Ru-486 abortions, often referred to as medical abortions, require women to take two pills at different times. The first pill is to end the child’s life by blocking receptors of progesterone, a key hormone for maintaining pregnancy, and the second pill is to cause contractions that expel the child. However, the results of the pill can be reversed with additional medication, if taken within 72 hours. To reverse RU-486, go to Abortion Pill Reversal or call 877-558-0333 as soon as possible.

Rape & Abortion

Abortions for cases of pregnancy from rape account for approximately 1% of the 1.1 million abortions occurring annually. AFL opposes abortion in cases of rape, as victims often report feeling more traumatized or violated by the abortion than the rape, and children who were conceived through rape should not be killed based on how they were conceived.

Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion business in the US & receives $500 million dollars annually in tax dollars. The organization was founded by Margaret Sanger, a proponent of birth control as a means of population control. There are also reports that Planned Parenthood supported sex selection abortions, ignored statutory rape laws, & harvested baby body parts, as revealed in 2015 undercover videos.

Partial Birth Abortion

This procedure is used from 16 weeks through the end of the pregnancy. The abortionist uses forceps to pull the legs through the birth canal, delivering the baby’s feet, legs, and body. Scissors are then used to puncture the base of the back of the baby’s head and a suction device is inserted to suction out the baby’s brain so the skull will easily collapse and the dead child can be removed. This Supreme Court case Gonzales v. Carhart in 2007 made this procedure illegal in the United States.

Down Syndrome

Trisonmy 21, also known as Down Syndrome, is a genetic disorder stemming from a full or partial 3rd copy of the 21st chromosome. People with Down Syndrome usually have low muscle tone & developmental delays. With special programs & therapies children can achieve normal milestones. Adults with Down Syndrome can also lead normal lives & often report being generally happy. Unfortunately, where there is a prenatal diagnosis of Down Syndrome, the abortion rate is over 90%.
