What is webcam abortion?
A pregnant woman enters a Planned Parenthood or another abortion facility where there is no doctor physically present.
Non-medical staff perform a transvaginal ultrasound and the image is scanned to the abortionist.If he or she determines the pregnancy is 70 days or less, they briefly talk with the woman via webcam.
The doctor remotely activates a drawer that opens and provides the woman with two bottles of abortion-inducing drugs.
The doctor then watches as the first set of pills is taken. This blocks hormones to the baby, which results in death.
The second set of abortion pills are taken two days later at home.
The contractions begin, and barring complications, she will expel the deceased baby, alone.
Where is webcam abortion?
*With overwhelming support in 2015 from the Idaho House, Senate and Governor, a webcam abortion ban was signed into law. Following pushback from Planned Parenthood and its allies, the state entered into a stipulation agreement in 2017 to repeal the existing law. Immediately following the repeal, webcam abortions are now happening in Boise, Meridian and Twin Falls.
**Webcam abortion began in Iowa in 2007, the first state in the nation to sell them. After many years of working to stop webcam abortion there, the Iowa Board of Medicine voted, 7-2, to ban them in 2013. Planned Parenthood and allies sued the Board of Medicine, ultimately gaining victory at the Iowa Supreme Court. That Court overturned the Board’s rule, allowing dangerous webcam abortions to continue, unfettered, across Iowa. They continue to this day.
History of webcam abortion
What seemed unthinkable only a few years ago, is happening now.
First came webcam abortion.
Who could’ve imagined that a woman could get abortion-inducing pills without ever seeing a doctor?
An abortion at home?
Not likely, we thought.
But then-Planned Parenthood of Greater Iowa’s CEO, Jill June, was forced to deal with a shortage of doctors willing to travel to do abortions.
For years, the organization struggled to find abortionists.
Of course, it didn’t help that Iowa weather would often interfere.
Another issue was a high no-show rate for abortion appointments.
So, how does one sell abortions without the mandatory person capable of providing them?
June decided to eliminate the doctor, the one who was required, yet not really available.
One thing Planned Parenthood excels at is thinking outside the box.
While watching a crime show, something like CSI, June came up with the idea of just leaving the abortionist in her office in Des Moines.
From there, the client could be seen through a Skype-like connection.
The non-medical office staff would perform a trans-vaginal ultrasound and scan the image to the doctor.
If the doctor determined that the pregnancy is less that seventy days old, he/she could push a button on her screen which would remotely open a drawer in front of the woman.
Watching via webcam, the doctor would see the mother take the first set of pills.
The first medication is Mifeprex which blocks hormones to the baby.
Within hours, the baby dies, starved of crucial nutrients.
Immediately after taking the pills, the woman leaves the office with the second set of pills.
Taken one to two days later, this medication, Misoprostol, starts the contractions.
If the abortion is to be considered a success, by Planned Parenthood standards, a dead baby is soon delivered.
A medication or chemical abortion is difficult. It’s bloody.
And the woman is typically by herself.
While this type of abortion has been done for years, removing the doctor from the equation, greatly increases the risk.
But with their usual determination to be on the cutting edge, Planned Parenthood plowed ahead with little thought of any concerns.
Staff was worried about the liability of doing this new procedure with no medical staff on site.
What about complications?
But all concerns fell on deaf ears.
Webcam abortions were soon up and running.
At least 22 women have died following a medication abortion.*
*Causes of Death Include:
- Hemorrhaging to death
- Massive heart attack
- Ruptured ectopic pregnancy
- Clostridium sordelli, a serious bacterial infection
- Excessive bleeding, sometimes requiring blood transfusion
- Chest pain
- Severe cramping
- High fever
- Severe infection
Published by the FDA in December 2017, that at least:
*4,185 reports of “adverse events” or complications
* 1,041 women have been hospitalized
* 598 have experienced such severe blood loss, they have required transfusions
* 411 women reported infections, with 69 of them classified as severe
* 58 cases of ectopic pregnancies, which the pills do not treat
Deadly complications from medication abortions via webcam can be easily overlooked.
The problem with diagnosing serious problems related to medication abortions is that many of the adverse effects mask themselves as “typical” side-effects.
So, if a woman is experiencing “heavy bleeding”, it’s up to her, alone at home, to determine if she’s hemorrhaging at a life-threatening level.
Further investigation of these symptoms could save women’s lives.
It’s important to note that the FDA report is not conclusive. Required reporting on abortion complications is not existent in most states and women are not going to self-report themselves to the FDA. It is impossible for us to know how many women have been harmed.
The future of webcam abortion
It is difficult to even imagine what could be worse than webcam abortion. But fast forward a few years.
We’ve hit another new low.
Believe it or not, there is now an “abortion app” which can be downloaded onto a smartphone.
From her phone, a woman can contact an abortion facility and have a brief consult.
With very little fanfare, the abortion facility mails the abortion medications to the woman.
The cost of ordering these pills is “up to $1,000” per Planned Parenthood’s own website.
Considering there are almost no overhead costs, this is a huge moneymaker for the abortion giant.
This heinous method of abortion is currently available in Hawaii, Oregon, Washington State, New York and Maine.
It will spread to other states.
It is the goal of Planned Parenthood, of the entire abortion industry, to have unlimited abortions, funded by taxpayers, available to every woman in every state, at virtually a moment’s notice.
