Nothing to get political about

Drudge links to this report about a girl from the West Coast who died after an abortion induced by the hastily-approved abortion pill RU-486.
The 18-year-old was given the abortion pill a week earlier by a Planned Parenthood Clinic in Hayward, where she sought it without the knowledge of her father.
Nope, can't let daddy know. Make sure that the only counsel she gets is from an organization that profits from abortion and, like any other organization, will strive to cover its ass. No, it's worse - they have an entire worldview to protect which to them is worth infinitely more than the safety of any drug or the life of any girl.
When she fell ill Sept. 14, her boyfriend rushed her to Valley Care Medical Center, where she reportedly was told that her pain and bleeding were normal, and she was sent home with painkillers.

She returned to the hospital three days later, on Sept. 17, and died.
Does this prove that RU-486 is dangerous to more than just who it's intended to kill? No, of course not. And any pregnancy that does not result in a birth will affect the health of the mother.

But if the drug is not safe, and does not meet ordinary FDA standards for safety, then someone ought to be accountable.

Wouldn't it be ironic if one of these days women figure out that to the pro-abortionists, their lives are expendable for The Greater Cause. And thus learned not to listen to them.
