In just about every contract, we are told to read the fine print. This is also true of abortion which is being marketed as a safe/simple procedure. Despite the fact that there are NO requirements to report abortion complications and definitely none that follow long-term abortion related injuries, the abortion industry claims that abortions are safe. However, a look at abortion consent forms reveal that there are, in fact, serious complications associated with abortion. In addition, they reveal that if a complication occurs, the abortion patient, not the clinic, may be held financially responsible for continued care once transferred to a hospital.

A first trimester abortion occurs within the first 12 -14 weeks of pregnancy. One of the most common terms for an early abortion is the D&C or vacuum aspiration abortion. In describing what takes place in this kind of abortion, Planned Parenthood writes on their website that the abortionist, “will empty your uterus with machine-operated suction or with a hand-held device that creates suction through a syringe. D&C (dilation and curettage) refers to use of medical instruments to open the cervix or mouth of the uterus so that the uterus can be emptied — dilation — and the use of a narrow metal loop called a curette to clean the walls of the uterus — curettage. This method is used from four to 16 weeks after a woman’s last period.”

This California handbook on abortion describes the early method this way, “ First-trimester abortions usually are completed by medical abortion (usually to 9 weeks) or aspiration curettage (often referred to as dilation and curettage, or “D&C”)…In a Dilation and Curettage (“D&C”) abortion the cervix is dilated and the walls of the uterus are scraped to remove the contents of the uterus. D&C is a general term and can refer to vacuum aspiration as well as use of the metal curette…

Other terms used to describe aspiration abortion include:

    Surgical abortion (elective or therapeutic)
    Vacuum aspiration
    Suction curettage
    Manual vacuum aspiration (“MVA”)
    Electric vacuum aspiration (“EVA”).

Manual Vaccum Aspirator

Surgical abortion is the most common term for abortion procedures that use uterine aspiration or evacuation as the handbook mentioned above describes further:

    Vacuum aspiration is typically used for first-trimester abortions, but suction may be used to complete early second trimester procedures.
    Vacuum aspiration is the primary method through 12-14 weeks.
    Suction is accomplished with a hand-held manual vacuum aspirator (“MVA,” sometimes referred to as manual uterine aspirator, or “MUA”) MVAs can be used for termination up to 12 weeks gestation, and as part of terminations at later gestations.
    The MVA or manual uterine aspirator must be emptied a few times at earlier gestations.
    Electric suction machine (electric vacuum aspirator, or “EVA”) are used after about 9 weeks

Manual Vaccum Aspirator B

Electric vacuum aspiration involves the use of an electric pump or suction machine connected via flexible tubing to a plastic or metal cannula, according to IPAS.

The Association of Reproductive Health Professionals (ARHP) has identified the manual vacuum aspiration procedure (MVA) (demonstrated in video here) as more “gentler” than electronic vacuum aspiration (EVA) because they state that in earlier abortions the, “pregnancy tissue may be easier to identify.” The term “pregnancy tissue” is used instead of the term preborn baby, in an effort to make abortion appear strictly medical and not as killing. The abortion industry generally uses the same nondescript terminology to market abortion as Saynsumthn has posted about previously.

As for risks to these simple methods, the ARHP issues this warning regarding dilation of the cervix, “Excessive force in dilation of the cervix can cause cervical or uterine injury. In addition, over dilation should be avoided with MVA because it can compromise the vacuum pressure.” And they also state that risks associated with MVA, (which the same abortion rights medical group claims is safer than D&C) include:

    Incomplete evacuation
    Uterine perforation
    Cervical laceration
    Pelvic infection
    Hemorrhage: Heavy bleeding
    Hematometra: This is a condition in which the uterus is distended with clots and blood, which fosters continued bleeding.
    Unrecognized ectopic pregnancy

IPAS Manual Aspirator

The ARHP identifies the IPAS manual aspiration syringe as the most commonly used product for these abortions. Yet, according to the IPAS instruction manual there are serious risks associated with uterine aspiration/uterine evacuation abortion procedures, noting that one or more of the following complications may occur during or after procedures:

    Uterine or cervical injury
    Perforation
    Pelvic infection
    Vagal reaction
    Incomplete evacuation
    Acute hematometra

And adding that, “some of these conditions can lead to secondary infertility, other serious injury or death.”

But, abortion is safe right? And, early abortion is safer, correct?

