Caring for the Abortion Pill Patient

Abortion Pill Statistics

  • By 2030 chemical abortion is on trend to exceed surgical abortions in America. Sadly, with the onset of COVID-19 this benchmark could be passed well before 2030.
  • Researchers found the complication rate to be 5.2% for women who took the abortion pill compared to 1.3% for women who underwent first-trimester surgical abortions.
  • Coincidentally, major complications occurred for the abortion pill at a rate of .31% while major complications occurred in first-trimester surgical abortions at a rate of .16%.
  • In addition to these overwhelming statistics, there are many physical, emotional and spiritual side effects that women aren’t prepared for before making the decision to end the life of their preborn child.

Medical Abortion Physical Side Effects

The abortion pill, Mifeprisone, carries 4-5 more complications for infection, undiagnosed ectopic pregnancy, failure to abort (women can still remain pregnant when abortion pill fails) and bleeding which will ultimately lead to emergent surgical intervention.

The abortion pill has 4-5x likelihood of complicaton of hemorrhage, which can last 2 weeks or more

In addition, the abortion pill  is an immunosuppressive drug that  can increase risks of decreasing the body’s ability to defend itself against many pathogens-such as COVID-19.

Medical Abortion Emotional and Spiritual Side Effects
