Doctors Without Borders Provides Online Abortion Instructions

On the anniversary of the enactment of President Trump's Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance policy, Doctors Without Borders- an international medical organization working in humanitarian settings- launched a new online "course" for chemical abortion via abortion-inducing pills. According to a news report, the course "takes under an hour to complete. It consists of five lessons, available in five languages, that cover abortion with pills - which can be used for pregnancies of up to 22 weeks - and the standards of practice through each stage of abortion care provision."
Doctors Without Borders' representative states"Having an abortion doesn't necessarily mean going through a surgery or a medical procedure anymore. An abortion can be provided safely with pills... a combination of pills is taken that causes the uterus to contract and push out the pregnancy in a process that is similar to miscarriage...An abortion with pills is relatively simple to provide - even in the most remote and low-resource settings."
At the same time, the organization is running Facebook ads requesting donations so it can "purchase medication to prevent and treat fatal bleeding" following childbirth. The leading medication for treatment and prevention of post partum hemorrhage is misoprostol which is also the leading medication to contract the uterus and expel the preborn child from the womb. In another Facebook ad it requests financial support to "provide the medical care new mothers need to stay healthy and safe as they bring a new life into the world"- life-affirming work that contrasts starkly with providing on-line instruction on how to end the life of an unborn child up to 22 weeks of pregnancy not to mention the consequences to the life and health of the mother. 22 weeks of pregnancy has become the point of viability at which premature babies can survive with the right treatment and care according to the British Association of Perinatal Medicine
