The family of a woman who died after taking the abortion pill says the firm didn't give patients sufficient warning of possible risks.
From the Los Angeles Times:
The family of an Orange County woman who died after taking RU-486 and a follow-up drug has sued Danco Laboratories, the distributor of the so-called abortion pill, charging that the company did not sufficiently warn women of potential risks.
Hoa Thuy Tran, a 21-year-old teaching student from Fountain Valley, died in 2003 after taking the two drugs to end a pregnancy. She is one of four U.S. women ó all from California ó who allegedly died of massive infection after taking RU-486, prescribed under the brand name Mifeprex, since it was approved by the FDA in 2000.