Well…that is how the profitable abortion industry pitches it. And, they make this claim without any nationwide requirement that abortion injuries, complications, long-term physical effects, or deaths are reported.

ANSIRH which has published it’s abortion training manual online describes abortion as posing “no long-term risk” while the pro-abortion ACOG also claims that abortion is a “low-risk procedure” unless you wait then, they claim that, “the longer a woman waits to have an abortion, the more risk it carries for her.”

In addition, Planned Parenthood and the general abortion lobby also claim that abortions and specifically early abortions are safe. In fact, a simple glimpse at the Planned Parenthood website, where a girl would go when seeking an abortion and you read this about the risks:

There are many myths about the risks of abortion. Here are the facts. Abortion does not cause breast cancer. Safe, uncomplicated abortion does not cause problems for future pregnancies such as birth defects, premature birth or low birth weight babies, ectopic pregnancy, miscarriage, or infant death.

Planned Parenthood abortion risk

While Planned Parenthood calls abortion risks a “myth” when they are marketing the abortions to women online, once the appointment is booked and the actual abortion needs to be performed, Planned Parenthood sings a much different tune. According to a Planned Parenthood abortion consent form published online, the abortion business requires women to acknowledge that the following risks could occur in connection with any surgical, medical, and/or diagnostic procedure:
(A) Potential for infection.
(B) Blood clots in veins and lungs.
(C) Hemorrhage.
(D) Allergic reactions.
(E) Even death.
And these risks and hazards that may occur with a surgical abortion:
(A) Hemorrhage (heavy bleeding).
(B) A hole in the uterus (uterine perforation) or other damage to the uterus.
(C) Sterility.
(D) Injury to the bowel and/or bladder.
(E) A possible hysterectomy as a result of complication or injury during the procedure.
(F) Failure to remove all products of conception that may result in an additional procedure.
Risks and hazards that may occur with a medical/non-surgical abortion:
(A) Hemorrhage (heavy bleeding).
(B) Failure to remove all products of conception that may result in an additional procedure.
(C) Sterility.
(D) Possible continuation of pregnancy.
They have to acknowledge that the doctor or medical assistant told them that the following risks and hazards that may also occur:
(A) Cramping of the uterus or pelvic pain.
(B) Infection of the female organs: uterus, tubes, and ovaries.
(C) Cervical laceration, incompetent cervix.
(D) Emergency treatment for any of the above named complications.
(E) Other as written…

And, this long list of risks is not limited to Planned Parenthood abortions. (Whole Woman’s Health, Philadelphia Women’s Center, Potomac Family Planning Center, Desert Star Family Planning among others tell women that abortion could end in death.

The Knoxville Center for Reproductive Health in Tennessee notifies women of the following potential risks including death once they agree to the procedure:

    Heavy Bleeding
    Incomplete Abortion
    Missed Abortion
    Laceration of the Cervix
    Perforation of the Uterus
    Infection
    Death

If the abortion patient is unfortunate enough to suffer from a complication which requires emergency care outside the abortion facility, the Knoxville abortion patient must sign that she is, “responsible for any expenses incurred for an emergency room visit or for care at another facility.”

KNoxville Repor Abortion consent

The Atlanta Women’s Center abortion clinic in Georgia has a much longer list of serious complications which include: hemorrhage, shock, cardiac arrest, uterine rupture, sterility, amniotic fluid embolism, DIC (disseminated intravascular coagulation, Asherman’s Syndrome), perforation, infection, incomplete abortion, hematometra, cervical lacerations, incompetency, loss of fertility and death to name a few. They go on to tell patients that:

“If during the course of the abortion procedure, any unforeseen conditions or complications arise, and the doctor in his/her professional medical judgment decides that different or additional procedures including, but not limited to, anesthesia or blood transfusion or the association of another doctor, or hospitalization at a hospital may be necessary, I give my consent to such. I assume all financial responsibility for payment for additional services.”

PLanned Parenthood consent form

But, lest you assume the attitude of “sticking the cost of emergency care on the patient” is limited to your rank-in-file abortion facility only, think again. While the multi-million dollar abortion chain Planned Parenthood soft pedals abortion risks before the procedure, release forms published online indicate that they make no promises about the outcome of an abortion. In fact, this Planned Parenthood abortion consent form which claims the abortion could result in death, tells women that if they have to be transferred for emergency medical care during their abortion, Planned Parenthood will not pay for it, writing :

“No promise can be made about the outcome of your abortion. In the unlikely event that you need emergency medical care that cannot be provided at Planned Parenthood, you will be responsible for paying for it. This is the case even if Planned Parenthood sends you to a hospital because of a problem.”

