House Votes to De-Fund Planned Parenthood's Telemed Abortions
The House of Representatives today voted for an amendment to HR 2112, the Agriculture Appropriations bill, to ensure no funds authorized under the bill can be used to pay for the dangerous RU 486 abortion drug under a telemedicine grant section. Telemed, or webcam, abortions are those in which a woman gets the abortion drug only after a webcam conversation with the abortion practitioner, who may be out of state. The woman is denied the in-person consultation with a physician that the Food and Drug Administration recommends, especially due to the dangerous nature of the drug as it has killed dozens of women worldwide and injured 1,100 women in the United States alone as of 2006 FDA figures. The consultation helps determine whether or not the woman may suffer from an ectopic pregnancy — as usage of the abortion drug RU 486 in such instances is life-threatening.
