Tracy Devitt, thank you for joining us this week for family policy matters this month marks the 47th year since abortion on demand was legalized in the United date since 1973 the abortion industry has changed notably more than one third of abortions are now chemical Katrina Mosley joins us today to talk about why this trend should concern us. Mosley serves as director of life, culture, and women's advocacy at the family research Council and last month released a publication called the next abortion battleground chemical abortion Patrina Mosley welcome to family policy matters.
Thank you for having done so before we jump in and talk about chemical abortions reflect for a moment. If you would on some of the good news that we have out there. While the good news is abortion is down overall here in the US at that basically due to the rise in pregnancy resource centers at this point right now. Pregnancy resource centers outnumber abortion clinic 5 to 1 and so women are making better decisions because they have better options out there, so that is the good news, yes that is good news.
So while the overall number of abortions is dropping. The opposite is true of chemical abortions correct. So tell us about that a little bit of abortions are decreasing, which is great.
There is a rise in the different methods of abortion. One particularly is called chemical abortion. Most people will call it the abortion pill a women in just a mix of drugs to induce an abortion when she arrived and then I think primarily is been due to creative marketing by Planned Parenthood making the abortion pill sound simple, self safe and straightforward and sound private when it's actually not if anybody familiar with seeing Abby Johnson's movie unplanned. She was a former Planned Parenthood worker who became a pro-life activist, I highly encourage anyone to see her movie unplanned because it units you not only see our story of redemption. But you also see her telling her story of having a chemical abortion. You see that in the movie that part a show you the impact of what chemical abortion actually does to women and it shows you the lie that Planned Parenthood tells women that is simple, that is straightforward and that is private and absolutely not the case. Chemical abortion pill is not safe is been documented with over 4000 adverse effects that include hemorrhaging infection to the point of having blood transfusions and 24 women have already died from it. This is not a safe path is in is certainly not simple and straightforward as a multi-day process.
As with traditional abortion. The more surgical procedures. This is chemically induced, and they market this appeal as you can have this properly in your own home. You come to us in the clinic had the first pill kicked the second pill at home and ill be just naturally and magically disappear. That's a lie is a very traumatic process and that is very different from a surgical traditional abortion. Unfortunately, this is becoming the trend and I were watching the very, very, very closely because women are being harmed by it. You mentioned a couple of times the difference between a chemical abortion in the medical procedure. What are the differences between the two. While primarily abortions take place. The surgical procedures that is a more physical direct contact with the physician and the second method is called medical abortion which can be confusing when you talk about surgical abortion because it sometimes and to change the words when you see medical abortion/medication abortion. That is the chemical abortion method that is an inducing of drugs into the woman's body to produce miscarriage -like symptoms to abort the child so surgical is physically removing the child from the women to the uterus of the chemical is actually the woman ingesting drugs to induce her own abortion is. This does seem to fly in the face of what we often hear that abortion is something that's private between a woman and her doctor this sort of changes that doesn't add as far as where is that caring, trusting relationship between a woman and a doctor if they're sending her home lewdly. A diary directly changes that and this is what the abortion industry is calling the future of abortion, here in America.
This is why we are watching is very closely because when the proportions I actually tell you the truth on something you really want to sit up and pay attention and listen. They are very open and unashamed about the fact that chemical abortions are the way they want to go as far as future abortion advancements so it is no accident that today is nearly 40% of all abortion statement heavily and aggressively marketing the abortion pill as the go to method for women, there is many benefits of the abortion industry and in doing this, it is financially more competing. Why would you pay for skill surgeons and the overhead costs of the facility and receptionist and surgical tools when you can simply hand, a woman feels the financial cost to them is way more minimal than it is to do it the traditional way of abortion so you have that also want to expand abortion with pills that are easily transportable. You can expand your reach of how you're getting abortions to women, which is fat and me and dislike you said they always marketed this as a relationship between a woman and a doctor and that's completely not the case now and so when you think about the rather chemical abortion is really a business method of the abortion industry. This is not care for women else it would not be putting the burden up abortion completely on her and they would not be separating her from a physical physician who is able to get her help.
If there's complications, which often there is what they do not talk about is that chemical abortions have four times the rate of complications.
The surgical abortions. Yet this is the go to method that there marketing to women so aggressively.

