INDEPENDENT CONSERVATIVE VOICE OF UPSTATE SOUTH CAROLINA

INDEPENDENT CONSERVATIVE VOICE OF
UPSTATE SOUTH CAROLINA

SAN ANTONIO, Texas -- The Justice Foundation has filed an Amici brief with the US Supreme Court representing 2,743 women who have experienced tragic consequences of abortions, some using the chemical abortion pills.  These women hurt by abortion want to help the Court render a just decision in the Chemical Abortion Pill (mifepristone/misoprostol) case. This Women Injured by Abortion Brief  provides a unique woman-only view of the horrors, damage, and/or emergency room visits that have already occurred.  This harm to women will exponentially increase if these pills are allowed to become less regulated and more widely-distributed.

The women represented in Women Injured By Abortion -- including Martin Luther King’s niece, Alveda King, and Pro-Life Activist and former Planned Parenthood Director Abby Johnson – are asking the highest court in the land to stop all distribution of the reckless Chemical Abortion Pills; reverse the FDA approval of the drug; and protect women from the lies, injuries and predatory practices of the abortion industry.  More reports come in daily.

Here is a small sampling of some of the witness accounts in the brief:

One woman who had the chemical abortion pill says, "Within 30 minutes of inserting the Misoprostol, I began to hemorrhage and pass clots. I experienced intense cramping. I had never experienced pain so severe. Now that I have had children, I realize that I was experiencing labor-like contractions. I began to vomit from the pain. I was passing clots the size of lemons. I remember passing my baby. I scooped my baby up in my hands and for a moment, wasn’t sure what to do. No one had prepared me for that moment. I didn’t expect to recognize my baby. It felt wrong to flush my baby down the toilet, but I didn’t know what else to do. In the end, I dropped my child in the toilet, closed my eyes, and flushed.”  Abby Johnson, p. 6 of the Women Injured By Abortion Brief.

“It was one of the most horrific experiences of my life. I was told by the abortion clinic that it wasn’t a big deal, that it was easy and private. . . . The bleeding and the pain started almost immediately and it was intense. The pain lasted for two days and I felt like I was in full-blown labor. I was alone in one of my bathrooms in the apartment. . . .”      – K.L., p. 8 of the Women Injured By Abortion Brief.

“[E]xpect heavier than normal bleeding and cramping . . . [T]hey gave me a written prescription for Hydrocodone . . . and I began to question just how ‘heavy’ this ‘period’ was about to be . . . As I waited . . . at . . . Walmart . . . for my hydrocodone, I felt the rush of blood. . . . I . . . look[ed] down at my jeans and was shocked to see . . . I was covered in blood; from the top of the inseam down to my knees. . . . Tears began to flood my eyes . . . horror and embarrassment. . . . I couldn’t imagine this was. . . a heavier than normal period, . . . my shock . . . turn[ed] into sorrow when I . . . found the sac with my tiny baby in it. . . . I held her for a moment before folding up the toilet paper and setting it into the feminine products bin. . . .”  from A.C., p. 20 of the Women Injured By Abortion Brief.

Another woman says, “I took the second pill while laying on my bed, expecting some mild menstrual cramps as they had told me.  That’s not what it was at all – I experienced very intense, painful cramps as my body expelled my baby’s body into the toilet.  My baby was disposed of in a toilet.  A toilet.  I wish so much now that I would’ve taken the remains of that precious little body and buried it.” – C., p. 9 and 10 of the Women Injured By Abortion Brief. In yet another example, one of the Women Injured By Abortion’s attorneys Allan E. Parker, J.D., President and Founder of The Justice Foundation, says:  “I remember my first call from a woman who had a chemical abortion pill, sobbing uncontrollably, she said ‘They lied to me!  They said it wasn’t a baby!  This is a baby!  I can see the hands and legs! Can I bury my baby in the backyard?’
