Re: Abortion Delays Cited In New Study, Nov. 24.
There may be good reasons why mifepristone and misoprostol (RU-486) have not yet been legalized for medical abortions in Canada. Their failure rate in international studies ranges between 4% and 16% or higher. Medical abortions also have more adverse side effects than surgical abortion, and the children who survive them have a much higher incidence of birth defects, including Möbius syndrome.
Of course, almost every woman seeking an abortion does have a real alternative. She can carry her pregnancy to term.
