A “devastating” report into abortion in Wisconsin has revealed that 11% of abortions that took place there in 2019 resulted in complications, including more than 600 incomplete abortions.
Instances of incomplete abortion — where parts of the aborted baby remain behind after the procedure — numbered 621 in 2019 in Wisconsin, up by over 750% compared to 2018.
Abortion in Wisconsin also increased by more than 5% in 2019, compared to the previous year. A marked contrast to the downward trend seen in the U.S. as a whole.
Almost a quarter of the 6,511 abortion deaths in 2019 were a result of the abortion pill, the use of which increased by 22% in a year.
Overall, one-third of cases were chemical abortions. In many instances, they were incomplete, not having completely removed the baby or the placenta, and women had to have follow-up procedures or risk infection.
Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the United States, which has three “clinics” in Wisconsin, extended the use of the abortion pill from 10 to 11 weeks in 2019, which may be one reason why complications surged.

Other complications included 54 cervical lacerations, five instances of haemorrhaging, four uterine perforations and three infections.
A SPUC spokesperson said: “These figures out of Wisconsin are devastating and an indictment of the lack of care for women, especially by the abortion industry and its advocates, who refuse to tell the truth about the risks of abortion.
“Chemical abortion is rapidly becoming more common than surgical abortion around the world, despite being four times more likely to result in complications than surgical abortion, as detailed here.
“Abortion doesn’t only kill children, it harms women. Subjecting them to grotesque procedures that are often psychologically damaging and physically dangerous, as demonstrated in the case of a 23-year-old student in Argentina who died following a legal chemical abortion, reported by SPUC.
