A reminder of the "black box" warning for abortion drugs

In the wake of the news of two additional chemical abortion deaths, now would be a good time to remind everybody of the "black box" warning the FDA puts on the first of the two drugs, methotrexate:
Methotrexate should be used only by physicians whose knowledge and experience includes the use of antimetabolite therapy.

I wonder how many abortionists fit that criterion.
Because of the possibility of serious toxic reactions, the patient should be informed by the physician of the risks involved and should be under a physician's constant supervision.

Again, I wonder. How many abortionists who pass this stuff out like Halloween candy are warning the patients of what the FDA says about this drug? And "Here's your pills. Have a nice life!" doesn't seem like the kind of supervision the FDA had in mind. These quacks aren't even having the women come in for a check-up before giving them the misoprostol, the way the FDA recommends.
Deaths have been reported with the use of methotrexate in the treatment of [certain diseases].

And in the "treatment" of pregnancy, which only a true abortion fanatic can consider a "disease."
Methotrexate use whould be restricted to patients with severe, recalcitrant, disabling disease, which is not adequately responsive to other forms of therapy....

So, I guess to these guys, pregnancy is a "severe, recalcitrant, disabling disease." One can hardly call something that clears up on its own in nine months or less "recalcitrant."

So, judge for yourselves how responsibly the abortionists are passing out this drug.
