Pro-life group Operation Rescue managed to obtain copies of more than 100 Report of RU-486 Event forms. The forms outlined serious reactions caused by the abortifacient drug mifepristone, formerly called RU-486. The documents, which encompassed the period from January 2021 through April 2022, were submitted to the State Medical Board of Ohio by eight abortion clinics operating in the Buckeye State.
The complications outlined in the reporting forms included five hospitalizations of women, all in 2021. The five hospitalized women all received blood transfusions after hemorrhaging.
Incomplete and failed abortions made up a large portion of the reported complications. A total of 81 women reported incomplete abortions, where tissue that may have contained a deceased baby was retained in the body. Meanwhile, 31 women reported failed abortions in which the baby was not killed by mifepristone and continued to grow.
The women who had incomplete chemical abortions experienced “pain, cramps and bleeding.” Most of them underwent either suction aspiration or a dilation and curettage procedure, with only three women given a second dose of the abortifacient drug.

Meanwhile, the 31 women who reported failed chemical abortions followed up with surgical abortion procedures to end the life of the child in their womb. Two women whose babies made it into the second trimester of pregnancy opted to undergo the risky dilation and evacuation procedure to finish their abortions.
Despite the grim revelations in the reporting forms, there were also slivers of hope in them. Three women whose babies survived chemical abortions decided to keep their babies instead of following through with the recommended surgical abortions.
Operation Rescue spots possible corruption in Ohio abortion clinics
The pro-life group outlined a breakdown of the Report of RU-486 Event forms that it obtained. Among the more than 100 reports, Women’s Med Dayton in Dayton and Mt. Auburn Planned Parenthood in Cincinnati accounted for a huge portion with 43 each. Both facilities offered chemical and surgical abortion options for women.
Furthermore, it noted that 20 Ohio abortionists signed off on the forms. Dr. Catherine Romanos, who works at Women’s Med Dayton, was the abortionist responsible for signing off on the most forms. Incidentally, the clinic where she works is owned by Dr. Martin Haskell – the late-term abortionist who supposedly invented the now-banned partial birth abortion procedure.
One form was signed by a medical professional named “Dr. Brittany,” but further scrutiny revealed that no such licensed doctor in Ohio exists. Operation Rescue has requested an investigation into the identity of “Dr. Brittany” to find out if laws have been violated.
Operation Rescue President Troy Newman commented on the group’s findings: “When the abortionists claim abortion pills are safe – remember these 125 women who had to endure unwanted surgical intervention, emergency room visits, blood transfusions and hospitalization.”
“When that many women in one state suffer complications that require this level of intervention in just 16 months, there is no way one can call abortion pills safe. Efforts by the abortion cartel to liberalize access to these drugs is dangerous and should be opposed.”
“The news has been rife with reports of the planned expansion of abortion pill usage throughout the U.S.,” remarked Operation Rescue. “Planned Parenthood and other abortion businesses are scrambling to assure the public that the chemical abortion cocktail, comprised of mifepristone (formerly known as RU-486) and misoprostol, is perfectly ‘safe’ even without the oversight of a licensed physician.”
