In 2012, the group, Physicians for Human Rights, was studying the effects of tear gas as it was being used on civilians in Bahrain, and they also found that CS gas can cause clinical spontaneous abortions just weeks after exposure. They also found this effect isn’t limited to just the last trimester and can affect fetuses at any stage of development. And in 1988, a UN report linked dozens of miscarriages to the use of tear gas by Israelis against Palestinians. That was almost 30 years ago, and the same thing is still happening today. Israelis are still lobbing tear gas, made in the USA, at Palestinians. And American police in Ferguson are now lobbing canisters of this gas, which has been linked to spontaneous abortions.