Which, of course, Planned Parenthood has done.

Planned Parenthood Spokane ambulance

The pro-life group, Operation Rescue along with the help of many pro-life activists outside the abortion centers, has documented 53 abortion-related medical emergencies outside abortion clinics in 2015. Out of those, Operation Rescue states almost half took place at Planned Parenthood facilities, where the most common of the life-threatening complications included hemorrhage and perforated uteri. And they say that in Texas, documents from a recent court case that is now headed to the U.S. Supreme Court indicated that about 1,000 women are hospitalized with serious abortion complications each year in that state alone, giving a better glimpse into serious maternal injuries that actually occur during violent abortion procedures.

The Cherry Hill Women’s abortion clinic became well known after their counselor, Emily Letts, filmed her abortion causing the video to go viral.

Despite the fact that Letts claimed she did not regret her abortion, the Cherry Hill abortion clinic posts images of their post-abortion pamphlet on their Faceboook page.

1907508_10152991273873317_9035183880268535622_n

The front of the brochure reads:

    Health physical and emotional healing after an abortion requires compassionate and sensitive support. If you find you would like help in coping with any emotion you are experiencing after an abortion you may contact a counselor at Cherry Hill Women’s Center. Additional professional support services can be found inside this pamphlet.

The clinic also offers abortion Douala classes.

According to a consent form the abortion clinic has on their website the following risks are possible from the abortion procedure:

Cherry Hill abortion consent form

    fever, infection, hemorrhage, embolism, disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC), cervical incompetency, rupture of the uterus, shock, cardiac arrest, perforation of the uterus and/or bowel and death.

    INCOMPLETE ABORTION: In some instances, all of the pregnancy tissue may not be removed from the uterus and the abortion will be incomplete. If this occurs, the abortion procedure may have to be repeated.
    MULTIPLE PREGNANCIES: In the event of a multiple pregnancy, another abortion procedure may be required.
    ECTOPIC PREGNANCY: In some instances, the pregnancy might occur in the fallopian tubes leading to the uterus. This is
    called an ectopic pregnancy. An abortion procedure cannot successfully terminate an ectopic pregnancy and I will need to be
    hospitalized to treat this condition.
    HETEROTOPIC PREGNANCY: In rare instances, women may have a pregnancy in the uterus and in the fallopian tubes. This is called a heterotopic pregnancy. I have been informed that a heterotopic pregnancy may not be diagnosed on the day of my abortion. In the rare event that I have a heterotopic pregnancy, I will require hospital treatment and may require emergency surgery.

Vid shows NARAL’s hypocrisy on pro-life pregnancy centers

Posted in Abortion Consent form, Abortion on nonpregnant women, CPC, NARAL with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 14, 2015 by saynsumthn

NARAL has produced a vid accusing pro-life pregnancy centers of giving women alleged “false information” but they are hypocritical in their energy to oppose CPC’s when the abortion industry is filled with dangerous practices for women.

NARAL UC Berkley CPC

You know when you have hit a nerve when the LARGEST – I repeat the LARGEST abortion lobbying group in the nation NARAL has a full blown marketing scheme to slander pro-life pregnancy centers.

NARAL 990 2012

Just listen to the way they present information in the video below.

They do not quote one single source of documentation to counter any of the points they claim pro-life pregnancy centers make about abortion.

NARAL CPC vid

They cleverly selected “random members of the public” on the campus of the most liberal college in America, UC Berkley, who – right on cue- act shocked at what they were hearing.

Those “randomly selected members of the public” never state their views on abortion first.

Even more suspicious is that no one seems to oppose NARAL.

Now, in a nation that is majority pro-life- does that sound like a true selection of “random” passers-by to you?

The truth is that pro-life pregnancy centers far outnumber abortion clinics, 3500 nationwide according to their own stats.

Pregnancy Centers are run by donations while abortion (for which NARAL works to further) is a for-profit business.

So, if NARAL wants to question the motives and or actions of pro-life pregnancy centers go for it.

NARAL Planned Parenthood 990

But, do not for one moment think that NARAL’s motives – which are of course abortion on demand for any reason and at any stage- are pure as the driven snow.

The video begins with NARAL asking their alleged random public this question:

Who do you think are the types of people who would work at Crisis Pregnancy Centers?” they ask.

