Mystery Surrounding Use Of Abortion Pill Yet To Be Resolved

Reports of the death of four Californian women due to the toxic shock syndrome following consumption of the abortion pill RU-486 (Mifeprex) has created much confusion // and controversy among members of the scientific community.

The abortion pill was first approved for termination of early pregnancy (7 week duration or less) in the United States in the year 2000. Since then, more than 460,000 doses of the medication have been distributed.

If the four deaths were the only ones to have occurred after using the drug, probably it would indicate that women who use it for induced abortion face a higher risk of contracting the infection. This would be approximate to a 10 times higher than the risk associated with surgical abortions performed early in pregnancy.

The biggest mystery relating to the tragedy is the incidence of all four cases in a single state while the FDA confirms the uniform frequency of drug usage throughout California. The CDC is hoping to raise awareness about the potential risks with the new report.

In view of the above report, may be it is time for doctors to closely examine the potential risks of any medication prescribed and keep a
