Pro-life this Week: May 20, 2022

A 31-year-old woman has died following her use of an abortion pill (referred to as a chemical abortion) which led to deadly toxic shock. 

In April 2020, Sarah Dunn died after doctors and hospital staffers in the UK were unable to determine she suffered from sepsis following a chemical abortion. She died at the Blackpool Victoria Hospital after suffering a seizure because of untreated sepsis. 

LifeNews reports that a coroner’s report determined that Sarah Dunn would have lived had it not been for medical professionals’ “gross failures” to recognize symptoms of sepsis as a result of her abortion.

According to a report, Dunn aborted her child via chemical abortion in March 2020. The nurse in attendance made Dunn aware of the risk of sepsis, as chemical abortions lead to a great risk of infection due to pieces of the child being left behind in the mother’s womb. 

Following the abortion, Dunn noticed concerning symptoms such as excessive bleeding, clotting,Sa and extreme pain. However, the doctors she saw failed to recognize her sepsis and claim they were unaware she had a chemical abortion in the days prior. 

Sadly, death related to chemical abortions is nothing new. LifeNews reports that in the United States alone, 26 deaths and 4,000 serious complications following chemical abortions occurred between the year 2000 and 2018. However, this number ceased being reported by the FDA under President Obama. Now, with chemical abortions on the rise, this number is more than likely astronomically higher.

In March, we reported in Pro-Life this Week the staggering jump in the use of chemical abortions in recent years. 

According to the Guttmacher Institute’s census of all known abortions, in 2020, abortion-by-pill (chemical abortion) accounted for an estimated 54% of all abortions. This is up from 37% in 2017, the last time the report was conducted.  

As we stated in March, this jump in chemical abortions was largely brought on by the pandemic and the lifted FDA restrictions on mail-order abortion pills. However, evil entities like Planned Parenthood have been gearing up for the chemical abortion bomb for decades. 

With the collapse of Roe looming, abortion proponents are pushing chemical abortions more than ever. With headlines like USA Today’s, “Abortion by pill figures to rise if Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade,” it is clear that abortions are moving from Planned Parenthood facilities to pretty much anywhere. 

What is overwhelmingly clear is that abortion proponents could care less about the safety of women. Sarah Dunn is not the first woman to die following a chemical abortion, and with this intense push, she most likely won’t be the last. 

Women need real, safe, life-affirming options when faced with an unexpected pregnancy. Wouldn’t it be nice to live in a society that pushed for adoption, resources for single moms, increased childcare, and respect for mothers?

There is always hope. If Roe v. Wade is indeed overturned—and even if it isn’t—we will continue to work tirelessly for a world that is life-affirming and respects the humanity of every person.

Abortion distortion teaches that it is merciful to kill a preborn child in several instances. “The baby will be unloved.” “The baby will have a short life.” “The baby will suffer.” “The baby will be hungry and poor.”

The following animated short underscores the dignity of the human person, no matter his physical circumstances.  You don’t kill a preborn child because he will suffer and die. You give that child as long a life as possible because he will love and be loved.


Join the National Men’s March to End Abortion and Rally for Personhood on Saturday, June 11, 12-3 pm, in Tallahassee, FL.

There is a man connected to every abortion. Men are a big part of the problem, and it’s time for all men to take responsibility to be a big part of the solution. All men of goodwill are needed for the March and everyone else is needed for the Rally. This is truly a battle for the soul of our nation. We highly encourage fathers to march with sons, and entire families to join us at the Rally. Every life matters!

‘This is one of the most insane things I’ve ever read.’: Mother Admits She Would Kill Her Preborn Child to Prevent ‘White Evangelicals’ from Adopting Him

Twitter has always been a Wild West show when it comes to sharing opinions, especially when the matter at hand is the planned murder of preborn children.

A user by the name of Jo Luehmann claims that white Evangelicals aren’t worthy of adopting children who are not the same skin color as they are.

“Abortion is an act of love.”

Herein lies the reason so many mothers choose death, rather than a loving family, for their child. They think it is merciful to be dead rather than loved.

Adoption is emotional. Adoption is arduous. Adoption is awesome.
