Abortion death

A woman died after using the abortion pill RU486 supplied by multi-national abortion provider Marie Stopes International. The woman died in 2012. A Coroner decided not to proceed with an inquest into the death. Marie Stopes will not disclose information on the death citin patient confidentiality. The news came out when the Therapeutic Goods Administration confirmed the death.

The Australian Newspaper said (Abortion pill death sparkered warning, James Walker, March 19, 2012)  the health regulator, the Therapeutic Goods Administration, issued a notice to doctors and clinics to review their follow-up care in light of the “bedroom abortion” gone wrong.

It said: “Marie Stopes clinical services director Jill Michelson said of the woman’s death: “This is a tragic outcome and our sympathies are with her family. The coroner dispensed with holding an inquest, and the case is closed.”

The TGA is ‘advising’ abortionists to change their practices to ensure a follow-up is made with women taking the pill to “exclude infections, incomplete abortion and therapeutic failure. Marie Stopes International did  not indicate if it would change its practices.
