i) Manual Vacuum Aspiration (MVA) and the Abortion Pill (different from a Morning-after Pill) are early abortion methods (up to10 weeks). MVA takes 15 minutes. A hand-held instrument detaches the womb’s lining, removing tissue and the gestational sac (holding the baby).
ii) The Abortion Pill (Mifepristone) causes ‘medical abortion’. Progesterone action is blocked: the uterus lining breaks down (the baby starves). 48 hrs later, a Misoprostol pill is taken. The uterus contracts, crushes and expels the baby (dead in 97% of cases). Time off work is not usually needed.
Other early and late abortion methods exist. Methotrexate disables the baby’s life support systems. Prostaglandins in the amniotic sac (an ‘instillation’ method) cause early delivery, crushing the fœtus to death. Salt poisoning kills from dehydration, convulsions and brain haemorrhaging, with unimaginable torture. The fœtus’ skin is burned and blistered, forming a hideous mess. At least 113 ‘instillation’ abortions (which include saline) were performed in the US in 2013. Showing gruesome abortion pictures is criticised. Where a mentality of no-limits, wild savagery is indicated, in getting rid of unwanted babies, clinical examination both of this mentality and of how it is met by society is warranted.
iii)‘Morning-after Pills’. Levonelle contains levonorgestrel, a synthetic version of the hormone progesterone. ellaOne contains ulipristal acetate. The drugs are available without prescription.
Manufacturers and providers claim the pills are not abortifacient, despite the fact that the complex mechanisms of action (MOAs) of these are, however, not well known. Companies refer to ‘Emergency Contraception’ – downplaying whether they are life-ending or life–preventing.
iiia) Levonelle for Emergency Contraception (LNG-EC) - likely an Abortifacient
The International Consortium for Emergency Contraception (ICEC) and the International Federation of Gynecology & Obstetrics (FIGO) assert that “inhibition or delay of ovulation is LNG-EC pills’ principal and possibly only MOA.” The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG) have repeated the claim. The FDA, however, says LNG-EC mainly prevents ovulation or fertilisation (by altering tubal transport of sperm and/or ova) but may also inhibit implantation (by altering the endometrium). Authorities often try to create fake facts.
Laboratory studies report that there are two main possibilities for LNG, given successfully before ovulation. Either a fully functional egg is expelled or pre-ovulatory (fatal) drug-induced post-fertilisation damage occurs in the embryo. LNG-EC administration, during the pre-ovulatory days, cannot prevent ovulation or fertilisation with a dominant pre-fertilisation MOA, but can be demonstrated to impair luteal function, adversely affecting the survival of the embryo.
iiib) ellaOne for Emergency Contraception (UPA-EC) – abortifacient Properties
In studies of the fallopian tube, it is unclear how UPA may affect the fertilisation and transport of a fertilised egg – and so embryo implantation. Attention needs to be paid to why the efficacy of the drug in preventing pregnancy is so very high, even when taken close to ovulation.
A very small minority of workers argue, if unprotected sex take place, eg 12 hrs after ovulation, and the administration of UPA 120 hrs later prevents pregnancy, then UPA, as well as delaying ovulation, may have abortifacient properties, not yet researched.
