A disturbing new video is going viral, which shows a New York woman appearing to give herself an abortion – while on Instagram Live, MTO News has learned. The video has gone viral, and has been seen by more than 10 million people.
In the video, the woman claims that her baby’s father – who is African American – came over to her house recently and the two had sex. The woman explains, “He has a girlfriend, so I guess he’s not allowed to be a father [to their 1 year old son].”
The woman continued, “We ended up having sex, he cheated with me . . . and I’m a couple of weeks postpartum.”
Then, MTO News watched as the woman did the unthinkable. She opened up a box of “Plan B”, and appeared to ingest the pills – washing them down with a large glass of Red Bull.
The bad news for the woman is that ingesting Plan B may not have ended her pregnancy, which she claims is already a “few weeks” along. The worse news is that it could be harmful to the child.
MTO did a bit of research and Plan B isn’t the same thing as the abortion pill. According to the label on Plan B’s box, it doesn’t cause abortion or miscarriage.
Plan B, also known as the morning-after pill, is a form of emergency contraception (EC) that contains levonorgestrel, a synthetic form of the hormone progestin. Plan B can help prevent pregnancy if taken within 120 hours (5 days) after sex.
But the cox specifically states that it “doesn’t work if you’re already pregnant.”
It’s not clear what effect that taking a Plan B pill while pregnant would by harmful to the unborn child.
