WOMAN SUES OH ABORTION SITE SAYING RU 486 RUINED HER FERTILITY D. Powell filed a lawsuit against the Akron Women’s Center for Choice, saying she had cramping and bleeding associated with a 10/02 pregnancy and went to the abortion site.
Staff there told her the pregnancy was not problematic, and she was given RU-486. Her condition grew worse over the next month until she was forced to go to the hospital. Diagnosis: a ruptured ectopic pregnancy in the left fallopian tube, leaving her unable to conceive. Danco Laboratories, the maker of RU-486 says the abortion drug should not be taken by women who have such pregnancies.
