State abortion data is confirming that chemical abortion use is on the rise, as unregulated virtual abortion pill dispensaries also increase since the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) decision to weaken safety regulations (REMS) for the abortion pill mifepristone.

Data from Planned Parenthood’s former “special affiliate,” the Guttmacher Institute, revealed that by 2020, abortion pills made up over half of all abortions (53%). Accumulative data published by the FDA reveals that the abortion pill has ended the lives of 5.6 million babies in the U.S. since its approval in 2000. But, according to a recent analysis published by the Charlotte Lozier Institute (CLI), “Of the 31 states that have released 2021 abortion statistics, 29 reported chemical abortion data for 2020 and 2021.Among these 29 states, chemical abortions jumped by eight percent from 2020 to 2021, representing 57 percent of these states’ total abortions in 2021. In 23 states, chemical abortions composed half or more of all abortions.”

“Twenty-three states reported that chemical abortions increased from 2020. Connecticut had the largest percentage increase (74 percent), while Florida had the largest absolute increase (4,624 chemical abortions). In 2021, twelve states reported increases in chemical abortions of more than 10 percent, with four of those states reporting an increase of more than 30 percent from 2020,” CLI wrote.

“Only six states reported a decrease in chemical abortions from 2020. Arkansas had the largest percentage decrease (31 percent), and Texas had the largest absolute decrease (2,002 abortions). Both Maine and Texas reported decreases in abortion overall,” CLI added, noting, “The trend toward increasing use of chemical abortion generally is likely to continue, as 2021 was the first full year without the Food and Drug Administration’s enforcement of its requirement for mifepristone to be dispensed to women in person.”

Since the Supreme Court’s ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization overturning the Roe v. Wade decision last June, facilities offering chemical abortions and abortion pill dispensaries also increased — and prescribers continue to flout approved FDA gestational limits.

Virtual Clinics

WND is now on Trump’s Truth Social! Follow us @WNDNews

In 2022, the Abortion Care Network (ACN) claimed that, “only 31 states and Washington DC allow clinics to provide abortion via telemedicine…” A June 2023 issue brief published by the pro-abortion Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Health (ANSIRH) claimed that “In 2020, there were no virtual clinics providing medication abortion,” but by 2021, “32 virtual clinics (4% of 773 facilities offering medication abortion) began providing care via telehealth in 22 states and DC.”

“By 2022, 69 virtual clinics (9% of 789 facilities offering medication abortion) provided this care in 23 states and DC. Virtual clinics were largely concentrated in the Northeast and West, while state bans were enacted in the Southeast and Midwest prohibiting any type of abortion, including telehealth medication abortion,” ANSIRH claimed.

A 2023 study recently published in Obstetrics and Gynecology, ACOG’s Green Journal, found that 28 states “currently have statewide or state virtual abortion clinics.” The study, which investigated “current abortion access in the United States based on geographic location and to forecast access according to the landscape of abortion care in the year after the Dobbs v Jackson Women’s Health Organization decision,” also contained multiple errors where data written in text conflicted with data included in the study’s graph (see below).

It’s unclear how the ACOG’ journal’s reviewers missed these inconsistencies — but when it comes to abortion, in some instances submissions that agree with abortion receive far less scrutiny.

“Virtual clinics may be fully independent virtual clinics with no brick-and mortar affiliation or those affiliated with a physical clinic,” authors Maeve Alterio, BS, Robin Von Davies, MSMA, Michele Tobias, PhD, Arthur Koehl, BA, Jennifer H. Tang, MD, MSCR, and Dawn Kopp, MD, MPH wrote.

The graph indicates that so-called virtual clinics exist in additional states such as: Alaska (1), California (14), Colorado (11), Connecticut (6), Delaware (4), Hawaii (4), Illinois (11), Iowa (1), Kansas (1), Massachusetts (8), Maine (8), Maryland (9), Michigan (3), Minnesota (9), Montana (4), Nevada (3), New Hampshire (2), New Jersey (7), New Mexico (11), New York (9), Oregon (5), Pennsylvania (2), Rhode Island (6), Vermont (5), Virginia (9), Washington (8), Wyoming (1), and Washington D.C. (5).

Many chemical abortion pill dispensaries have admitted they spend little to no time with clients and several are openly selling potentially dangerous and poor quality abortion drugs to minors.

For example, DKT International, which sells millions of abortion pills globally, may be shipping abortion drugs into the U.S. manufactured by the Delhi-based Synokem Pharmaceuticals Ltd, which is alleged to have a “shoddy quality record,” according to DKT’s USA affiliate (FemHealthUSA) is Carafem, a U.S. chain offering chemical abortion pill consultations in several states. For years, the international chemical abortion pill dispensary Aid Access sold DKT’s abortion pill kit. Meanwhile, the chemical abortion pill dispensaries Choices Rising and Choix, Inc. sell to children as young as 15.

The shift in virtual clinics versus brick and mortar facilities can be attributed to the FDA’s decision to allow mail-order chemical abortion pills. Today, virtually all that is needed to set up a chemical abortion pill business is a computer, phone, and the ability to write a prescription — which is why one abortion provider recently called the selling of abortion pills by mail a “great business model.”

IMPORTANT NOTE TO WND READERS: Today’s ruling elites champion policies every previous generation of Americans would have regarded as outright evil. At the top of that list would be the supremely radioactive issue – illuminated by the hit summer film “Sound of Freedom” – of the widespread trafficking and sexual slavery of children, as well as the shocking prevalence of pedophiles in the United States of America. Indeed, the U.S. is the largest market for child sexual abuse in the world.

According to Tim Ballard, who has led many missions rescuing sex-trafficked children around the world, the Biden administration actually ENABLES AND PROMOTES the trafficking and sexual slavery of children with its horrendous border policies, its push for early sexualization of children, championing children’s “right to consent” on everything including mutilating transgender surgeries, and so on.

“Pedophiles are sitting back right now,” says Ballard, “and going, ‘We’ve been pushing this agenda for decades, and now we don’t have to push any more, because the left is taking care of it for us’ – IN AMERICA!”

Ballard’s concerns are confirmed by Tara Lee Rodas, a Health and Human Services whistleblower who recently testified before Congress that under Joe Biden, “THE U.S. GOVERNMENT HAS BECOME THE MIDDLEMAN IN A LARGE-SCALE, MULTI-BILLION-DOLLAR CHILD TRAFFICKING OPERATION.”

But that’s just the beginning. The whole, secret criminal mega-enterprise of child sex trafficking and the global elites’ affinity for pedophilia is exposed as never before in the August issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, in a groundbreaking issue titled “THE NEW AMERICAN SLAVE TRADE: How the Biden regime enables and promotes child sex trafficking in the U.S.A.” WHISTLEBLOWER is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
