Ban dangerous RU-486 abortion drug in Canada! (Sign the petition)

  • 33

On the evening of July 29, Health Canada confirmed that it has approved the controversial and dangerous abortion drug RU-486 for use in Canada. The chemical abortion regime is expected to become available sometime in 2016.

Heavy bleeding, nausea, vomiting, and painful uterine contractions are common side-effects of the two-drug combo, which requires three trips to the doctor's office over a two week period.

As of 2011, fourteen U.S. women had died after taking RU-486 and a total of 2,207 reported adverse effects after using the drug, according to a report from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. In Canada, clinical trials were halted in 2001 following the death of one woman.

Pro-life leaders say they are stunned by the news of the decision to expand abortion in a country where abortion on demand at taxpayer expense is already the norm.

“As if we haven’t got enough ways in Canada to kill preborn children; we’ve just legalized another one,” John Hof President of United for Life BC told LifeSiteNews.

“I think its another dark day for Canada with the approval of that dangerous human pesticide,” commented Campaign Life Coalition (CLC) President Jim Hughes.
