When the women’s magazine Cosmopolitan runs articles about women’s abortion experiences, it almost always promotes abortion as something good and necessary for women.
This week, the magazine published an interview with three women who aborted their unborn babies using the FDA-approved abortion drugs mifepristone and misoprostol. The three women came from different backgrounds and life experiences; but the gist of their stories was the same – their abortions were easy, relatively painless and the best decision for them.
Through their stories, the women’s magazine pushed the abortion drug method as a safe and easy process that should be readily available to women who do not want to be pregnant anymore. The article did not feature any of the numerous stories of women who experienced extremely painful or incomplete abortions after using the drugs. And while the article briefly mentioned the possible risks for women, it did not mention that one of them is death.
