On March 30, the U.S. Federal Drug Administration relaxed rules governing the use of the abortion drug RU-486, expanding access to the procedure. Abortion proponents, who lobbied the administration to change the rules, applauded the action. Mifepristone/misoprostol chemical abortions, first approved in 2000, make up about one quarter of all abortions. The drug has claimed the lives of two million unborn babies in the U.S.
