Abortion drug causes fatal infection

Life News reports on an article to be published in next month's Annals of Pharmacotherapy.
Professor Ralph P. Miech, MD, Ph.D. writes that the antiprogesterone effects of mifepristone also cause changes in the cervix that allow C. sordellii, a common vaginal bacteria, to enter the cervical canal.

The C. sordelli bacteria is particularly dangerous because the woman can have a life-threatening infection without the fever that usually accompanies infection.

The Life News article did not indicate if the vaginal use of the drug increases the effects and makes infection more likely.
