National Catholic Register has some insightful comments on a
new study finding that injectable contraceptives are linked to a higher

More Than A Decade After FDA Approval,
RU-486 Is Used to Abuse and Exploit Women
This year marks 11
years since the RU-486 abortion drug was approved for use in the United
States. According to a report released this summer by the Food & Drug
Administration, the deaths of at least 12 women and more than 2,200
adverse effects have been reported since the drug was approved.
The deaths include that of
18-year-old Holly Patterson, who died in 2003 after being told by
Planned Parenthood that the symptoms she was experiencing after an
RU-486 abortion were "normal." Her family has now launched a web site to
share Holly's story and warn the public about the risks of RU-486.
Read our special
report on RU-486. Learn how it is used to abuse and exploit
pregnant women and their unborn children, and the link to the population
control adgenda. You can also share this report with others on your web
site, blog, social networking sites and other outlets.
