Because of the simple fact that RU-486 (a medication that causes an abortion) is a pill, Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry try to market it as a safer alternative to surgical abortion.

Throughout the legislative session, CAP presented legislators with research (like this), personal stories (like this), and experts (like this) that debunked this myth.

There is new data to add to this mounting pile of evidence about how dangerous this pill is. According to an audit of nearly 7000 women who had abortions in South Austrailia:

  • 3.3% of the women who had a medication abortion with RU-486 reported to an emergency room compared with 2.2% who used a surgical method
  • 5.7% of the women who had a medication abortion with RU-486 had to be re-admitted to hospitals compared with 0.4% of surgical abortion patients.

These little pills present serious threats to women’s health. To suggest otherwise or to try and diminish the dangers to women is irresponsible.
