RU 486 the silent killer continues its work.......

National Right to Life has an article in about the number of complications and deaths caused from the "abortion pill" RU 486.
One of these deaths has a TN connection. I remember it well because I lobbied unsuccessfully against the use of RU 486  beyond the FDA recommended usage and requiring ultrasounds to be performed before administration of the drug. Even with nationally known expert Dr. Donna Harrison testifying
 about the dangers of this drug to women (I remember her saying clearly....the baby still dies but these women are also at serious risk when taking this drug.) the effort failed thanks to the TN Medical Association lobbying efforts that cooperated with the abortion supporting politicians, Planned Parenthood and the ACLU. Shame on all of them.

Brenda Vise , a 38 yr. old pharmaceutical rep from Chattanooga  died in 2002 from the administration of this drug was the victim in question. Real Choice outlines the details of her  suffering and death. Yes, she was given an ultrasound prior to administration of the first drug  and when no fetus was viewed  it  should have been a cause for considering that the positive pregnancy test might be an ectopic pregnancy. 

But no, she was told that perhaps it  was too early to view the baby on the ultrasound at six weeks. NOT SO. Then the symptoms of ectopic pregnancy mirrors that of the RU 486 abortion so when she called  to report her deteriorating condition she was falsely told that these were the normal symptoms of the procedure.

Now Planned Parenthood  plans for telemed RU 486 abortions to be their cash cow of the future. Since the abortion providers are retiring without new ones to replace them, this is their answer. The abortionist can sit before his computer screen and with a few keystrokes and skype administer this deadly drug anywhere.

·         AUL reports Arizona, Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, and Oklahoma regulated the provision of RU-486, effectively prohibiting “telemed” abortions. Well, what about TN....I knew that a bill to do the same passed overwhelmingly in TN this past session. Further investigation showed that the bill that passed overwhelmingly will not go into effect on July 1, 2011 as all the bills do after the session ends but the date was mysteriously changed to be effective on January 1, 2013.  WHAT?? How many more deaths are acceptable??
