Empowering young Australians to be a clear Christian voice

RU486 abortion pills


The federal government claims that subsidising RU486 abortion pills will not result in a surge in the number of terminated unborn babies (The Advertiser, 27/4/13).  Time will tell.

But we know for sure that the number of women who die from septicaemia or suffer severe pain and blood loss will increase.   A recent SA study of 7,000 abortions found a significantly higher percentage of complications after RU486 abortions compared with surgical abortions.  One Australian has already died – but the Therapeutic Goods Administration waited two years before revealing it. 

The psychological risks are also significant.  The latest research already shows a higher risk of mental ill-health in women who abort compared with women who carry unwanted babies to term.   The psychological impact would be significantly greater for women who have taken RU486, since their abortions can take several days – they deliver their dead unborn babies in the toilet at home.

There is a word for governments that subsidise a drug causing more pain for women: misogynist.
