Jesus Take The Wheel: Woman With A Gut Full Of Human Mistakenly Receives Abortion Pills Instead Of Antibiotics!

- By Bossip Staff

As sad as it is that she may lose her child, this woman is going to make BIG money from suing this Pharmacy if she does.

FORT LUPTON, Colo. — A Colorado woman who is six weeks pregnant says a pharmacist at a grocery store mistakenly gave her an abortion drug instead of an antibiotic and now she fears she will lose her unborn child.

Mareena Silva tells Denver’s KMGH-TV that the pharmacist at the Safeway in Fort Lupton gave her methotrexate last week. The drug, intended for another woman, is used in chemotherapy and to terminate early-stage pregnancies.

Silva says she took a pill and checked the bottle after becoming sick. She was rushed to the hospital.

Doctors say Silva could miscarry or have a baby with birth defects.

A woman at Silva’s apartment Tuesday said she’s not talking to the media. Safeway says it has apologized to Silva and will pay medical expenses resulting from the mistake.

In a statement released Tuesday afternoon, Safeway director of public affairs Kristine J. Staaf says, “We are redoubling our efforts to ensure that all our pharmacists follow the strict policies and procedures we have in place to prevent medication errors.

“All pharmacy personnel are instructed to ask and listen to the patient’s full name and date of birth before retrieving a medication from the “will call” area,” the statement continues. “They are then instructed to repeat that information to the patient before the transaction is completed and any medication is given. Had that procedure been followed, this regrettable error could have been avoided.”

We hope that all works out for Ms. Silva, no amount of money in the world is worth the life of an unborn child.

      WHY do people do this? You don’t have enough money to take out a REAL ad?

  • *~h!$ c00k!3~*

    This is sad.They may as well get ready because somebody is going to PAY big time….If the proper procedure was done this could have been prevented…..but they are right…no amount of $ is worth the life of an unborn child…..I would be hurt…..I love my girls..they’re my heart.


      Not just that what about birth defects. The meds are eating the fetus, they should pay for respite care and all other medical needs for life if the child turns out to have special needs.

    • realdwn2erth

      Who’s to say, she’ll even, want another child, after that, experience?? And, that was a very, insensitive and dumb, comment.. as with the majority, of the comments, and so-called; ads on here.. Smdh! You people, are crazy!

  • Superior ONE!!!

    OMG, this is a mistake that should have never happen to begin with, I’ll be checking my Rx from this day forward, how careless.

  • diamond prince$$

    So sad….

    @ Sara…..kill urself.

  • Like Seriously....

    This is a sad situation and everything but SERIOUSLY what type of person takes a medication before looking at the bottle?Not to mention on ALL RXs they incude atleast a pamphlet(perhaps two)it describes the drug what it looks like the size what its intented for and also the possible side effects instructions and warning on the drugs.So even if it was the pharms fault(which it is) WHY IN THE HECK would she take meds not knowing what she is putting into her body especially while pregnant?

  • G.M.

    wonder if she read the bottle before taking the pills

  • Laila

    @ G.M ofcourse she didnt read what she was taking before she took it.How can she put something into her body not knowing the effects or purpose of the drug is beyond me O.o.F.y.i just because a dr.says here take this does not mean its safe-always do your own research before you start playing with your health.

  • Soul Touch

    Sad story. Check your perscriptions. A friend in HS lost her mom senior because he doctor gave her two conflicting perscriptions. Knocked her out and she hit her head on a marble table…died.

  • It's Me

    God will make sure all is fine with you and your baby. Keep God first Ma!


    I see how the mistake was easily made on both parts. However many busy Pharmacist fail to take the time out and discuss the medications with you. They ARE supposed to go over the meds b4 just handing them to you.

  • 6.7.2011

    Oh god this is so sad. I pray her and the baby will be alright.

  • Greeneyedbandit

    The same pill is used for chemo and to terminate pregnancy,thats a bad mf pill!

  • Tray

    I have filled rx; took them home read the pamphlet that comes with it and decided based upon the side effects alone I’m not taking this; and on my next Dr. visit explained asked, why would I take something that can give me suicidal thoughts just to get some sleep…READ what your taking beforehand.

  • !!!!!


  • Ellie

    This story is absolutely horrific and devastating. Even if the child survives who knows what kind of defects it will have. A big settlement won’t replace her what was supposed to be her first child.

    I agree she should have read the label before taking the medication. Although the person it was meant for had a similar name. Either way this is tragic.

  • laila

    I smell lawsuit!

  • Illuminate Truth "I'd rather die as a lion than live as a lamb"

    There is always a lesson in tragedy. This one would be to stay the hell away from medical “practices” when pregnant. Get a midwife. Trust me on this one.

    • Illuminate Truth "I'd rather die as a lion than live as a lamb"

      “Silva says she took a pill and checked the bottle after becoming sick”

      Lesson no.2 – The pharmacist might not check the bottle, but you better. Before you take the medicine…smh.

  • neya

    I don’t believe since when do grocery stores start selling abortion pills.

    • Illuminate Truth "I'd rather die as a lion than live as a lamb"

      Where I’m at in jersey a lot of grocery stores have pharmacies inside of them. Its not like they have them next to the Capt’n Crunch…lol.

  • Hmm

    People sound so crazy with all the reaction post it’s so sad, no life is worth the money at the end of the day safeway will be closed for busniess, and shell be rich at the expense of her child.

  • AnyWaY DoE

    @realdown2erth how are we crazy for speaking the truth?Is it not crazy to take pills with out even looking @ the bottle beforehand?Or even taking 5mins to read the pamphlet describing what you are taking?Everyone agrees YES its a sad situation but ultimately you are responsible for your own health.You have to read research and decide if the side effects outweigh the benenfits-clearly she didnt.Bet you she wont ever take anything without reading first.

    • Illuminate Truth "I'd rather die as a lion than live as a lamb"

      Co-sign 100%..every word. I don’t know why if you put a white coat on somebody people put BLIND faith into them…with their very lives.


      Exactly… and I mean research the PILL… not the bottle or the label. You can google a description of the pill itself and get all the info needed before taking it.

  • if anything be noble

    Awwww come on now. Who in America reads anything? I mean, really. We don’t read 1/10th of the labels, warnings and instructions on the stuff we buy, much less eat. Most people can’t work their remotes or microwaves properly because who can be reading all those instructions. *raises hand and bows head in shame* We don’t even know where our food and drink come from or who REALLY made it, much less what’s in it. When’s the last time you consumed something that didn’t have a bar code on it.. fruits and vegetables included. It didn’t come from the farmer down the road. All the stuff in your body could’ve come from anywhere and have any and everything in it and we take “Keebler’s” word for it. Who the heck is “Keebler?” Pills aren’t our biggest worry. It’s all the stuff we ingest everyday.

    Pharm.acy’s are VERY DANGEROUS these day & times

    They hire Pharm Techs with only 6wks of training & let them do the majority of the work. They are RUDE, will make patients wait 24hrs for a Rx, etc.

    C.V.S & Wal.greens are the WORST PHARM.ACIES in the USA! I tell all of my patients to go to Tar.get, Wal-Mart, or Super.One

    The Board of Pharm.acy needs to get rid of the techs or make them get more education. It is DANGEROUS!!! Please believe

  • LOL

    IF INDEED half of America isnt reading what they are atleast putting into their bodies(prescription meds-wise) than damn Im surprised we havent heard more stories of this before.It is one thing to eat a burger…cereal..fruit or what have you bc these things are regualted by the AFDC..meaning while though they may not be the healthiest choices they are safe to ingest for just about anyone who doesnt have underlying conditions.
