Recent claims – published by ABC News and Slate, among others—have asserted that “telemed abortions” are safe. In addition to the inherent dangers of medical abortions (and specifically RU-486), there are a number of glaring flaws with these claims. Take, for example, ABC News’ use of a “study” by Ibis Reproductive Health (Ibis) that “shows […]
On Monday, Gallup published the results of a recent poll demonstrating that “[l]arge majorities of Americans favor the broad intent of several types of abortion restriction laws that are now common in many states, but have mixed or negative reactions to others.” On one level, the results affirmed what AUL has been saying for years: […]
In her article, “House Committee Votes to Reinstate Global Gag Rule (Again) and Other Misogynistic Amendments,” Ms. Jodi Jacobson suggests that “today’s GOP and Tea Parties” will ignore “evidence” in order to “pass a law undermining women’s access to healthcare.” However, Ms. Jacobson’s article—full of rhetoric and lacking “evidence”—grossly mischaracterizes the Mexico City Policy’s purpose […]

Though noting one so-called “emergency contraceptive,” Plan B, can prevent implantation of a human embryo, NPR fails to discuss the other FDA […]
