A pro-choice abortion group has filmed themselves crossing the border to buy Misoprostol, an ulcer drug that is used off-label to induce abortions.

Texas Side Abortion Pills

According to a blog post published by Jill Stanek, Dawn Porter and members of the National Network of Abortion Funds traveled to Texas where they filmed themselves crossing the Mexican border to buy Misoprostol, an ulcer drug that is used off-label to induce abortions.

Misoprostol is available only by prescription in the U.S. and can only be dispensed by doctors for abortions. But it can be purchased over-the-counter in Mexico.

After the purchase, NNAF tweeted photos, along with instructions on how to use Misoprostol illegally to self-induce an abortion…

Stanek points out that, now that legal abortion is becoming scarcer in places, proponents are reversing course and promoting the very same illegal abortions they protested against four decades ago.

NNAF actually hosts a web page explaining how to use Misoprostol illegally, with instructions to lie to medical staff at the hospital emergency room one drags herself to.

Stanek’s full blog post on this topic is worth reading- see it here.

You may be interested in knowing that the NNAF has confirmed that legal abortion is all about profit anyway- see more in my post here !

Make note that the promotion of unsafe “illegal” abortion has always come from the same crowd tat promotes “legal” abortion.

Abortion Game Encourages Women to self abort.

¿No Te Baja? which translates as Missed Your Period? is a “Choose Your Own Adventure”-style game that schools Mexican Women on how to terminate a pregnancy using Misoprostol or other abortion pills. Abortion is illegal in parts of Mexico.

According to the radically pro-abortion RH Reality Check, No Te Baja is thorough, relateable, and easy to use:
Users of No Te Baja, through the actions of Claudia and her boyfriend, go through each detailed step of the process of self-administering a medication abortion: from the initial pregnancy test to the decision whether or not to involve the partner; the signs and symptoms of an ectopic pregnancy to calculating gestational age to indicate whether or not use of Misoprostol will be effective-and if it will be safe to self-administer.
The game advises that Misoprostol can be purchased in most pharmacies and that it may be sold under various other commercial names including Cytotec, Cyrox, and Tomispral. Users receive detailed information on how to administer Misoprostol through the mouth or the vagina, noting that, in the event of having to seek medical attention, medical personnel would likely be able to detect the remnants of the pills inside the vagina- important information for women living in areas where they can be prosecuted for inducing an abortion.

The computer game designed by Ipas Mexico . According to IPAS:

The game, When prevention fails: How to terminate a pregnancy with drugs, is available only in Spanish and presents the story of Claudia and Pedro, a young couple facing an unwanted pregnancy. Through their narrative, the game poses questions that lead users to information about pregnancy identification, estimating gestational age, and pregnancy options including the use of misoprostol for abortion. This interactive tool was developed by and for young people and caters to the preference youth often have for confidential and private information related to sexuality and pregnancy.

“We had guidance material about medical abortion that was geared toward health-care workers, but we still needed material for youth that explained in non-technical terms how to use misoprostol,” explains Maria Elena Collado, Ipas Mexico community access associate. “This is why we decided to use new technologies to develop information specifically for and with young people.” Ipas has disseminated the game as a CD-ROM.

While first-trimester abortion has been legal in Mexico City since April 2007, it is still highly restricted in the country’s 31 states, putting young women between 15 and 29 years of age—who comprise the largest age group seeking abortion services—at increased risk of unsafe abortion. Misoprostol is widely available in pharmacies across Mexico, and women know it can be used to safely terminate a pregnancy, but many pharmacy workers lack knowledge of the correct dosing regimens and don’t have the time or skills to advise women on how to use the drug correctly. Without a source of reliable information, women are in danger of buying the wrong pills (counterfeit pills are widespread), taking the wrong dose, or not knowing when to seek medical assistance or follow-up care.

How the “Game” works:

As users answer questions, they are prompted with further questions and led through various scenarios depending on their decisions at each juncture. First, the game helps women identify their stage of pregnancy. If they are nine weeks pregnant or less, then they are able to choose between options including medical abortion and other pregnancy termination services. If a woman chooses medical abortion, she is then provided accurate dosage information and instructions on how to use misoprostol.

