abortion pill birth control

 

The principal investigator of a study seeking to disprove the legitimacy of abortion pill reversal has direct ties — including financial ties — to abortion pill manufacturer Danco, which was formed by the eugenics-founded Population Council. This potential conflict of interest should demand scrutiny from the media — but instead, the media willingly questions abortion pill reversal based upon a single “expert” that receives compensation from Danco. This “expert” is Mitchell D. Creinin, a professor at University of California, Davis, sponsor of the study.

Mitchell Creinin has long history with abortion. He is an abortionist who was involved in clinical trials of RU-486 at Magee-Women’s Hospital Dept. of OB/GYN Pittsburgh, PA. He was the previous medical and lab director of Planned Parenthood of Western Pennsylvania, as described by Oxford University Press. He worked on an abortion training publication for the National Abortion Federation (NAF). He has served on the Board of Directors for the Association for Reproductive Health Professionals (ARHP). He is also listed among the advisory counsel for the early abortion training guide published by Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Health (ANSIRH), part of UCSF’s Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health.

As I detailed in a Twitter thread shown below, Creinin’s abortion history and connections to the abortion pill’s manufacturer are deep and worth mentioning. This calls into question the validity of his study into abortion pill reversal. Creinin has financial incentive to make sure the abortion pill remains in demand, as do the study’s sponsors. This is a blatant conflict of interest.

Person behind “Clinical Trial” to attempt to disprove abortion pill reversal (APR) – connected to abortion and takes money from abortion pill manufacturer- can you say CONFLICT? https://www.liveaction.org/news/whos-who-abortion-pill-reversal-study/

Abortion advocates want broad access to the abortion pill, and are pushing studies funded by people who stand to gain financially from abortion pill sales.

These abortion “studies” are tied together by $$ from / Danco support from

There’s no proof “abortion reversals” are real. This study could end the debate.

Four states already mandate that doctors advise women their abortions can be reversed.

As shown in the Twitter thread above, Creinin serves as consultant for abortion pill (Mifeprex) manufacturer, Danco, and receives consulting fees and compensation from the company. In addition, he receives honorarium from Danco. Creinin also provides “third-party telephone consults” for Danco. Creinin’s study sponsor is financed by the Packard Foundation, one of Danco’s major financial investors.

If this all weren’t enough to show a major conflict of interest, Creinin is also a founding member of the Society of Family Planning, which is collaborating on the study. This organization’s mission is to support abortion research, it, too, is funded by the Packard Foundation. Creinin is also the deputy editor of SFP’s official journalContraceptionPackard-funded studies in this journal unsurprisingly support the pro-abortion cause, claiming self-managed abortion is safe, and urging the undoing of current FDA safety standards restricting dispensation of the abortion pill (known as REMS). The Journal’s editorial board has been stacked with abortion industry insiders, including a National Abortion Federation board member and members of the Population Council (responsible for bringing the abortion pill into the US and forming DANCO, the manufacturer of the pill).  Obviously, the journal is pro-abortion.

Creinin is also the principal investigator in another clinical trial run abortionist/researcher Daniel Grossman (professor at University of California, San Francisco) on pharmacy dispension of the abortion pill.

Despite the fact that this conflict exists between the study’s “investigator” and Danco, media outlets ignore it. Such was the case over at Vice, which published the latest attack against abortion pill reversal, highlighting Creinin’s study without drawing one line to his connections to the abortion pill’s manufacturer. Vice headlined their hit piece: “THERE’S NO PROOF ‘ABORTION REVERSALS’ ARE REAL. THIS STUDY COULD END THE DEBATE,” in spite of the fact that Creinin’s study is only at the recruiting stage, and hasn’t reached any conclusions yet.

Or has it?

Creinin makes no secret that he doesn’t believe in abortion pill reversal  — and his profitable relationship with Danco should give any critically thinking person reason to question the motivations behind this push to “test” the effectiveness of the abortion pill reversal protocol.

