The Abortion Pill Patient Statistics

  • Chemical abortion accounted for 43% of all abortions in the United States in 2014.
  • By 2030 chemical abortion is on trend to exceed surgical abortions in America. Sadly, with the onset of COVID-19, this benchmark could be passed well before 2030.
  • Since its approval, the abortion pill has killed 3.7 million preborn human beings, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration reports the deaths of at least 24 women.
  • Researchers found the complication rate to be 5.2% for women who took the abortion pill compared to 1.3% for women who underwent first-trimester surgical abortions.
  • Coincidentally, major complications occurred for the abortion pill at a rate of .31% while major complications occurred in first-trimester surgical abortions at a rate of .16%.
  • In addition to these overwhelming statistics, there are many physical, emotional, and spiritual side effects that women aren’t prepared for before making the decision to end the life of their preborn child.

Medical Abortion Physical Side Effects

The abortion pill, Mifepristone, carries 4-5 more complications for infection, undiagnosed ectopic pregnancy, failure to abort (women can still remain pregnant when abortion pill fails), and bleeding which will ultimately lead to emergent surgical intervention.

The abortion pill patient has a 4-5x likelihood of complications of hemorrhage, which can last 2 weeks or more

In addition, the abortion pill is an immunosuppressive drug that can increase the risks of decreasing the body’s ability to defend itself against many pathogens-such as COVID-19.

Medical Abortion Emotional and Spiritual Side Effects

For some women, the emotional and spiritual consequences of medical abortion can start right away with immediate regret calling abortion pill reversal hotlines from the parking lot of the abortion clinic or within 24 hours of taking the first pill.

For other women, they find themselves full of anger, anxiety, and depression and are triggered years down the road only to discover it was a past abortion that they repressed emotionally as a coping mechanism.
