REPUBLISHED FROM LIFE DYNAMICS BLOG:

The nation’s top seller of abortions, Planned Parenthood said they are “glad” a murder charge has been dropped against a woman who killed her unborn child using an abortion pill she purchased online.

Kenlissia Jones

23-year-old Kenlissa Jones allegedly took the abortion pill, Cytotec, after she purchased it off the internet to abort he five-and-a-half-month-old baby boy.

The drug, also known as Misoprostol, is promoted by abortion advocates in home abortion remedies online.

According to reports, Jones got a neighbor to take her to the hospital, but she delivered the baby boy in the car on the way.

Dougherty County police say that Jones’ baby boy died after about half an hour at the hospital and originally charged Jones with malice murder and possession of a dangerous drug.

Now, according to the AP, Dougherty County District Attorney Greg Edwards has dropped the murder charge and is pursuing a drug possession count instead.

He said Jones still faces a misdemeanor charge of possessing a dangerous drug, which Georgia law defines as any drug requiring a prescription.

In a tweet posted just after the decision became public, Planned Parenthood wrote, “We’re glad to see Kenlissia’s murder charges dropped—but alarmed at what can happen if safe abortion is inaccessible.”

As previously reported, abortion supporters originally came to Jones’ defense in a similar way as they rushed to defend Purvi Patel, an Indiana woman who was sentenced to 20 years in prison on feticide and neglect charges after she took abortion pills she had ordered to abort her roughly thirty (30) week pregnancy.

While Planned Parenthood says they are “alarmed at what can happen if safe abortion is inaccessible” they are blocking measures to tell women that they can reverse the affects of abortion pills to keep their babies.

The abortion business has recently filed a federal lawsuit to stop a new law in Arkansas which requires abortionists to notify their patients that the abortion pill can be reversed.

A Georgia woman who allegedly took an abortion pill she purchased off the internet to abort a five-and-a-half-month-old baby boy has been charged in the child’s death and abortion advocates have come to her defense.

According to reports published by a local media outlet, police say that 23-year-old Kenlissa Jones purchased Cytotec, from a source in Canada.

The drug, also known as Misoprostol, is promoted by abortion advocates in home abortion remedies online.

Reports indicate that Jones got a neighbor to take her to the hospital, but she delivered the baby boy in the car on the way.

Dougherty County police say that Jones’ baby boy died after about half an hour at the hospital and have now charged Jones with malice murder and possession of a dangerous drug.

Kenlissia Jones Riggins

Jones’ brother, Rico Riggins, told WALB that he did not know his sister was pregnant.

“Once she took those pills, from the way I’m understanding it, she was in a world of hurt for a while,” Riggins said.

Riggins said his family is grieving and in need of prayers.

We lost what would have been a nephew for me. And everything. And then my sister,” Jones’ brother said.

Dougherty County District Attorney Greg Edwards said the case will likely go before a grand jury, because Georgia and federal laws will need to be explored.

According to Georgia law:

    No abortion is authorized or shall be performed if the probable gestational age of the unborn child has been determined in accordance with Code Section 31-9B-2 to be 20 weeks or more unless the pregnancy is diagnosed as medically futile, as such term is defined in Code Section 31-9B-1, or in reasonable medical judgment the abortion is necessary to avert the death of the pregnant woman or avert serious risk of substantial and irreversible physical impairment of a major bodily function of the pregnant woman. O.C.G.A. § 16-12-141 (2014)

This is not the first time a woman has been charged after ordering and consuming drugs to self-induce an abortion.

Earlier this year a 33-year-old Indiana woman was sentenced to 20 years in prison on feticide and neglect charges after she took abortion pills she had ordered to abort her roughly thirty (30) week pregnancy.

Purvi Patel Charged with Baby Death9-0132-0831-0eae5eefacd9  Thumb

The woman, Purvi Patel then threw the almost fully developed baby into a dumpster behind a restaurant her family owns where the infant died.

Abortion advocates wasted no time coming to Purvi’s defense. (read here.)

Life Dynamics president, Mark Crutcher called Patel’s defenders, savages, saying that abortion advocates never met a baby they didn’t want to kill.

