.- A Wisconsin man who caused two miscarriages by slipping abortion pills to his girlfriend has been charged with first-degree homicide.

According to the Associated Press, Manishkumar Patel, 34, is charged with first-degree murder of an unborn child and second-degree recklessly endangering safety.  He also faces counts involving food tampering, burglary, illegal prescription possession, and other charges.

The woman suspected he was secretly dosing her with the abortion pill RU-486, and sent a blood sample to a California lab for analysis.  She approached police after receiving a positive result.  Sheriff’s investigators said Patel confessed to putting the drug in the woman’s food without her knowledge.

Concerned Women for America President Wendy Wright called for authorities to investigate how Patel acquired the drug and criminally charge his supplier.

"This is even worse than we had imagined. We have warned that if the FDA approved over-the-counter access to the morning-after pill, it would be obtained by men and slipped to women without their knowledge. RU-486 is more dangerous than the morning-after pill. The FDA knows this and required it only be taken in medical clinics by women under 49 days pregnant -- which would require a medical exam to determine. It appears that abortionists are handing out the drug to people other than patients, including men," said Wright.

Concerned Women for America in a 2002 legal challenge presented evidence that the Food and Drug Administration’s approval of RU-486 was illegal and put women at risk.  The organization charged that abortion clinics routinely violate the conditions for administering the drug.

CWA has asked the FDA to rescind its approval of the abortion drug.
