    One has to wonder whether these pills will ultimately reduce the birthrate by making abortion easier; or if their availability will cause couples to take greater risks — some of whom will decide to carry the pregnancy to term.
