The biggest hurtle we face to protecting babies right now are dangerous illegal chemical abortion pills being purchased and shipped into Louisiana from online businesses. Please take a few minutes to watch the video below to learn about this from our Director of Education, Alex Seghers.
To begin, it’s imperative to answer the following questions:
What are chemical abortions?
Chemical abortions (or medication abortion) utilize the deadly RU-496 regimen of Mifeprex (mifepristone), which weakens or kills the baby through starvation. Then, a second drug, Misoprostol, is taken to induce early labor for the deceased unborn child.
Are chemical abortions dangerous?
Women receiving these drugs through the mail without physician oversight can cause a variety of problems. They have a much higher complication rate than surgical abortion. And without physician instruction, women can receive these drugs without even confirmation of a positive pregnancy test, which can lead to hemorrhaging or even death.
What is the chemical abortion reversal process?
For those seeking to reverse the effects of the abortion pill, the goal is to start the protocol within 24 hours of taking the first abortion pill, mifepristone, also known as RU-486. However, there have been many successful reversals when treatment was started within 72 hours of taking the first abortion pill.
What does Louisiana law say about chemical abortions?
Telemedicine abortion is illegal in Louisiana. These pills cannot be prescribed, sold, or distributed, but they are illegally being sold to women and shipped from out-of-state or even out-of-country distributors.

We need as much help as possible to connect women to local pregnancy centers before they purchase these abortion pills. We hope you can promote our www.FindHelpLA.com website where a woman can find a pregnancy center in her community.