‘So painful. So much blood’: Women share abortion pill horrors on YouTube

Posted in Abortion pill, Abortion Pill Horrors, Baby saved from abortion with tags , , , , , , on January 15, 2019 by saynsumthn

abortion pill

Despite potential for dangerous outcomes, abortion advocates are pushing “at home” or “mail order” abortions. FDA reports indicate that almost two dozen women who took abortion pills have died as a result, and a thousand have been hospitalized. And now, some women are sharing their testimonies on YouTube, giving a glimpse into their mindset, the physical and emotional results of taking the abortion pill, and the reality of abortion.

One inside view comes from a video entitled, “My Abortion Experience as a Freshman | Abortion Pill.”  In comments to the video, a woman named Brittany claims she obtained abortion pills from Planned Parenthood as a freshman in college.

Brittany described her abortion experience in the video in some disturbing ways, even though she claims she does not regret her abortion:

  • “I did not realize how much pain it was going to be.”
  • “At first it felt like really bad cramps…it just started getting worse and worse….”
  • “The pain of it was just ridiculous – I completely regret not taking the pain meds…. I was in so much pain.”
  • “I couldn’t walk – I couldn’t talk….”

While Brittany admitted to emotional and physical struggles when she discovered her pregnancy, she also detailed her emotional state after the abortion:

  • “I was so depressed.”
  • “It was so bad that I wasn’t eating. My nails turned blue…. None of my clothes fit me because I lost so mush weight…. I was failing all my classes…. It was just a really bad time.”
  • “At one point – like – I felt the embryo come out…. I just picked it up and flushed it, I didn’t know what else to do….”

Women on college campus need real solutions and support, not pills they take all alone. And yet, there is a movement to force publicly funded colleges and universities in California to offer the abortion pill on campus to pregnant women. SB320, as the bill was dubbed, was vetoed by the state’s pro-abortion Governor Jerry Brown, but lawmakers are still trying to get it passed.

The abortion pill process is explained by Dr. Anthony Levatino in the video below:

 

READ: Hey, Teen Vogue, these 15 women say taking the abortion pill is nothing like having a period

Another 20-year-old YouTuber, who claims that she was on “birth control” for some time, said that she paid Planned Parenthood $350 for the abortion pill when she became pregnant, but her baby survived. “You get no refund,” if it fails, she emphasized. The three-part series is titled, “My Miracle Baby After Taking Abortion Pill.”

“At this point” of taking the abortion pill, she says, “the baby is seven weeks old.” She reasoned at the time, “It’s probably not a baby yet, it’s just a mass of cells, it’s nothing.” Which, of course, isn’t true:

She begins by emotionally introducing her 5 month old son: “I didn’t know that I wanted him at the time I got pregnant and I made a rash decision to get the abortion pill.” According to her story, after she took the second pill in the abortion pill regimen, she immediately began to bleed:

It was within ten minutes I was bleeding… It was so painful… it was more like contractions… And it was a bloody horror show…. It was so much blood…. I was passing blood clots the size of golf balls that could literally fit in your hand…. It was a lot of blood and a lot of clots and it was very traumatizing. And I was in a lot of pain. And instantly, I regretted my decision. And instantly I felt so guilty….

She adds, “… I bled for 2 weeks after taking the pills. I didn’t go back for the ultrasound because I was sure it had worked….”

Her testimony also states, “I became really really depressed…. It got so bad to the point that I didn’t trust myself being alone…. I didn’t feel safe being by myself because of the guilt I was having…. I just felt so bad….”

She claims that a few months later she discovered she was still pregnant.

“Moral of the story- it didn’t work, thank God,” she says. “And, he’s here and he’s healthy and he’s happy…. I didn’t think I would be able to care for a baby…. This just goes to show that you can do it, you can be a mom and you can have a baby…. Babies are the greatest thing ever. He has brought me so much happiness, so much love to my life, and I could not picture my life any way without him…. I love him more than life itself. I cannot even imagine if the pill would have worked, and I am so thankful that it didn’t. I am so thankful that I got a second chance at being a mom….”

“Babies… are just pure love,” she adds. “He really did change my life for the better.”
