US Bishops official laments latest abortion pill deaths
Comment Email Print
 The spokeswoman for the Pro-Life Secretariat of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops has regretted the deaths of two more women from RU-486 abortions, bringing the total of known maternal fatalities to ten. "We are deeply saddened by yet another advisory from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that two more women have died from RU-486 abortions," said the spokesperson, Deirdre A McQuade. "According to the New England Journal of Medicine (December, 2005), RU-486 abortions are ten times more likely to kill a woman, from infection alone, than are surgical abortions in early pregnancy," Ms McQuade said. "This estimate does not even include RU-486 related deaths from other causes, such as ruptured ectopic pregnancy." "After five years of trauma and death associated with RU-486, the FDA's response has been limited to health advisories and amended drug labelling. How many more healthy women must die before the agency takes a close second look at RU-486?" she asked. "We again call on Congress to pass the RU-486 Suspension and Review Act ("Holly's Law") which will protect women's lives while the flawed FDA approval process of this dangerous drug is scrutinised."
