40 Days for Life Cincinnati Update – Week 5

As you probably know, chemical abortions are becoming more and more prevalent. They are sold as more convenient and private than surgical abortions but, just as with surgical abortions, the picture painted by the abortion industry to the woman being sold the abortion is not a complete one. So I wanted to give you some information about chemical abortions to keep in mind in case you come across someone who is considering having one. Here is part of an article entitled “FACT CHECK: Dispelling 5 Common Myths about Chemical Abortion” by Mary Szoch and Ingrid Skop, MD.

1. Myth: “Chemical abortion is a safe procedure.”

“Between 2000 and 2021, 4,207 adverse events related to chemical abortions were reported to the FDA. These events include 26 maternal deaths, 97 ectopic pregnancies, 603 patients who required blood transfusions, and 1,045 hospitalizations. In the many women who required surgery, it was performed by the abortion business only 40% of the time, demonstrating that abortion businesses frequently do not provide medical care for the complications from their procedures.

The fall campaign is in its last week. Let’s fill the sidewalk each day with peaceful, prayerful public witness to the destruction abortion brings for mothers, fathers, babies, abortion workers and the entire community. If you have any questions about how to get involved or you need help signing up for prayer hours anytime from 7am to 7pm on any of our final days, my contact information is above. For many stories of babies saved and other positive results throughout the world from this fall’s campaign, go to www.40daysforlife.com.

JOIN US FOR OUR CLOSING PRAYER HOUR OF THANKSGIVING, Sunday, November 6, 2022 at 2pm in front of Planned Parenthood. Details on our website, www.40daysforlife.com/cincinnati under Local Events.
