“Abortion is safe?” BEWARE: read the fine print!

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.

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.

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.

Buffett Billions Padding “Charitable” Abortion Advocacy

Posted in Abortion, Bill Gates, Eugenics, Hispanic, Planned Parenthood, Population Control, Warren Buffet, Warren Buffit with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on July 9, 2010 by saynsumthn

By Peter J. Smith

OMAHA, Nebraska, July 8, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – For the last number of years American billionaire Warren Buffett, 79, has gradually been giving away his estimated $47 billion fortune – and much of it is going to support the work of abortion activists worldwide.

The Bloomberg news agency reports that Buffett’s annual gift this year to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation – which supports population control efforts around the globe – was figured at $1.6 billion in Class B stock of Berkshire Hathaway, Buffett’s Omaha-based company. The amount is a 28 percent increase from last year, due to the fact that the value of Buffett’s Berkshire holdings have improved overall while the rest of the economy has tanked. Berkshire’s stock value rose 35 percent on the New York Stock Exchange over the past twelve months, and Berkshire profits rose 61 percent in 2009.

In 2006, Buffett endowed the Gates Foundation with 10 million Berkshire Class B shares, valued at approximately $37 billion dollars. Buffett’s 2010 donation constitutes part of the annual installment plan of 5 percent of pledged stocks to the foundation’s trust fund. The stock gives the Gates Foundation a steady source of income (the pay-out target over the coming decade is $3 billion a year) from which it can fund various other charities – which have included population control groups such as Planned Parenthood and others.

Just last month, the Gates Foundation announced they would be investing $1.5 billion in the cause of maternal health over the next 5 years – with a special emphasis on spreading “family planning” in the third world.

Bloomberg reports that other abortion advocacy groups also received tens of millions for their work promoting abortion at home and abroad through the Susan Thompson Buffett Foundation, a charity Buffet set up in honor of his first wife, who died in 2005. That foundation distributed more than $2 million to the Abortion Access Project Inc., over $2 million to Catholics for Choice, a group dedicated to undermining the Catholic Church’s teaching on the sanctity of life, and more than $40 million to Ipas, a group that promotes the expansion of legal abortion in Latin and Central America, and in third world countries.

In fact, Ipas was implicated in 2007 as a participant in the alleged cover-up of the rape of a nine-year-old young girl named “Rosita,” by her step-father. Marta Maria Blandon, then Ipas Director for Central America, was accused of helping Francisco Fletes flee Costa Rica with his wife and “Rosita” in 2003, knowing full well that the Fletes was a suspect in the investigation. However, Blandon’s priority and that of her accomplices in the international abortion movement, was using the nine-year old’s pregnancy as a “hard case” by which they could undermine the region’s pro-life laws.

Ipas also intervened in the battle over legalizing abortion in Mexico City with false statistics, claiming that 1527 women had died from complications due to illegal abortions between the years 1990 and 2005. However pro-life advocates pointed out that the health department’s own statistics, as well as those of other agencies, contradicted that number.

Bloomberg reports that Buffett intends to give away 99 percent of his personal fortune before his death. He has pledged 85 percent of his holdings in Berkshire to the Gates Foundation, the Susan Thompson Buffett Foundation, the Howard G. Buffett Foundation, the Sherwood Foundation and the NoVo Foundation.
