Mifeprex also known as RU-486 (buttercuppunch)

In an effort to ‘de-mystify’ the concept of abortion, Angie Jackson, a mother of one decided to tweet the process live.

When Angie’s IUD failed it was too late to take the morning-after pill, so her physician gave her the “Plan-B” RU-486 abortion pill, followed by 4 additional ones – a non-surgical option for early term pregnancies.

Although there have been other women that publicly reported the abortion process, Angie is the first that used the Twitter platform, relating her physical and emotional state of being.

“I’m doing this so other women know, ‘Hey, it’s not nearly as terrifying as I had myself worked up thinking it was.’ It’s just not that bad.” Said Angie Jackson.

RU-486, or Mifepristone, is a fairly new pharmaceutical abortive pill, that has not been researched in long-term effects. It has also shown to have rapid effect on psychotic major depression, where normal treatment did not work.

    Interesting that she feels the need to let everyone know that she is an atheist. What does that have to do with her abortion?

  2. Courtney says:

    The Plan B pill is NOT the same as RU-486 (The abortion pill). PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE stop giving out the wrong information, you are the reason that people are misinformed about things like this.

    She looks like a nutty drug addict someone should have aborted her!
    By the looks of her teeth she doesnt have health insurance either :-)

    @Diane, her blog and Twitter feed were originally on the subject of atheism, but the abortion issue arose midway and because she felt comfortable communicating with a wide audience on the controversial subject of atheism, it seemed to follow that openness about the abortion was appropriate. In both cases, atheism and abortion go against the tide of popular opinion, and many people find it much easier to clam up and reveal nothing for fear of ostracism. And in both cases, there are probably at least a few people you know in this situation, who just aren’t telling.

    Quick, your ignorance is showing!
    Where to start? Mifeprex, mifepristone, the abortion pill, is NOT Plan B. They are completely different drugs with completely different mechanisms. Plan B is progesterone and will not end an established pregnancy. Mifepristone is an antiprogestin, which does and is meant to terminate a pregnancy. They are not the same.
    And mifepristone is far from new. It has been approved and used in Europe since the 1980's, with the same regimen it is used in here. And, it has been approved here in the US for a decade during which time at least a million women have had safe, effective, and private access to abortion.
