Marie Stopes International Suspends Abortion after Unannounced CQC Government Inspection Yields Safety Concerns

Late Friday [19 Aug 2016], it was announced that leading United Kingdom abortion agency Marie Stopes International will suspend a significant percent of abortion procedures following a surprise inspection by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), the independent regulator of health and social care in England. The CQC and the National Health Service (NHS) announced that the abortion agency must suspend surgical abortion procedures for certain groups of women after a CQC regulator raised concerns regarding “the provider’s corporate and clinical governance arrangements and patient safety protocols in specific areas.” Following the surprise inspection, Marie Stopes had suspended abortion for women under the age of 18 as well as “vulnerable groups of women.” Additional suspensions have occurred for abortions under general anesthetic or conscious sedation as well as all surgical abortions in their Norwich abortion clinic. The UK’s The Telegraph newspaper reports that staff competence was a primary reason for the CQC’s concerns. According to The Telegraph, “The CQC said it could not be sure that staff had adequate levels of training and competence to administer sedatives and general anaesthetic. It also said it had immediate concerns about issues of consent.” The government has also informed Marie Stopes International that they will not be given approval for more clinics until the CQC is satisfied that its concerns have been fully addressed. National medical director at NHS England, Prof. Sir Bruce Keogh, stated: “This will be an anxious time for those women affected and we are taking immediate action to ensure everybody involved has access to the appropriate confidential advice and services.” It is encouraging news that the CQC and the...

Planned Parenthood & Entire Abortion Industry Killed Women By Misusing the Chemical Abortion Pill, So Now FDA Relaxes Protocol Requirements Even More

The Planned Parenthood abortion corporation has long ignored FDA rules and subjected women to dangerous abortions by giving them the abortion drug outside the guidelines the FDA had put in place. The abortion drug is responsible for the deaths of dozens of women worldwide, including several in the United States alone, and it has injured at least 1,100 women in the United States alone as of 2006 figures from the Food and Drug Administration. But that hasn’t stopped the agency from deciding today to change the rules and guidelines the abortion industry once had to [were supposed to] follow to protect women’s health. The dangerous RU 486 abortion drug has nearly claimed the lives of two million unborn children in the United States since its approval at the end of the Clinton administration. In addition to the number of unborn children whose lives have been lost to the abortion drug, women have suffered as well, as a Planned Parenthood study admits at least one woman is seriously injured from the abortion pill daily. Because of the high failure rate and the risks involved with RU-486 in later pregnancies, the FDA originally limited approval for use only in the first 49 days from the start of a woman’s last menstrual period. Planned Parenthood, by its own admission, ignores this limitation. Now, the Food and Drug Administration announced on Wednesday, that it had caved to Planned Parenthood’s demands and altered the approved use of Mifeprex, (also known as Mifepristone or RU486), to come in line with off-label protocols used by Planned Parenthood and other abortion businesses. The FDA has announced that...