We also love for you to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, they're getting to place now when they don't even necessarily think that this woman needs to speak with the doctor is not correct lewdly and the future of abortion. According to the abortion industry is telling that abortion, which is another aspect that were continually watching an element abortion is where a woman skies with the physician. He claims to assess her via the Internet or BSL questionnaire form that she filled out saying that he is eligible for the abortion pill and then he sends her a prescription to pick up the abortion pills from a nearby clinic and she gets the pills she goes home and himself induces an abortion.
So here this is another way of cutting out being in the physical presence of a physician, there's no way you can be accurately assessed over the Internet questionnaire is not substantial. Adequate to assess the woman's eligibility to see if she is NAA health in upstate to have that procedure. I wanted to lie on the questionnaire question. It tells you nothing about their physical assessment.
This is further tell you this is not about one in this is about business. Abortion is a business and they will do anything they can to protect it better than to expand their business. Even at the cost to woman safety. I do want to point out that this type of method also has dangerous implications for sex trafficking victims, and you as you've been saying this separates women funny position to separate sex trafficking victims from having to see a physical physician a physical person who may be able to be aware of the signs that she is in distress or just women who are being pressured or coerced abortion. There's no way to assess that when the future of your abortion industry itself match abortions at home and once again is just another way to show that they don't care about women. This is a business and you know it as the abortion industry uses more women to gain more profit you do have a lot of women who are willing to share the stories not to say you know what it was an empowering for me.
I don't want to ever do that again. Don't make a decision that I made in the store. The reaching people. So let's talk a little bit why appreciated the fact that you explain to us that the term medical abortion which course would be what that pro-abortion people are using chemical abortion I think is a little better descriptor but talk a little bit about some other terms.
I guess that people often confuse is chemical abortion different from RU-486 to give us a little understanding of that. Yes, good question. So chemical abortion pill regimen contains two drugs. One is RU-486, which is also known as mifepristone. So essentially it is the same chemical abortion is RU-486, but the second pill in the abortion per regimen is mis-suppressed all so is a combination of metal per stone RU-486 and try to take, which is mis-suppressed all so the woman takes the first drug in the first 24 hours, which is Mr. per stone and that truck actually cuts off the progesterone hormone in the woman's body, nourishes the baby as a developing and then after 24 to 48 hours. The women take the second pill mis-suppressed all and who actually induces the contractions to expel the feeder remains so this is a multi-day process. This could take up to 14 days and the abortion pill guide said that he could take up to 30 days to complete.
So this is a process of heavy trauma on the body physically so Planned Parenthood has videos that show that this is safe and simple and somehow the baby just disappears in the uterus and that's not so a lot of people also confused the abortion pill with plan B.
I will tell you and simple straightforward terms that differences plan B is a contraceptive that is meant to prevent pregnancy if taken appropriately. The abortion pill is meant to and pregnancy terminate a pregnancy – the main difference between Plan B and the abortion pill. They are not saying I do want to admit in this caveat when picking Plan B if taken correctly.
Yes, it is a contraceptive. It prevents a pregnancy from taking place.
But if taken incorrectly and taken to Lake it can cause an abortion. So let's talk finally about reversal. There is a way right to medically intervene in a chemical abortion and potentially reverse that and we feel 500 women take this abortion reversal and save their babies. Yes, it is possible and the weight of borescope reversal work is simply by pumping in more progesterone hormones into the woman's body that I mentioned earlier, when you take the first film is a prostyle, it cuts off the pedestrian combo in the woman's body. So with abortion pill reversal works is to take pedestrian supplements and that is what reverses the process. But you have to take this before you take the second pill of the abortion regimen suppressed. All it does not work if you've gone through both of the two-step process of an abortion pill which is mifepristone in the suppressed off if you want to pick an abortion. Firstly, has to be taken before the miss upon style that is the best way to do it and we have seen women save their babies and it has been a huge blessing and we're happy to champion that we want to see more that actually had about four states pass informed consent laws on this way abortion clinics have to tell women of the possibility of saving their baby. Should they choose to do a chemical abortion so that is great news and were going to continue to progress on that in other states as well score just about out of time for this week before we go though Patrina works in our listeners go to read your publication.
