Michelle Malkin has a post called "The Forgotten Victims of Choice" that's stupid even for her. Commenting on the handful of deaths that have resulted from the use of RU-486 (the 'abortion pill'), Malky writes:
Interesting that the usual crowd of pharmaceutical-bashers, who undoubtedly would have lobbied for any other drug with such health outcomes to be pulled, have nothing to say about these deaths.INDC explains what's wrong with Michelle's 'reasoning' - she ignores the fact that the fatality rate of RU-486 is actually extraordinarily low when compared to other common drugs - as well as child birth.
The silence of women's health advocates is even more damning.
So, while 1 in 92,000 women have died from RU-486 side effects since the drug's US approval, 1 in 3,700 American women have died in childbirth during the same period, making actually giving birth 25 times more deadly than having a chemical abortion.I'll let you know the second I hear about Malkin issuing a retraction.
