RU-486 and Reality
In the year 2000, the U.S. government approved the use of the abortion pill RU-486. Abortion rights' advocates hailed the ruling as an important breakthrough claiming that this pill would cut down on surgically performed abortions and provide an "easier" early-abortion method. Right-to-life groups passionately opposed the measure and petitioned lawmakers to attach restrictions and conditions to its use.
Since this time, Danco Laboratories, the sole distributor of RU-486 in the U.S., has reported fatalities and illnesses related to the pill and there is a movement in Congress to legislate stricter guidelines for its distribution. Even though there are complicated legal and social pressures at work here, let's keep the following realities concerning RU-486 clearly in view:
Reality #1 - RU-486 causes death.
Whether it's by surgical means or through a chemically produced reaction (RU-486 causes the embryo to detach from the uterus lining) the end result is the same - a child is killed. Giving a procedure a sanitized name doesn't change the reality of what is happening and in this case, the death of a person is what happens.
Reality #2 - RU-486 causes more abortions.
This procedure will make abortions easier, cheaper, faster, and more private - all good reasons that will push women to choose this path when faced with an unwanted pregnancy. All this talk about freedom of choice will never change the REAL outcome of this move - women will be hurt when they choose to destroy their babies.
Reality #3 - RU-486 causes judgment.
The big selling point with this new drug is that its effects are minimal thus guarding a women's privacy. Few, if any people need to know. Of course we know that in reality, God knows all things (even the secrets of our hearts) and will judge us accordingly.
The approval and usage of RU-486 in the USA has been touted as a victory for women and reproductive rights. But the victory belongs to Satan who has seduced a portion of this nation into rejoicing over the fact that it will now be easier to kill the unborn - a chilling reality indeed.
