Chemical abortion has made news headlines through 2021, from the pro-abortion exploitation of the coronavirus public health declaration to push for loosened restrictions, the FDA's reduction of its own safety standards for the abortion pill, and beyond. 

Also referred to as medical abortion, medication abortion, the abortion pill, RU-486, at-home abortion, DIY abortion, or self-managed abortion, the chemical abortion regimen continues to grow in prevalence and now comprises close to half of all abortions performed in the United States. We can expect it will continue to be in the news in the coming year.

Numerous stories concerning chemical abortion were among the most read Pregnancy Help News articles in 2021. Below is just a sampling.

We will continue to work to keep readers informed regarding this controversial abortion method.

May God bless us all in the New Year.
