I realize that this was a drug for chemo that can help heal, and it is not just to cause abortions. I also realize that it was a prescription drug, not an over-the-counter, so this should never have happened. BUT...mistakes happen. This case of a pregnant woman accidentally getting this drug serves as a reminder that pills like the "morning after" and various other drugs developed to cause abortions and that serve no medical benefit should be* illegal* for the safety of the rest of us. Legalized chemical abortions through pills from pharmacies presents a danger to* every* pregnant woman who wants to keep her baby.
The government has made some drugs, like the acne drug acutane, very difficult for doctors to even prescribe because of the serious birth defects that they can cause. I don't know the specifics of how this particular chemo drug is prescribed, but drugs that have serious consequences to developing humans should be regulated very carefully.
Prayers for this woman and her developing child. :gopray:
You should realize that the Morning After Pill is nothing more than high dose birth control pills. It will not cause an abortion, it will only help to delay ovulation if it is about to happen.
The drug in question here, is actually now used not only for cancer patients but also to save pregnant women's lives when they discover that she has a pregnancy in her fallopian tube.
While we may not agree with the Birth Control pill it's not going to stop being sold.
There are many dangerous drugs out there to pregnant ladies, including over the counter ones. There are numerous drugs that if any of us mistakenly took them could do us serious harm or kill us.
It's a sad human error that occurred.
