New FDA Warning Label for RU-486 Draws Fire

NPR's Joanne Silberner reports on the Federal Drug Administration's announcement of new warning language for labels on the drug Mifepristone, also known as RU-486. Both abortion-rights supporters and abortion opponents contend the FDA is putting politics over safety in their handling of the drug, which can be used for non-surgical termination of early pregnancy, defined as 49 days or less.
