Abortion supporters lift up the "doctor-patient relationship" as something sacred which should not be violated by silly things like "informed consent" and other laws. It is also used to lend an air of credibility and legitimacy to the procedure of abortion.
Yet we have known for some time that the much-touted abortion "doctor-patient relationship" is a farce in South Dakota. Most women don't see their "doctor" until a few minutes prior to their abortion, and some are already under anesthesia before the doctor shows up.
And after the abortion, women are quickly shuffled out the door and on their own.
Well, according to Iowa Right to Life, this "doctor-patient relationship" is getting to be even more of a joke when it comes to abortions.
It seems Planned Parenthood of Greater Iowa is now doing to do abortions by webcam. And you don't even need an appointment!
From the Iowa Right to Life press release:
Planned Parenthood of Greater Iowa is now offering no appointment, walk-in abortions at its clinics without a physician on site. How will they do this? By offering dangerous RU 486 chemical abortions at all of their locations, with a Des Moines-based abortionist consulting by webcam.
The press release also says PP won't exactly be following recommended "medical" procedure with this, either.
Planned Parenthood does not follow FDA Protocol for RU 486. Planned Parenthood gives women a cheaper combination of the pills in an RU 486 abortion, against the recommendations of the Food and Drug Administration, which makes these abortions more profitable for the abortion group and more dangerous for women.
Planned Parenthood gives women a single RU 486 pill, instead of three recommended by the FDA, then ups the dosage of the less expensive prostaglandin, Misoprostol, which expels the baby.
Planned Parenthood also cuts back the number of appointments the FDA recommends for an RU 486 abortion from three to two, which also increases Planned Parenthood’s profits by reducing office and staffing expenses.
For an organization which claims to care about women, and is already making $1 billion ($337 million of it from you, the taxpayer), they certainly seem to be concerned with cutting corners.
And if something goes wrong with this chemical abortion? The woman is apparently on her own--again.
The facade of "caring" from the abortion industry really is pretty thin, and getting thinner all the time.
It's really about turning a profit at the expense of women and the lives of their children.
