Alameda County woman may have died from abortion pill.
From the Bay Area Mercury News:
"Menlo Park - An investigation has been launched into the death of an Alameda County teenager who died several days after reportedly taking the abortion pill R-U 486.
The 18-year-old girl's father told the San Francisco Chronicle she got a prescription for the drug from a Planned Parenthood office in Hayward on September 10th. She was seven weeks pregnant at the time.
Planned Parenthood told the newspaper it is working with the family to find the cause of her death.
Monty Patterson said his daughter Holly visited Planned Parenthood last Wednesday. She began taking the drugs Saturday. He says his daughter was bleeding and in acute pain from Sunday to Wednesday.
She was treated at a Pleasanton hospital and released Sunday. She went back in Wednesday and died yesterday afternoon.
The coroner's office says it has not established a cause of death.
R-U 486 has been available in France since 1988. It was approved by the Food and Drug Administration three years ago to end pregnancies of 49 days or less."
