Right intention, wrong approrach

Pro Life With Christ blogs the Life News story of congresscritters trying to ban RU-486 in the wake of the Danco announcement of five sepsis deaths following off-label use.

Focusing on the drug and on trying to ban its use, even temporarily, is knee-jerk and it shows. The far better approach, in my never-to-be-humble opinion, is to zoom in on the fact that it was sloppy practice. After all, mainstream media are readily covering the fact that the facilities where the women got their fatal abortions were not doing what they were supposed to do. And one of them, the one where Holly Patterson got her drugs, was a Planned Parenthood, for crying out loud! That should help quiet the "Only a few fringe quacks do that sort of thing!" cries that we usually get from abortion advocates in the wake of scandal.