IPAS’s board is made up of a Hodge podge of left-wing pro-abortion minded people including Deborah De Witt who is a member of the board of directors for the Guttmacher Institute , the research arm of Planned Parenthood. Jemima Dennis-Antwi, also on the board, serves as technical adviser for the Population Council.

Alan Guttmacher , who was also a Vice President for the American Eugenics Society, VP of Planned Parenthood and President and Founder of the Guttmacher Institute said this in 1967- “… I would abort mothers already carrying three or more children…I would abort women who desire abortion who are drug addicts or severe alcoholics…I would abort women with sub-normal mentality incapable of providing satisfactory parental care…”
(Source; “Abortion: The Issues”, Dr. Alan Guttmacher – President, Planned Parenthood, December 4, 1967, Harvard Law School Forum)

In 1969, Alan Guttmacher as then President of Planned Parenthood-World Population, said this: “ I would like to give our voluntary means of population control full opportunity in the next 10 to 12 years. Then , if these don’t succeed, we may have to go into some kind of coercion, not worldwide, but possibly in such places as India, Pakistan, and Indonesia, where pressures are the greatest…There is no question that birth rates can be reduced all over the world if legal abortion is introduced…” ( SOURCE: Family Planning: The needa and the Methods, by: Alan F. Guttmacher; The American Journal of Nursing, Vol. 69, No. 6. (June, 1969) PP. 1229-1234)

And in February of 1970 Alan Guttmacher was interviewed by the Baltimore Magazine and said this
“ Our birth rate has come down since we last talked.. I think we’ve hit a plateau- the figure’s not likely to drop much more unless there is more legal abortion. , or abortion on request as we call it…My own feeling is that we’ve got to pull out all the stops and involve the United Nations…If you’re going to curb population, it’s extremely important not to have it done by the dammed Yankees, but by the UN. Because the thing is, then it’s not considered genocide. If the United States goes to the Black man or the yellow man and says slow down your reproduction rate, we’re immediately suspected of having ulterior motives to keep the white man dominant in the world. If you can send in a colorful UN force, you’ve got much better leverage.

The Population Council, was founded by Frederic Osborn who was a founding member of the American Eugenics Society In 1969, the Population Council’s President, Bernard Berelson, published an article suggesting that if voluntary methods of birth control were not successful, it may become necessary for the government to put a “fertility control agent” in the water supplies of “urban” neighborhoods.

Abortion For Sale – Black Market Thrives On Baby-Killing Pills

Abortion For Sale – Black Market Thrives On Baby-Killing Pills
Published: Sunday | May 6, 2012 24 Comments

Abortion pill

Some local health professionals, including a radiographer employed to a public hospital, are illegally selling a powerful ulcer treatment drug to persons wanting to have an abortion.

The health practitioners, who sell the pills to be misused as a baby killer, fail to warn the buyers that the use of the drug can cause death.

The drug – Cytotec (Misoprostol) – is prescribed by some doctors to treat serious stomach ulcers and should not be dispensed by a pharmacist without a prescription.

Yet, it is being distributed on the black market for between $6,000 and $7,000 without a prescription and is available to anyone.

In fact, the government-employed radiographer advertises the ‘abortion’ pill via BlackBerry Messenger.

“Pregnant and afraid? Can’t afford it? Not sure of the father? Don’t put your future in limbo … Get rid of it … Abortion pills available … $6,000 one-time cost,” reads a section of a broadcast message he sent out as he asked contacts to spread the word.

“Please rebroadcast,” he asked as he peddled his illegal practice.

One reporter, posing as a pregnant university student, contacted the radiographer for the pills and after haggling, he agreed to sell her five pills for $4,500.

Asked if he was sure the pills would work, the health professional said: “The pill is good. All you need to do is swallow two and insert three.”

The government-paid health professional also bragged that he had helped to terminate many pregnancies. “Mi kill whole heap a belly,” he said.

“A something me do all the time. How you fi ask me if it work,” he questioned.

“No worry yourself, if you are not more than three months (pregnant) you’re good. Sure, sure it a go work,” he assured.

The radiographer also named three locations, including established pharmacies in western Jamaica, where he said the pills could be bought without a prescription.