NARAL CPC vid 2

They quote no studies to show who works at pregnancy centers when they imply that medical professionals do not work at CPC’s.

But, even if that were true- pregnancy centers are NOT performing surgical procedures like – oh…say…Planned Parenthood and abortion clinics do.

But- when you try to inspect, regulate, or require abortion clinics to be operated by physicians, have the same standards as other surgical centers do, and be inspected at least once a year- NARAL fights it.

Point number two is that NARAL accuses pregnancy centers of claiming that “abortion is fatal.”

Wonder where a pregnancy center would get such an idea?

Perhaps they think of women like Tonya Reaves, Lakisha Wilson, Laura Hope Smith, Marla Cardomone and others now dead after their “safe and legal” abortions at clinics, Planned Parenthood centers, and even hospitals.

SafeandLegalabortion Marla Cardamone

Or…maybe they are referring to the unborn child who is left dead after the abortion.

According to NARAL death from legal abortion is a joke – because – and we all know the narrative “abortion is a safe and simple procedure.”

Really?

Then tell me NARAL why hasn’t that memo made it to the abortion clinics and Planned Parenthood centers who require women to sign an abortion “consent form” to waive her legal rights if she DIES from the abortion since it IS a possible complication?

NARAL also asks their “random member of the public” on the most liberal campus, “have you personally ever seen something that wasn’t a baby but thought it was a baby?”

“Like maybe you saw a pile of jackets in a stroller and you thought maybe it was a little person?”

NARAL CPC vid baby

NARAL asks the question because they claim that a pregnancy center incorrectly told a woman that her IUD was a baby, and they are mocking such a wrong diagnosis.

But- they fail to point out the numerous times an abortionist has a misdiagnosis or botches an abortion endangering women.

Like those so-called “dreaded complications” where an abortionist misses the BABY altogether and the child is born alive!

And, all those other kinds of pesky abortion “complications” NARAL ignores:

    Students for Life of America has discovered that a lawsuit was filed against Planned Parenthood Metropolitan located in Washington, D.C. on February 12, 2008.

    Emma Jean Butler is suing Planned Parenthood for $50 million dollars in damages. Butler took her daughter to the D.C. Planned Parenthood on September 7, 2006 to abort a child conceived in rape. During the abortion, the young girl sustained severe abdominal bleeding, severe vaginal injury, severe injury to the cervix, significant uterine perforation, and a small bowel tear. In addition, parts of the child were found inside young girl’s abdomen on September 8, 2006. Because of these injuries, the young girl will be infertile for the rest of her life.

    Planned Parenthood Metropolitan has denied the injuries suffered and the infertility of the young girl. In addition, they state in their answer that Butler’s claims are barred by the doctrines of informed consent and assumption of risk.

When a woman dies or is injured by abortion – its just a “complication of surgery” to abortion advocates….

And, as long as we are talking about those misdiagnoses – what about the woman who isn’t pregnant and the FOR PROFIT abortion clinic says she is?

Is NARAL speaking out about that?

NO WAY!

In that instance the woman is often put under anesthesia to have risky SURGERY performed one her!

But hey….nothing to see here….move along…we must send NARAL undercovers into the pregnancy centers that DON’T do surgery and where women NEVER die rather than dangerous abortion clinics.

Lest you think this type of misdiagnosis never happens? Think again:

abortion not pregnant

In early December, an Oklahoma abortion doctor was arrested after an undercover sting revealed that he was offering to perform abortions on women who were not pregnant.

Patel-Arrested-Dec-2014--300x231

News reports indicated at that time that undercover agents set up appointments with the 62-year-old abortionist where they say he administered ultrasounds and pregnancy tests and then told them they were pregnant, when they weren’t.

Funny I do not see a video by NARAL about the risk of abortion, the women who die now from legal abortion, the Gosnells and the Steven Chase Brighams and others who are shut down by health officials the numerous ambulance calls because of abortion complications, and on and on the list goes?

Wonder why?

Because, NARAL’s sole reason for existence is to advocate FOR abortion and they cannot do that if women have the legitimate “choice” to visit a pregnancy centers and receive FREE – yes FREE help!

Because….abortion has never been about CHOICE $$$ !!

In conclusion, I must say that for NARAL to send undercover supporters into pro-life pregnancy centers they must have a lot of time on their hands.

I mean…come NARAL, get a life already. (No pun intended.)
