Indiana must act to block vending machine abortions
May 26, 2010
Just when you think you’ve seen it all, news come from Iowa that Planed Parenthood is now offering what many are calling “vending machine” abortions in which abortionists instruct women on using the dangerous RU-486 abortion drug by video conference.
According to news reports, the remote abortionist addresses women by video, then a button is pushed and a drawer opens that contains the drugs.
Not surprisingly, the state of Iowa has launched an investigation to determine the legality and safety of the entire vending machine abortion process.
Indiana needs to get ahead of the curve of this one. According to reports, Planned Parenthood has incorporated within its 2015 strategic plan a desire to make vending machine abortions available at every Planned Parenthood office in the nation. If so, Indiana is on the firing line.
Are we really prepared as a society to plunge into death by remote control? Women and babies deserve a lot better than that.
