UN-WHO: Abortion at All Cost

UN-WHO: Abortion at All Cost

July 27, 2005 0 By Rosina

The WHO considers the abortion pill RU-486 – “the human pesticide” – essential medicine, despite the deaths it causes. Reproductive health is abortion. Chemical abortion as a Millennium Development Goal. The complicity of the gynecologist’s federations.

The medical journal British Medical Journal, announced on July 9 last, that the World Health Organization included among the “essential drugs” the abortion pill RU-486, whose active principle is the drug mifepristone. The WHO resolution states that this drug, which has been called the “human pesticide”, must be available to all doctors working in developing countries.

The combination of mifepristone and another drug, misoprostol, for WHO is an alternative to “avoid unsafe abortions.” These drugs act by detaching the already implanted embryo from the woman’s uterus and causing contractions to facilitate the expulsion of the unborn child. The UN unit clarifies that its recommendation “is for countries where abortion is legally permitted and culturally acceptable.” (Misoprostol, is an anti-ulcer drug, which in pregnant women produces contractions that facilitate abortion, one of its trade names is Cytotec, although it has very serious contraindications – uterine rupture, for example -, it is sold online as element for “home abortion,” in countries where abortion is legally prohibited).

Even if this were not done and the sale of these items was controlled, clarify that: “it is for countries where it is legally permitted …”, it is nothing more than a new disguise of the true intentions of the WHO -to reach the liberalization of abortion in the world in 2015 at the latest-, or a diplomatic martingale to avoid the opposition of some governments and/or to conform to those who, in order not to contrast with the new international order, reassure their consciences with “diplomatic modes to say”.

Recommendation of the World Assembly

The inclusion of the human pesticide in the list of “basic medicines” was made on the recommendation of the last World Health Assembly, held in May in Geneva, which brings together all the ministers of health of the world. We recall that the Assembly was chaired by the Spanish Health Minister, the abortionist Elena Salgado, who repeated the abortionist speech about the number of maternal deaths in the world due to pregnancy and childbirth, figures that, by the way, are unprovable. Among those deaths do not seem to count those that cause contraceptives and chemical abortifacients.

At the same time on July 20, the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), warned that the use of mifepristone or the combination of it with misoprostol can be deadly for women. In the United States, where it is sold by the Danco laboratory under the name of Mifeprex,. there have already been five proven cases of death, and many more are calculated from which there is no record. In addition, the NGO Concerned Women for America (CWA), reports on its website more than 600 cases of serious complications.

Therefore, July 22, the United States Congress began an investigation because of the reported deaths, of course, the Danko laboratory denies any relationship between the human pesticide and the death of its users, and accuses the competition that wants impose other similar products. In five days since the parliamentary investigation began, more deaths have been reported, not only in the USA but also in Canada.

In the 5 years that it has been used legally, the RU was used in hundreds of thousands of abortions, causing only in the USA, the death of 460,000 unborn children.

Included in the Goals or Millennium Development Goals

In the letter addressed in April to Lee Jong-Wook, Director-General of WHO, a group of experts read: “The WHO Reproductive Health Strategy, approved by the World Health Assembly in 2004, identifies the elimination of unsafe abortions as one of its five priorities. The key document published by WHO in 2003, Safe Abortion: Technology Guidance and Health Systems Policy, recognizes mifepristone with misoprostol as ‘highly effective, safe and acceptable for early abortions in the first trimester of pregnancy’ along with the aspiration as ‘the preferred surgical techniques’ for abortions up to 12 completed weeks of pregnancy. ”

“Almost every country in the world has some legal indications of abortion. The inclusion of mifepristone and misoprostol in the WHO list can facilitate the availability of these drugs, allowing national health systems to provide and access safe and legal medical care to save women’s lives. Achieving the Millennium Goals for the reduction of maternal mortality (goal 3) depends on access to safe abortion methods. ”

“That is why we urge to approve the recommendations of the Committee of Experts. Dr. Anibal Faundes, chairman of the Committee on Sexual and Reproductive Rights of FIGO and FLASOG – Latin American Federation of Societies of Gynecology and Obstetrics – could talk more with you or your staff about this matter.
