It is with heavy hearts that we report to you that earlier this week it was announced that Health Canada has approved RU-486 (the controversial abortion pill). Unless reversed this could dramatically increase Canada's annual abortion rate, which is already conservatively estimated at 100,000 lives a year.
In a statement issued by MP David Anderson on July 30th, he explained that the RU-486, "...is not only lethal to preborn infants, but is associated with 19 adult deaths in 11 years. While RU-486 is promoted as a safe and effective abortifacient, it is neither. It is a dangerous combination of drugs that destroys a woman’s tissues in the womb in order to kill her preborn child. As uterine tissue is chemically degraded, the child dies. The second round of drugs is equally aggressive, causing massive muscle spasms and uterine contractions, resulting in the expulsion of the fetus and bleeding." He then went onto state, "I am extremely disappointed that Health Canada would see this as acceptable to Canadians."
We believe that likely all of us would agree with MP David Anderson's statements. Click here to read his entire statement.