Using his information and word on the street, a Sunday Gleaner team last week visited a pharmacy in downtown Kingston where we were able to purchase the pills without a prescription.
Getting direction to the establishment selling the tablets was easy.

A man standing on a corner in the heart of downtown; a vendor selling on the sidewalk, and one of a group of four schoolgirls provided directions.

The drug was provided after a request was made for the abortion pill. The person seeking the pill was told that it cost $5,000 with a prescription, but $7,000 without.

After the money changed hands, the pills were dispensed in a brown envelope with ominous handwritten instructions.

Verbal instructions were also provided.

“The best time to use the tablet is in the evening about half-hour after the person has eaten. Ingest two, and insert three, high into the vagina, one after the other,” the pharmacist advised the reporter.

Continuing, the pharmacist said: “Make sure she is lying on her back, and she has to stay in that position until half-hour time. Do not urinate, do not pass any stool, because the tablets may fall out.”

No risks outlined

But the pharmacist made no mention of the risk that the pills could pose for the woman or the unborn child.

General practitioner Dr Romayne Edwards later told The Sunday Gleaner that a pregnant woman who wants to keep her child would not be prescribed this drug if she was diagnosed with an ulcer problem.

Dr Edwards warned of the risks women face by taking this pill for an abortion.

“Persons can die from the improper use of this medication. But the problems come when the foetus is in the wrong place,” said Dr Edwards.

She added that it is extremely dangerous for women with ectopic pregnancies, as when taken for its abortive properties, the pill could give a false sense that termination was under way.

“If it is being used for its abortive properties, it should not be used outside of the first trimester of pregnancy. And when used improperly and unsupervised for abortions, it can result in haemorrhage (bleeding out) and can prove fatal with sufficient blood loss to cause death,” Dr Edwards said.

“I get cases here after failed attempts to abort and they are suffering from infection. After that, Dr Horace Fletcher and his team have to try to help them from losing their uterus,” she explained.

She was supported by Dr Fletcher, who noted that the use of the pill for termination of pregnancies is illegal.

But according to Dr Fletcher, there has been one positive side effect.

Fewer septic abortions

He said the use of the drug has resulted in a decrease of septic abortions, as well as the perforation of the uterus caused when doctors are unskilled in the termination of pregnancies particularly when the pregnancy is too big.

“With the illegal use of Misoprostol by people, they are terminating pregnancies on their own and not going to unscrupulous persons who would insert all kinds of unclean objects in them which results in sepsis and puts them in danger,” Dr Fletcher said.

“It is not safe to use it on your own. But it is safer than what used to obtain in the past,” stated Dr Fletcher.

He said, too, that the drug is used legitimately by doctors on a daily basis.

“It is used every single day by doctors to induce labour, post-partum haemorrhage (bleeding a lot after delivery) for people who have missed abortions, and it is also used for incomplete abortions,” he explained, even as he noted the danger that users face by using the pill without medical supervision.

But that has not stopped women who go looking to terminate their pregnancies as the law now allows abortions in only special circumstances.

In January 2008, a Ministry of Health-commissioned team recommended that the current laws prohibiting abortions be repealed and replaced with legislation outlining conditions under which medical termination of pregnancy would be lawful.

The posture outlined in the health ministry report was due in large part to an alarming number of botched abortions taking place on the island.

The report, penned by the Abortion Policy Review Advisory Group, revealed that botched abortions were burdening the public-health sector.

The investigation carried out by the advisory group at that time revealed that, during a six-month period, hundreds of patients suffering from problems as a result of slipshod abortions were admitted to a ward at one of the nation’s premier public hospitals.

Additionally, the group pointed out that most of the patients admitted to the ward were “young, poor, unemployed and live in economically and socially deprived communities“.

FDA Report: Abortion Drug Killing Moms, Babies

FDA Report: Abortion Drug Killing Moms, Babies, posted with vodpod

FDA Report: Abortion Drug Killing Moms, BabiesThe abortion drug RU-486 is not only killing babies but also mothers, according to a report issued by the Food and Drug Administration.

According to the FDA report:
• Fourteen women died after taking the drug.
• More than 600 women had to be hospitalized, with more than half requiring major blood transfusions.
• The drug also led to serious or severe infections in 256 patients.
• Overall, more than 2,200 women reported serious medical problems from RU-486.

