Fetal DevelopmentWhat is it?

Abortion is an act of direct killing that takes the life of a tiny human being - a life that begins at conception/fertilization.  Abortion always claims a human being's life and is therefore never a good choice.  Legislation that recognizes this fundamental truth should be introduced and supported.

Surgical abortion is an action that surgically kills a baby while she is growing in her mother's womb.  Different methods can be used depending on the age of the baby. 

Chemical abortion is an action that chemically kills a baby either before or after she implants in her mother's womb.  Pre-implantation chemical abortion can be caused by hormonal birth control drugs and devices, including the pill and the morning-after pill while post-implantation chemical abortion is primarily caused by a drug regimen known as RU486, or Mifeprex.

What is my best option?

All methods of abortion have risks - both physical and emotional.  All of these methods kill babies, whether these babies are at the embryonic stage of life or the fetal stage of life.

Please know that there are people willing to help you, listen to your concerns, arrange good prenatal care for you and be supportive as you decide what is best for you and your baby.

Ella (ulipristal acetate)

Abortions in America are increasingly chemical in nature.  Numerous FDA-approved drugs have both pre- and post-implantation abortifacient effects, and their mechanisms of action are often made intentionally vague by the pharmaceutical companies that manufacture and market them.

Hormonal contraceptives such as Plan B or the Morning-after pill (levonorgestrel), the Pill, and the Patch can, at least some of the time, prevent the implantation in the uterine lining of the already-created embryonic baby.  This mechanism of action is termed a pre-implantation chemical abortion.

RU-486 or Mifeprex (mifepristone) blocks the hormone that helps develop the lining of the uterus during pregnancy (progesterone). This lining is the source of nutrition and protection for the implanted, developing baby. The tiny boy or girl is starved to death and then a second drug, misoprostol causes contractions so that the dead baby is expelled from the womb. This mechanism of action is termed a post-implantation chemical abortion.

In August 2010, the FDA approved the new drug Ella (ulipristal acetate) which has both pre- and post-implantation abortifacient mechanisms of action.  U.S-based Watson Pharmaceuticals acknowledges that, in addition to stopping or delaying ovulation, "ella may also work by preventing attachment to the uterus."  Marketed by Watson as "emergency contraception," Ella is recommended for use up to five days after intercourse.  But it has the same chemical make-up and mode of action as RU-486.  Like mifepristone, ulipristal acetate blocks progesterone and thus can kill an already implanted embryo.

There is no getting around the pharmacological facts:  Ella is an abortion drug.  According to Dr. Donna Harrison, who spoke on behalf of the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists at the FDA hearing on the Ella® New Drug Application in June of 2010, ulipristal is toxic to embryos at low doses.  "It is predictable that progesterone blockade will have profound embryolethal and developmental effects on the embryo fetus exposed to ulipristal," Dr. Harrison said.
