US Senators/Congressmen Call for Ban Abortion Drug RU-486 After Deaths Reported

Earlier this week, LifeSiteNews.com reported that the company manufacturing the abortion drug, RU-486, admitted Monday that there have been five deaths of women who used it. Danco Laboratories refused to admit that there was "any causal relationship" between the women's deaths and their drug, while admitting that the drug was 'successful' in its baby-killing mission in over 460,000 cases.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) followed on Tuesday with an announcement that they would be investigating the dangers of the drug while issuing a public health advisory on the risk of sepsis or blood infection when undergoing medical abortion using Mifeprex and misoprostol.

A group of legislators, however, said the FDA's measures were inadequate. After the company revealed the deaths, they called Wednesday for Congress to order a halt to sales of the abortion pill and require further safety review.

"Congress needs to act to take this deadly drug off the market and force a serious review of its safety," said South Carolina Republican Sen. Jim DeMint. The group includes DeMint, Senators Sam Brownback and David Vitter, both Republicans. Pennsylvania Republican Representative, Melissa Hart is sponsoring companion legislation in the House.