“I think there’s a huge industry behind this abortion drug, and so I don’t suspect it will be pulled from the market despite the fact that it’s not good for women’s health,” said
Jeanne Monahan, director of the Center for Human Dignity at the Family Research Council.

“Women have a right to know what it does, and they’re not being told the truth,” she said.

But the problems don’t end there. Abortion businesses have also misused the drug.

In 58 cases, abortion doctors gave RU-486 to patients who had an ectopic pregnancy even though the FDA explicitly warns against doing so.
FDA Downplaying Report?

There are also complaints about how the FDA handled the release of the report. It was given to a senator who requested it but was not made public or posted on the agency’s website.

“It really wasn’t released into the media,” Mandi Campbell, an attorney with theLiberty Counsel, said. “We don’t hear a lot of mainstream media talking about this issue, talking about how abortions do kill women.”

“If you think about it, that would really put a halt to the business, if women were informed and educated about the side effects of drugs like RU-486, and really the procedures as well,” she added.

RU-486 works during the first three months of pregnancy by blocking the production of progesterone. That hormone supplies the lining of the uterus with critical nutrients needed to keep the baby alive.

Without it, the baby starves to death, detaches from the wall of its mother’s womb and exits her body.
A New Drug in Town

Meanwhile, there’s a new drug on the market, called Ella that was just released last year and is very similar to RU-486.

Critics worry it will also harm women, and they’re concerned about the way it’s marketed.

The FDA calls Ella a contraceptive because it prevents the fertilized egg from ever attaching to the uterus.

But since pro-life advocates believe pregnancy begins when the egg is fertilized, they consider Ella an abortion drug. They also say it needs to be tested in higher doses.
“It has the exact same chemical compound and mechanism of action as RU-486, so in other words it can also work post-implantation,” Monahan explained.

“So even by the Food and Drug Administration’s own wrong definition of when life begins, this drug is an abortion drug,” she said. “But they labeled it as an emergency contraceptive.”

While the government and drug companies might try to blur the line between contraception and abortion, it’s important to know the facts.
Studies show that many women who are willing to take contraceptives clearly draw the line at taking an abortion drug.

The Truth About Chemical Abortion and Women’s Health: Updated FDA on RU486

by Jeanne Monahan
July 12, 2011

A summary of adverse event reports (AERS) recently released by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and obtained through Sen. Orrin Hatch’s office reveal that in the span of almost eleven years since the approval of the abortion drug, popularly known as RU-486, in the United States, at least 11 women have died as a result of complications related to taking the drug.[1] Internationally, the number of women who have died as a result of RU-486 is at least 17.[2]

That’s not all. The dangerous complications associated with this drug continue include hemorrhaging and infection. In the U.S., at least 612 women have been hospitalized after taking RU-486; and at least 339 women required blood transfusions as a result of serious blood loss after taking the abortion drug.

Clearly highlighting the need for more stringent medical oversight, the report also indicates that 58 women were prescribed RU-486 despite having ectopic pregnancies. Yet, “[a]dministration of mifepristone and misoprostol is contraindicated in patients with confirmed or suspected ectopic pregnancy.”[3] To state it more clearly, a woman who has an ectopic pregnancy and takes the RU486 regimen places her life in danger.

It is not only women in the U.S. who are suffering as a result of chemical abortion, it is a worldwide trend. A recent Australian health department audit of nearly 10,000 abortions performed in 2009 and 2010 compared the safety of RU-486 with surgical abortion, with the outcome being in the words of one major media outlet “The Abortion Pill ‘Less Safe than Surgery’”. The Australian report showed that 1 in 18 patients who used RU-486 had to be re-admitted to hospitals (a total of 5.7% of women vs. only .4% of surgical abortions.) The same study revealed that as many as 33% of women who had second trimester RU-486 abortions required some form of surgical intervention.[4]

Marketing the abortion drug as simple and painless, such as taking an aspirin, is dangerously misleading to women. RU-486 is in a class of drugs categorized as selective progesterone receptor modulators, which, in addition to blocking progesterone necessary for the developing baby, also suppresses a woman’s immune system. Additionally, it is sometimes the case that the remains of the pregnancy are not entirely expelled from a woman’s uterus, causing infection and other problems.

