Study: Pill System Didn't Raise IA Abortions



Bookmark and Share

A study says the number of abortions in Iowa hasn't risen since Planned Parenthood began a remote-control abortion pill distribution method in 2008.
 
A study released Thursday by the American Journal of Public Health examined the number of abortions in the two years before and after the telemedicine abortions began in Iowa. The system lets women visit clinics and take pills administered by doctors after video conferences.
 
Proponents say the system is safe, legal and extends abortion access to rural areas. Opponents say the system isn't safe because doctors have little in-person oversight and because the women can suffer complications after leaving the clinics with some of the drugs necessary to complete the abortions at their homes.
