One of the leading pro-life Christian activist organizations in the U.S has taken a look at complication reports from Ohio, where abortionists are required by law to report them. Operation Rescue spokeswoman Cheryl Sullenger tells AFN the latest documents reflect that 125 women suffered serious complications from using abortion pills. The largest complaint was incomplete abortions.
"If an abortion is incomplete, it can cause all kinds of problems for a woman," Sullenger explains. "It can cause infection, but it can also cause, primarily, hemorrhaging. It appears that at least five women hemorrhaged to the point where they required hospitalization and blood transfusions."
Three of the women whose chemical abortions failed continued their pregnancies to term and delivered their children.
"One woman in particular, she was given a first round of abortion pills that didn't work, and then she was given a second round of abortion pills that didn't work, and after that, she'd apparently had enough and decided that she did not want to pursue any other abortion and decided to carry her baby to term," the pro-lifer explains.
While 125 complications and eight failed abortions may not seem like many, Sullenger says the figures are likely higher. In her experience, some abortionists do not follow the law to report, and in other cases, the forms that are submitted to the state are often incomplete.
