    A Vancouver doctor has successfully produced a rival for RU 486 
which uses two inexpensive and readily available medications. It can 
be used within the first few weeks of pregnancy and a success rate 
of 95% was obtained in its first clinical trial.  Unlike RU 486, 
only one visit to a doctor is required when the anti-cancer drug, 
Methotrexate, is injected amd the patient is given a vaginal 
suppository, Mysoprostol, to be inserted three days after the 
injection.  Within a few hours, the miscarriage starts and no 
serious side-effects were encountered with the first 100 patients.

      Naturally. further testing will be required but one hopes that 
the rabid anti-abortionists will concede defeat in their unholy war 
to stop women exercising their right to control their reproductive 
functions.
