Operation Rescue has requested a full investigation into what appears to be a failure by Ohio abortion facilities to accurately report complications experienced by women who took the abortion pill — not only in 2020, but going back several years.
Ohio Department of Health abortion statistics show that from 2015 through 2019, the use of abortion drugs increased by nearly 93 percent, yet the number of reported complications decreased since 2017.
Abortion complications should have increased proportionately with the explosion in abortion drug use. This inconsistency indicates a likely issue of compliance with abortion complication reporting regulations on the part of Ohio abortion facilities.
“Reporting of abortion drug complications is obviously inconsistent in Ohio,” said Newman. “The Department of Health should be monitoring the facilities to ensure they are complying with all reporting laws, but from what we can see, there appears to be a serious lapse in oversight in this area, and that is a disservice to the public, which has the right to know the truth about abortion dangers.”
