Florida Abortion Clinic offers Sale on RU486 Abortions

By Dave Andrusko

This was passed along to me by a colleague at National Right to Life. I don’t know why a sale at a Florida abortion clinic should strike me the way it did, but… it did.

The “limited time offering” is for what the abortion clinic calls the “Abortion Pill Procedure,” otherwise known as RU486 abortions or “chemical abortions.” What’s the come-on?  “Limited Time Offering $125.00 Off Procedure Price.”

Aside from making the slaughter of unborn children cheaper seem like discounted tires, what else do you see?

For starters, the “procedure” takes place for babies from “3 to 14 weeks.”

That is pushing the outer envelope of when this is safe (for the mother) big time.

Also, that there is a different kind of time limit—none—on when women can have RU486 abortions. Because their abortionists are local (“and do not have to travel from out of town”), patients can be seen “24 hours a day, seven days a week.” Abortion mill, anyone?

What else? Speed! “Patients are able to be in and out of our office on Abortion Pill Clinic days within 2 to 3 hours. Most other facilities require patients to stay for as much as 4 to 8 hours.” Why? Presumably because “our physicians have been performing the Abortion Pill Procedure for over 20 years.” That would make them among the very, very earliest practitioners of RU486 abortions.

And business is booming! “In response to numerous requests, we are now providing Abortion Pill Services (RU 486, Mifeprex, Mifepristone) for medical, chemical and non-surgical abortion at several of our Florida locations.” It’s like striking oil.

There is a throwaway line about the pain and discomfort and just a hint that there may be a series of follow up visits, not just one. But, not to worry, “unparalleled experience.”

And, oh by the way, for those with second thoughts, “Patients may also elect to have a surgical procedure performed if they chose.” Plus, on the off-chance there are problems, “Patients must agree to have the surgical procedure performed in the event of retained pregnancy tissue, heavy vaginal bleeding, or signs of infection; all of which can occur with a surgical procedure.” Maybe not quite as “safe and simple” as women have been led to believe.

At the very end, the reader learns the “limited time” discount is limited to to abortions performed on babies 3-9 weeks old.  But wily entrepreneurs that they are, they offer  one last inducement: a  $50 off coupon if you have your abortion on Sunday!

Deceptive and morally tone-deaf to the very end.
