Washington, DC — Last week the Food and Drug Administration announced that the killer abortion drug Mifepristone (RU 486) has claimed the lives of two more women. This brings the known death toll to 6 in a three year span from 2003-2005.
The FDA has issued new warnings about the dangers of the abortion drug and Planned Parenthood, while refusing to stop its use has agreed to stop the unapproved vaginal use of it.
Operation Rescue says this is just “too little, too late.”
“Since the days when Dr. Samuel Yen first began clinical trials of RU 486 in San Diego in 1993, we have always warned that this drug should not be allowed to be used. The dangers with the drug for mother and child have always been apparent,” said Operation Rescue spokesperson Cheryl Sullenger.
“Because abortion-related deaths are notoriously under-reported, we don’t really know how many women have actually died from this drug,” said Sullenger. “Every time Planned Parenthood or any other abortionist administers Mifepristone, they prove how little they really care for the welfare of women. They might as well be playing Russian Roulette with their lives. We know it is a killer, in more ways than one, and should be taken off the market immediately.”