Crutcher pointed out that had Patel’s baby been found in the dumpster of an abortion clinic, no charges would have been filed, “The fact is, if the body of this child had been found in the dumpster of an abortion clinic instead of the dumpster of a restaurant this arrest would have never happened and Patel would just be another enlightened woman exercising her constitutional right to choose,” he stated at the time of Patel’s arrest.

Now, abortion advocates are rushing to the aid of Kenlissa.

On twitter they have set up the twitter hashtag #justiceforKenlissa to defend Kenlissa’ actions.

No page has been established to grieve her dead son, though.

To repeat Crutcher’s statement, abortion advocates never met a baby they didn’t want to kill.

Pro-abortion computer game to encourage Mexican women to abort themselves

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.

notebaja ipas

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“.

RU 486 companion drug blamed in 2001 death

Posted in Abortion, Abortion death, RU-486 with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 10, 2010 by saynsumthn

By Ed Langlois Jan 12,2001

Of the Sentinel

A just-settled Portland lawsuit has called into question the safety of a drug being used in concert with the abortion compound RU 486.

The 1997 death of 34-year-old Margaret O’Connor is being blamed on a dose of misoprostol, an ulcer medication that doctors have for several years used to induce labor in expectant mothers.

The undisclosed settlement, achieved last month after a two-year trial in Multnomah County Circuit Court, went to Michael O’Connor of Portland. On Jan. 28, 1997, O’Connor lost his wife an hour after she gave birth to their third child at Legacy Emanuel Hospital in Portland.

The Food and Drug Administration in September approved the use of RU 486, and doctors have been using Cytotec as a companion drug to complete the chemical abortion process.

But FDA figures show 30 cases of rupture of the uterus related to the use of misoprostol, known by its brand name Cytotec. In eight cases, the child died even though abortion was not the intent.

In the Portland case, the mother died.

Peggy O’Connor was admitted to Emanuel for what Dr. Barry Davis says appeared to be an ‘uneventful’ labor. But Dr. Davis did note that O’Connor was anxious to have the baby and had consulted with another physician, Dr. Joseph Weick, about using Cytotec to hurry the birth and avert complications. The drug had been used in Legacy delivery rooms for less than a year. Dr. Weick said he saw no problem and Dr. Davis ordered the dose.

Powerful contractions set in and O’Connor delivered the child. About 20 minutes later, the placenta came. O’Connor, who had had a child previously via cesarean section, then began bleeding profusely. She went into shock, and surgical measures to save her life failed.

An autopsy revealed that the placenta had broken off too abruptly and that amniotic fluid entered Peggy O’Connor’s bloodstream.

‘The pro-life community has always warned that RU 486 abortions are deadly not only to the unborn but to the women,’ says Gayle Atteberry, executive director of Oregon Right to Life. ‘This tragically proves us right.’

Oregon was one of the states where doctors tested RU 486 and developed protocol for its use.

In a pre-trial deposition, the O’Connors’ attorney Keith Tichenor asked Dr. Davis if he had warned his patient of the risks involved with Cytotec before he administered it.

Tichenor: ‘Did you tell her anything about whether it was used as an abortifacient?’

Davis: ‘No.’

Tichenor: ‘Did you tell her anything about warnings on the package inserts about not using it if you were pregnant because of the abortifacient property?’

Davis: ‘No.’

Attorneys for Dr. Davis, Legacy Health System and Monsanto argued that the harm to Margaret O’Connor was ‘not foreseeable.’

Cytotec is manufactured by G.D. Searle, a drug company owned by chemical giant Monsanto. The FDA approved Cytotec as an ulcer medication in 1988.

The drug literature from the late 1980s warns, in bold type, against the use of Cytotec by pregnant women.

But medical experts are split on the use of the drug during labor.

The O’Connor case showed that some strong proponents of its use are at Portland’s Oregon Health Sciences University. It was there, at a 1995 continuing education seminar, that Dr. Davis was told that the ulcer drug Cytotec was a good labor quickener.

