Two additional deaths following medical abortion with mifepristone (RU-486)

Update: Christina commented,
"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?"
I am certain that this is being seriously under-reported.

Got this in my email today from an FDA Public Health Advisory released yesterday.
The Food and Drug Administration has been informed of two additional deaths following medical abortion with mifepristone (Mifeprex). The Agency received verbal notification of the deaths in the United States from the manufacturer, Danco Laboratories. At this time we are investigating all circumstances associated with these cases and are not able to confirm the causes of death. However, all providers of medical abortion and their patients need to be aware of the specific circumstances and directions for use of this drug and all risks including sepsis when considering treatment. In particular, physicians and their patients should fully discuss early potential signs and symptoms that may warrant immediate medical evaluation.
Women need to be properly informed of the dangers of this medication. Where is choice when there isn't truth, disclosure, and true concern for the health of the mother? No, politics and social agenda trump these!
