One small Step for Fitchburg

There is an abortion procedure that requires no surgery and is done on unborn children up to the 7 to 9 weeks of pregnancy.  It is usually called a “medical” abortion or sometimes misnamed a “chemical’ abortion by some because 2 pills in a span of days are used to kill the unborn baby.
The most well-known version of this medical abortion is known as RU-486.  It is administered as 2 pills.  The first pill mifepristone starves the baby of nourishment, and completes the abortion in 65 to 85% of cases.   The second pill misoprostol is administered 2 days later in order to expel the baby. 
The use of the medical abortion is on the upswing, and the number of Planned Parenthood “medical clinics” doing medical abortion along with family planning is also on the upswing.  Currently, Planned Parenthood has not placed any medical abortion clinics in Massachusetts.  Throughout the country, Planned Parenthood has migrated family planning clinics to medical abortion clinics.  Obviously, this migration would be easy for Planned Parenthood to do.  A clinic with 3 new exam rooms and $100,000 of renovations would be a perfect candidate.  The medical abortion is not a “safe” abortion.  There is much bleeding, frequent emergency room visits and several deaths have been recorded.  Recently, a woman live-blogged her RU-486 abortion.
The “medical abortion” RU-486 is not to be confused with the emergency contraception (“morning after” pill).   Morning after pills, or "emergency contraception," are essentially very high, multiple dosages of birth control pills taken within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse.  There has been some experimentation using RU-486 in extremely low doses as a morning after pill.  The high dosage birth control pill is truly the morning after pill.
