Planned Parenthood Again Shows It Cares More About Money Than the Health of Its Victims*


DES MOINES—September 11, 2008— Planned Parenthood is now offering no appointment, walk-in abortions at its clinics without a physician on site. How are they doing this? By offering dangerous RU-486 chemical abortions at all of their locations, with a Des Moines-based abortionist consulting by webcam.
“We have received word that these are already taking place at Planned Parenthood in Sioux City ,” said Kim Lehman, President of Iowa Right to Life. “Women in Iowa will die from these abortions, because there are deadly complications from RU-486 that cannot be diagnosed by webcam.” More Profitable for Planned Parenthood, More Dangerous for Women
It gets worse. Planned Parenthood does not follow FDA Protocol for RU-486. Planned Parenthood gives women a cheaper combination of the pills in an RU-486 abortion, against the recommendations of the Food and Drug Administration, which makes these abortions more profitable for the abortion group and more dangerous for women.
Planned Parenthood gives women a single RU-486 pill, instead of three recommended by the
FDA, then ups the dosage of the less expensive prostaglandin, Misoprostol, which expels the baby.Planned Parenthood also cuts back the number of appointments the FDA recommends for an RU-486 abortion from three to two, which also increases Planned Parenthood’s profits by reducing office and staffing expenses.

Women Facing Their Abortion Alone
RU-486 abortions are less messy for Planned Parenthood and more traumatizing for women, because the women are forced to deal with the blood and the dead baby at home – alone. RU-486 abortions take longer and are bloodier than a surgical abortion. Unlike a surgical abortion, there is a greater chance the woman may see the aborted baby and all of its features.
Complications from RU-486 include deadly ectopic pregnancies, bacterial infection and excessive bleeding. At least 11 women have died after taking RU-486, including five women in the United States. A woman who had taken RU-486 during clinical trials at a Des Moines clinic in 1995 nearly bled to death.
Planned Parenthood performs over 85 percent of the RU-486 abortions in the state of Iowa and over 56 percent of the surgical abortions. Planned Parenthood aborts over 12 children a day in Iowa .

Questions for Planned Parenthood of Greater Iowa

If you are serious about covering women’s health issues in Iowa , these are some questions you might ask Planned Parenthood of Greater Iowa:

1) Is Planned Parenthood worried about legal liability, since they are not following the FDA protocol on RU-486?

2) Are the doctors who perform abortions for Planned Parenthood OBGyn’s? (Or are they General Practice?)

3) Are the doctors who perform abortions for Planned Parenthood M.D.s? Do you have any D.O.’s (osteopaths) who perform abortions for Planned Parenthood in Iowa ?

4) Do the women taking RU-486 have follow-up appointments at a Planned Parenthood clinic? If so, will they be seen by a live doctor, or be consulted by webcam?

* I was going to use clients, but I realized victims is a much better word. Just when you think they can't reach a new depth of evil, they come up with a new way to do just that. When I saw this e-mail alert from Iowa Right to Life it made me absolutely sick. The "culture of death" has got to be stopped. If not, we will soon reap the whirlwind. (Hosea 8:7)
