The Planned Parenthood in Austin, Texas resumed abortions on Friday after their abortionist obtained admitting privileges at a local hospital.  This was the same Planned Parenthood which cancelled Marni Evans’ abortion.  By the way, Evans has deleted her tweets asking various media individuals to contact her about her cancelled abortion.           

The Miami Herald has an article on the frequent use of misoprostol (aka Cytotec) as an abortion drug in Haiti. 
“There is no control over the medication. People go to any pharmacy and ask for this medication and they give it to them,” said Dr. Vladimir Larsen, head of the Society of Haitian Obstetrics and Gynecology , which has conducted two studies in the last four years on the widespread popularity and use of misoprostol.

When Nadia, 19, asked a friend to purchase misoprostol at a local pharmacy to terminate her five-week pregnancy, she wasn’t prepared for how her body would react. The friend bought three pills and told her “they said take two and insert the third.”

“You hear people talk. But you don’t realize where it can have you end up,” Nadia said from her hospital bed after an incomplete abortion. Two days after secretly downing two pills, the teen landed at the emergency obstetrics center run by Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders in the city of Delmas in Haiti’s capital. She had shivers, heavy bleeding, a fever and a headache........

A Miami Herald reporter easily purchased the pill from pharmacies, and street merchants near the country’s public State University Hospital. Every vendor quoted a different price and instructions on how much to take to terminate a 12-week pregnancy. Almost all suggested it be taken as part of a cocktail mix of wine or beer, as they dug deep into colorful cone-shaped buckets to retrieve the pill from a silver package. They simply smiled when asked why it was hidden.

State officials in Delaware have reached a consent agreement with former Planned Parenthood  abortionist Timothy Liveright after the state found he was a “clear and immediate danger to the public.”
A hearing on the complaint was scheduled for Friday but was canceled after Liveright signed a consent agreement drafted by the attorney general's office. Officials refused to disclose details until the agreement is accepted by the Board of Medical Licensure and Discipline at its January meeting.

Vladimir Putin has signed a law to make abortion ads illegal in Russia.
