Hold On While I Press This Button…

Planned Parenthood of the Heartland seems to be leading the way in abortion options…
Now available: Abortions for women in small towns in the state of Iowa!
Because having to go out of your way to kill your child is too difficult…

The women no longer have to make a trip to a big city… little towns like Red Oak, Iowa (Pop. 6,197 in the last census) has a Planned Parenthood with a new abortion option.
Basically, you walk in, talk to a nurse, take a pregnancy test, then sit in front of a computer, talk to a doctor in Des Moines via a web cam, and once the doctor approves, they press a button on their keyboard.
Out pops a tray in front of this woman, miles away, containing the RU-486 abortion drug.
RU-486 is only to be given to women who are no more than 7 weeks pregnant, so says the FDA.
After 7 weeks of pregnancy, effectiveness drops below a level that the FDA considers safe.

Does anyone remember the woman who Tweeted her abortion, as well as post videos on YouTube talking about the abortion?
She used the RU-486 pill to abort her child.
Angie Jackson decided to kill her baby and let the whole wide world know about it via the internet.
I’m doing this to de-mystify abortion,” she says. “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.”

Obviously Angie was right.
It’s not all that bad, it’s so “not all that bad” that it isn’t necessary to have the doctor prescribing the drug present when it’s given out.
Why doesn’t that work with other drugs?
Can I just sit in front of a computer and tell a doctor that I’m in a lot of pain and have a tray pop open containing Oxycontin or Percocet?
I mean, you can let your nurse poke and prod me, I’ll act like I’m in pain the entire time!
