But that's DIFFERENT!


Via Kevin Drum, deaths allegedly due to the "abortion pill?" Cause for much shrieking, wailing and gnashing of teeth over in Wankerville, of course.

Even more deaths allegedly due to Viagra? Ehhhhh ... not so much, I guess.

Ah yes, Mifepristone (spelling?), the abortion pill with the death rate far, far, lower than the maternal death rate.

Just going by the standard maternal death rate in the states, Mifepristone has saved something like 40 lives. I doubt viagra can say the same. Frigging wingnut wankers.

And, the deaths from the abortion pill have more to do with our terrible health care system (fever, bleeding? take two Advil, It's all in your head, suck it up, we can see you in a week, etc.) down here in the states. Bad follow-up; inattentive, unconcerned staff, office visits cost money - doncha know?
Time is of the essence, with Toxic Shock, and our system isn't very good at treating infections in a timely manner.
