RU-486 Now Safe? Feminist researcher still doesn’t think so

first_imgNational Right to Life 21 November 2013It caused a bit of a stir in 1991 when three “pro-choice” feminists came out with a book warning of the dangers of the chemical abortifacient RU-486. “RU486: Misconception, Myths and Morals,” written by Renate Klein, a biologist and social scientist from Deakin University in Melbourne, Australia, Janice Raymond, a professor of women’s studies from the University of Amherst (Massachusetts), and Lynette Dumble, a member of the University of Melbourne’s Department of Surgery, won awards and received some momentary coverage in the press. But ultimately, the pro-abortion establishment pushed back and plowed ahead, ignoring the warnings.Approved in the U.S., the chemical abortion method is now legally on the market in at least 50 countries. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which approved RU-486 in September of 2000, says that 1.5 million women had used the drug as of April 2011.…Over the past several years, there have been modifications of dosages, the addition of antibiotics to some regimens, new warnings have been added to the label. Does any of this satisfy Renate Klein, one of the original feminist critics?Hardly. Writing in a ninety-page preface to a new edition of RU486: Misconceptions, Myths and Morals published earlier this year, far from taking anything back, after seeing twenty plus years of RU-486 on the market, Klein is as convinced as ever that “a down-to-earth rational best practice approach that truly respects women’s health and well being could not, in good faith, endorse this fraught abortion method.” Klein repeats here what she has published elsewhere–that she sees a ”RU 486/PG abortion as an unsafe, second-rate abortion method with significant problems”http://www.nationalrighttolifenews.org/news/2013/11/ru-486-now-safe-feminist-researcher-who-opposed-abortion-pill-in-1991-book-still-doesnt-think-so-part-one-of-two/#.UpamZ9T2-Ulhttp://www.nationalrighttolifenews.org/news/2013/11/ru-486-now-safefeminist-researcher-who-opposed-abortion-pill-in-1991-book-still-doesnt-think-so-part-two-of-two/#.UpanWNT2-Umlast_img read more

UN report promotes children’s ‘right’ to abortion without notifying parents

first_imgLifeSiteNews 28 November 2014A recent report from the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) says that laws against abortion, sex work, drugs, and same-sex relationships impinge upon the freedoms and potential of young people.In the report, which was heavily criticized by C-FAM and the Population Research Institute’s Steven Mosher, UNFPA also says that young people worldwide — including minors — should have unrestricted freedom to engage in contraceptive sexual intercourse and abortion without parental involvement.“Emergency contraception is something that adolescents particularly need because they use relatively ineffective methods,” the report states. “Another systematic literature review by Denno et al. (2012) shows that the most effective out-of-facility approaches to reaching youth with services include condom distribution via street outreach and promotion of over-the-counter access to emergency contraception.”Perhaps of most importance to pro-life advocates is the UNFPA’s promotion of abortion.“Age of consent laws that require adolescents to get the permission of a parent or guardian to use a service, or that limit access to people under a certain age, are barriers to information and services for adolescents’ barriers to information and services for adolescents,” argued the report. “Despite being signatories to treaties and agreements that call for adolescents to have access to sexual and reproductive health care, many countries have laws or policies that do not allow for unmarried adolescents or minors to have access to contraceptives.”https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/un-report-promotes-childrens-right-to-abortion-without-notifying-parentslast_img read more