Despite the seriousness and intensity of adverse effects related to RU-486, use of this form of abortion is on the rise, and frequently the regimen is dispensed with less medical oversight than surgical abortion. Even more troubling, nationally and internationally, “telemed” dissemination of RU-486 is increasing.[5] Telemed abortions involved doctors proscribing RU-486 through skype or over the internet rather than during a patient visit.

The bottom line is that abortion drugs are not about improving women’s health but are more accurately about advancing a radical pro-abortion agenda regardless of the impact on women’s health, even when it proves deadly.

He plead guilty to lesser charges in court in January.

Tercero will serve 4.5 months to two years in prison, and pay a $1,000 fine. Tercero also will pay $337 dollars for a restitution charge.
He will serve 12 months probation immediately following his prison sentence after being found guilty of tampering with evidence, and will have to pay a $500 fine.

Pharmacist pleads guilty to abortion charges
For The Review)
Published: January 19, 2011

Orbin Tercero, 39, formerly of Bath, N.Y., recently pled guilty to violation of the Abortion Control Act and to tampering with evidence, according to a press release from Bradford County District Attorney Dan Barrett.

The release continues:
The abortion crime was a felony of the third degree, punishable by a sentence of up to seven years. The tampering charges are punishable by a sentence of up to two years.
Sentence will be imposed on March 9, following a pre-sentence report.

Tercero was charged by Sayre Police Officer Nathan Ross. Police charged that Tercero, a pharmacist, had applied misoprostol, a drug with abortifacient effects, on a Sayre woman who was pregnant with his child. The woman was not aware that Tercero was applying the drug.

Officer Ross was the investigating officer.

Under Crimes Code Chapter 32, the Abortion Control Act, it is a felony for a person who is not a physician to perform an abortion. The consent of the mother is not a defense.
Under the Crimes Code chapter covering Crimes Against Unborn Child, causing the death of an unborn child is a criminal homicide but there is no liability under that chapter for acts committed with the consent or cooperation of the pregnant woman.

In the Tercero case, the mother of the unborn child later married the Defendant, Orbin Tercero. She advised us that she no longer wished to cooperate with the prosecution and wanted it terminated. She could be compelled to testify or the Commonwealth could use her prior testimony, but her attitude might have an impact on the case.

The Abortion Control Act charge was a serious felony and did not require proof of the lack of the mother’s consent.

The charge under the Abortion Control Act was a serious felony and did not require a jury finding that the mother did not consent. We concluded that conviction on that felony was an appropriate resolution of the case. It will allow the court to fashion an appropriate sentence.

This press release was submitted by the Bradford County District Attorney Dan Barrett.

Man Accused Of aborting Unborn Child Weds Child…, posted with vodpod

Towanda, P.A. – A trial date has been set for a Southern Tier man accused of killing his unborn child back in February. What is unusual about this case is the woman who he did this to is now his wife.

Jury selection for 38-year old Orbin Tercero‘s trial is scheduled for Monday, January 24th at the Bradford County Courthouse in Towanda. Back in February, Tercero gave his girlfriend a drug called Misoprostol without her knowledge or consent during sexual intercourse. This drug is known to cause abortions. Later that night, his girlfriend had a miscarriage. District Attorney Daniel Barrett stated Thursday says this case is unlike anything he’s ever seen.

“When it came in, we realized that we wouldn’t have much guidance from our experiences or of that from other offices on a charge like this,” said Barrett.

The case has become even more complicated since then because the victim is now the suspect’s wife. Tercero, from Bath, is charged with murder of an unborn child, tampering with evidence and aggravated assault of an unborn child. Barrett told WETM 18 News that Tercero was able to get the Misoprostol drug without any troubles because of his job as a pharmacist in New York.

Barrett says if convicted, Tercero faces lifetime in prison without parole. Authorities stated that Tercero was engaged to another woman when the crime happened. Authorities stated that may have been his motive for the crime. Tercero posted bail and is no longer in Bradford County Jail.

Authorities told WETM 18 News that the crime happened in Sayre, at the girlfriend’s apartment. Because of this, it is being prosecuted in Bradford County. According to the New York State Regents Department, Tercero still has his pharmacy license with the state of New York.