But doctors elsewhere argue strongly against the drug, citing its tendency to cause the strong contractions and even kill the child in the process of being born.

Dr. Marsden Wagner, a Washington, D.C., physician who once worked with the World Health Organization, relays reports from Medford that obstetricians there are using Cytotec to try to fit deliveries into a daytime schedule.

‘We can’t just throw drugs at people in an uncontrolled way,’ Dr. Wagner writes in a recent article in the magazine Midwifery Today.

‘These women and babies paid a very big price because their practitioners were willing to use a very powerful drug before it has been approved by the FDA for this purpose and before it was adequately evaluated by prospective, controlled research.’

Dr. Charles Lockwood, chairman of obstetrical practices for the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, says that Cytotec is the ‘agent of choice’ for inducing labor in the United States.

During the 12-year debate that resulted in the approval of protocol for RU 486, many physicians argued that women should be able to take Cytotec at home to make the abortion process cheaper and quicker.

‘Not being able to use misoprostol at home is a barrier to entry to providing medical abortion services,’ Dr. Suzanne Poppema, Seattle-based president of the National Abortion Federation, said in March 1999.

So far, the FDA has approved Cytotec only for use in treating peptic ulcers, but did recommend it to cause miscarriage after use of RU 486. When doctors use the drug to induce labor they are engaging in a common, legal but risky practice called ‘off-label use.’

In August 2000, Searle sent an update letter from its Skokie, Ill., office to doctors warning that Cytotec was approved only for treating ulcers and posed dangers to women if used to induce labor or abortions.

‘Serious adverse events reported following off-label use of Cytotec in pregnant women include maternal or fetal death,’ the Searle letter reported.

Just last week, two doctors from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists chided Searle for the attempted dissuasion.

The editorial, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, charged Searle with letting a fear of abortion politics and potential boycotts override science.

‘It is a sad state of affairs when a pharmaceutical company attempts to restrict the use of a drug although a large body of scientific evidence indicates that the drug has unique benefits and is safe for a large group of patients,’ wrote Drs. Ralph Hale and Stanley Zinberg. ‘Women in the United States should not be deprived of access to misoprostol.’

Other labor-induction drugs are more dangerous and more expensive, the doctors argued.

Though 30 cases may not seem like an epidemic, observers say Cytotec could pose a greater risk now that RU 486 is approved.

Doses for causing abortion will be higher than those used to speed labor.

Even in smaller doses, the drug causes overwhelmingly powerful contractions in some women and can bring on the kind of rupture and bleeding that killed Margaret O’Connor.
‘I’m not sure this kind of thing is isolated, or if it is, whether it will stay isolated,’ says the O’Connors’ Portland attorney Keith Tichenor.

Unborn Baby Murder Hearing

Originally printed at http://www.wbng.com/news/local/93462479.html
May 11, 2010

Sayre, PA (WBNG Binghamton) A Steuben County man heads to court to face charges of killing his unborn child in Bradford County.

A woman claims her former boyfriend admitted to causing her to have a miscarriage.

39-year-old Orbin Tercero of Bath is charged with first degree murder of an unborn child.

On Tuesday he was at district court in Sayre for preliminary hearings.

Police say Tercero used a pill to force his former girlfriend to miscarry at her home in Sayre.

The woman said Tercero wanted her to have an abortion.

He was engaged to another woman at the time.

Three weeks into her pregnancy, the victim decided she wanted to keep the child.

She believed they reconciled their differences and they continued their relationship.

But in February, the prosecution claims Tercero inserted a pill into the victim during an intimate moment, without her knowledge.

The victim and the defendant’s ex-fiance said in testimony Tercero admitted to the crime.

District Attorney Dan Barrett says they have a lot of work to get done before Tercero is arraigned in June.

“We’ll be doing a great deal more work,” said Dan Barrett, Bradford County District Attorney. “There’s some other witnesses that need to be interviewed and checked out.”
Barrett says they don’t expect a trial to begin any earlier than July.

Defense attorneys are trying to prove there is no concrete evidence the drug, cytotec, is what caused the miscarriage.

If convicted, Tercero could be sentenced to life in prison.
