Abortion Pill RU-486 Kills Two More Women

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Two additional deaths have been reported after women took the abortion pill known as RU-486 or Mifeprex, U.S. regulators said on Friday.

The Food and Drug Administration said it has not been able to determine the cause of the newly reported deaths. Four previously reported fatalities were linked to a bacterial infection that developed after the women took the abortion pill, which is sold by privately held Danco Laboratories.

However, five women have died (four in the US and one in Canada), not four as reported by Reuters. In addition -- "An examination of over 800 RU-486 regimen adverse event reports reveals a high number of serious and life-threatening bleeding cases."

The RU-486 abortion regimen was tested in Washington state by Seattle abortionist Suzanne Pomppena. At a workshop in 1999, Dr. Pomppena told her audience of prospective chemical abortionists, "a nurse-practitioner or a certified nurse-midwife, or a physician's assistant can provide non-surgical abortions in your facility. If that's true, it's a great way to add revenue to your clinic."

No word yet on where the newly reported deaths took place or where the abortion drug was administered.

Four of the seven US women to die got their abortion drugs at Planned Parenthood, and two at National Abortion Federation facilities. Only Brenda Vise, the woman with an undiagnosed ectopic pregnancy, got hers at a fly-by-night abortion mill.

If this is the care women get at the "best" facilities, what is happening to the women at the seedy places?
