So-called ‘Gold Standard’ Abortion Pill Regimen Causes Serious Adverse Reactions (Canada)

A summary of spontaneously reported adverse reactions from the so called “gold standard “  abortion pill regimen shows numerous reports of serious events resulting in hospitalization. Reports of life threatening sepsis, numerous reports of haemorrhaging and numerous failed abortions were among the findings. The report released by The Canada Vigilance Program, concerns the abortion pill regimen Mifegymiso, the name used in Canada for the combined use of Mifepristone and Misoprostol. The report highlights the fact that the adverse reactions were reported on a voluntary basis. Health Canada also released a 195 page adverse events report on Mifigymiso, some of which is documented on the blog of pro-life blogger Patricia Maloney.
