Every day, women around the world deal with the pain and grief of losing a baby in a miscarriage. Never one to show much compassion to women or their loved ones, Planned Parenthood is taking advantage of the term miscarriage to justify abortion.

As the pro-life group STOPP reports, one Planned Parenthood abortion clinic has begun using plannedparenthood32bthe term “voluntary miscarriage” to characterize an abortion that purposefully takes the life of an unborn child via the RU 486 or mifepristone abortion drug.

Moreover, the Planned Parenthood abortion facility in question is putting women’s health and lives at risk by instructing them to tell hospitals that they have had a miscarriage instead of a drug-induced abortion when facing medical problems and complications afterwards.

STOPP has just learned from a reliable source in the York, Pennsylvania, area that several women she has spoken with recently leaving the Planned Parenthood facility hsadwoman16ave reported that they were told by Planned Parenthood staff that their medication-induced abortions that were started there are not abortions; that the women are instead having voluntary miscarriages.

The women have been additionally coached by Planned Parenthood staff that if they have problems and need to go to the emergency room, they should tell the hospital staff there that they are having a miscarriage.

How very convenient for Planned Parenthood—absolving itself of liability for the harm it is doing to women. The organization merely takes the money and runs. It can’t get more back-alley or deceptive than this.

And how perfectly dismal for the women PP is injuring and abandoning. This is what Planned Parenthood really means when it says, “Care. No Matter What.”

This should come as no surprise. After all, it was Planned Parenthood’s own instructions on how to misuse the abortion drug that led to eight women dying from it and countless others to be injured.
