Women deserve to know that chemical abortions are not a safe and easy option; pro-life OB-GYN

By Lisa Bourne

The day after Roe v. Wade was overturned by the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization ruling Dr. Christina Francis’s phone blew up with text messages while she was doing rounds.

She thought it was people rejoicing over the fall of Roe, but friends, family and colleagues were all wondering whether what they were hearing was true – Would physicians now be unable to treat things like ectopic pregnancies and miscarriages in states that had banned abortions? Was it true that women would die now because they couldn’t receive life-saving medical care?

“I mean over and over and over all day long I was getting these text messages and was so frustrated by the amount of misinformation that was making the rounds,” Francis said.

Francis is an MD, CEO-Elect of the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians & Gynecologists (AAPLOG), and a provider with the Abortion Pill Rescue® Network (APRN). Her presentation was “Debunking the Myths of Chemical Abortion.”
