Australian doctor claims legal victory for RU-486

Catholic World News - October 19, 2010

An Australian obstetrician who helped introduce the abortifacient drug RU-486 in Queensland has hailed a court decision acquitting a couple who used the drug of criminal charges.

"The decision in this case has in fact decriminalised the use by doctors of mifepristone (RU486) and misoprostol for the purpose of medical abortion in Queensland," said Caroline de Costa. Although surgical abortion remains illegal, she claimed, the use of RU-486 will not result in criminal prosecution.
