A 32-year-old woman in India has been found dead after using chemical abortion drugs in an attempt to terminate an early pregnancy.
Michael Robinson, SPUC Director of Communications said: “Despite chemical abortion drugs causing damage and even death to women around the globe, pro-abortion advocates continue to hail the drugs as ‘safe and simple.’ Women’s health and lives are being sacrificed for the sake of this agenda driven line of deceit.”
The unnamed woman, who had an 18-month-old daughter, was six weeks pregnant when she consumed the chemical abortion drugs.
It is understood that the woman’s husband obtained abortion drugs from a medical representative who was aware that the husband and the victim’s in-laws intended to perform a DIY home abortion with the drugs.
After consuming the abortion drugs, the woman experienced hemorrhaging and severe pain. The medical representative who provided the abortion drugs advised the family to use a painkiller prescribed by himself. Hours later the woman was dead. Autopsy reports indicate that the woman died due to an overdose of the drugs.
Police in the Indian region of Kashimira were called to a family home after they were informed of the woman’s death. Police later launched an investigation and seized bloodstained bedsheets, pills and painkillers from the home.
Medical officials confirmed that the pills found in the residence were intended to induce an abortion.
This is an ongoing investigation and police in Kashimira have now “booked” six people, suspected of involvement. The suspects include the deceased woman’s husband, in-laws, a family doctor and a medical representative.
The fatal complications of chemical abortion drugs
In 2018 the Food and Drug Administration updated their guidance to reveal the disturbing fact that 22 American women had been killed by chemical abortion drugs. The official website stated: “As of December 2017, there were reports of 22 deaths of women associated with Mifeprex since the product was approved in September 2000, including two cases of ectopic pregnancy resulting in death; and several cases of severe systemic infection (also called sepsis), including some that were fatal.”
It is reported that the deceased women perished from a range of complications associated with the abortion drugs including; liver failure, sepsis, toxic shock syndrome and haemorrhaging.
However, the FDA report further described the appalling side effects inflicted upon women taking the chemical abortion drugs. Between 2000-2012, there were 2740 cases of severe complications. In the last five years, there have been 289 complications each year including, 273 hospitalisations,103 infections and 182 cases of blood loss resulting in urgent transfusions.
Michael Robinson, SPUC Director of Communications said: “With an array of pro-abortion advocates peddling the same message, they also appear to possess the same blind-spot. Whilst repeating snappy slogans such as ‘safe and simple’ they refuse to acknowledge the women who are harmed or killed by these deadly abortion drugs.
“The health of women must is being trivialised for the sake of a pro-abortion agenda.”
SPUC’s Hidden Cost of Home Abortion Campaign
In April, SPUC launched a major public health campaign; The Hidden Cost of Home Abortion.
The Hidden Cost campaign has called for the immediate reversal of a dangerous home abortion regime which sees women perform their own abortions at home using chemical abortion drugs.
SPUC have highlighted a list of concerns to the Heath Secretary discussing how a home abortion regime endangers the health and wellbeing of women.
