The FDA announced "two additional deaths following medical abortion with mifepristone," known as Mifeprex or RU-486. The agency cited four previous deaths of women who had taken the pills; another death had been reported in Canada. Bacteria are suspected. Anti-abortion spin: "The FDA has pulled other drugs that have caused fewer deaths and less severe complications than RU-486. Why the double-standard?" Planned Parenthood spin: 1) This makes only seven reported deaths among 560,000 incidents in which women took the pills. 2) "None of those deaths have been directly attributed to mifepristone." 3) Just to be safe, we're changing the way we administer the pills.

1) The difference between gay marriage and polygamy. 2) Stop giving healthy people Social Security. 3) South Dakota's invitation to snuff your embryo. 4) Technology and the end of Roe. 5) The nonsense of Olympic doping rules. 6) The temptation of remote-controlled killing. 7) Teachers who have sex withboys. 8) Our creepy genetic experiment on dogs.
