We deserve to know the truth
I don't remember exactly when I first heard about RU-486. Maybe it was a little over a year ago, but since then I had known it to be a drug that, if taken by the mother, causes the death of her unborn baby. How the drug is marketed or presented to the public seems to be a different matter altogether.
Over the past few months, cases involving the drug were in the news -- and I saw it mentioned as well in a blog entry. Know what it's all about:
LOS ANGELES, October 11 2005, (LifeSiteNews.com) - In 2003, a 21 year-old student, Hoa Thuy Tran, died after taking the abortion drug regimen, RU-486, and now her family is suing the deadly drug's US marketer.

Here's a related story:
PROVIDENCE, July 28, 2005 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Even while the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is investigating deaths related to it, the manufacturers of the drug Mifepristone continue to deny that their drug was the cause of the bacterial infection that has killed five women.

And Real Choice relates what happened to 38-year-old Brenda Vise and 18-year-old Holly Patterson, who both took the abortion drug.
So much information has been established about RU-486. Ignorance is no excuse -- the lives of both mother and child are at stake.
