Twin Babies Survive Planned Parenthood Medical Abortion

I have this patient’s permission to share her story. She had an unplanned pregnancy. She went to Planned Parenthood in Knoxville (since the one in Nashville still was in its period of “quality improvement” and wasn’t seeing abortion patients) and had her ultrasound. They asked her if she wanted to know the details and she said yes.

She asked if there was a heartbeat. She was told, at an age between 7-8 weeks, that “there is cardiac activity but it’s too early to call it a heartbeat.”

Problem #1: that is a load of hogwash. If the heart’s activity is visible, there is a heartbeat. There is no medical literature that says otherwise.

Why would they handle it that way? Because acknowledging in layman’s terms that there is a heartbeat makes the patient less likely to go through with the abortion. So, once again, they are willing to lie to women to get their money.

Problem #2: they didn’t tell her that she was having twins. Either their sonographer was incompetent, or they once again lied since they know that a woman who finds out that she’s having twins may have a harder time with the thought of aborting two babies instead of one.

Problem#3: and this really isn’t a problem—at least not for us. The abortion pill didn’t work. The patient is now very happy that it didn’t work. Why didn’t it work? Probably because the extra progesterone from the fact that there are two babies overcame the progesterone blockade that the abortion pill tries to create.

Today, she’s more than 12 weeks [pregnant] and is very happy. Both babies and mom as well, are going to be fine.

And once again, we see that Planned Parenthood lies, and demonstrates that their clinical acumen is sadly lacking when it comes to diagnostic studies in women’s health care.
