A Near Death Experience With RU-486 -- Tweeted

This woman almost got 86'ed!

The copycat who stopped live tweeting her abortion.

We learned together Jackson was grossly uninformed about the medical abortion process.

For nine days Jackson tweeted about recurring headaches, nausea, vomiting, bleeding, pelvic pain, backaches, and cramping so bothersome she went through an entire bottle of 20 Tylenol with codeine in a week and had to ask for more (which she was apparently denied, tweeting Feb. 27, "This is definitely the most pain so far. It's distracting & makes me unhappy… Ibuprofin is a joke, ya'll").

Maybe coming out of codeine la-la land caused Jackson to realize tweeting the painful details of her abortion did not bode well for her RU-486 promotion campaign, because it was on that day she stopped, also noting with aggravation that I was blogging what she wrote.


Meanwhile, a copycat named Next Thursday, inspired by Jackson, decided to begin tweeting her RU-486 abortion on Feb. 25.

Next Thursday wanted to abort because "[t]his pregnancy was unexpected. We cannot afford another child, we do not have room for another child, and my body is not ready to experience pregnancy again so soon after our last child."

Next Thursday had three children, the youngest being 9 months old and still breast-feeding.

(I read "breast-feeding" and winced. Among many things for which RU-486, aka mifepristone, has not been tested is breast-feeding. The labeling indicates, "It is not known whether mifepristone is excreted in human milk. Many hormones with a similar chemical structure, however, are excreted in breast milk. Since the effects of mifepristone on infants are unknown, breast-feeding women should consult with their health care provider to decide if they should discard their breast milk for a few days following administration of the medications." Was Next Thursday told that?) ...
