It's All In The Wording

I found it interesting the way these three articles (which are suppose to be the same AP story) are edited.

The first the story starts off like this ...
Two more women have died after using the abortion pill RU-486, regulators said Friday in a warning that brought renewed calls for pulling the controversial drug from the market.

The organization that provided the pill to the two women said it would immediately stop disregarding the approved instructions for the pill's use.

The second I saw from CNN said this ...
Two more women have died after using the so-called "abortion pill" RU-486, regulators said Friday in a warning that brought renewed calls for pulling the drug combination from the market.

The organization that provided the drugs to the two women said it would start following the approved instructions for their use.

And the third, the San Diego Union-Tribune ...

Two more women have died after using the abortion pill RU-486, federal health regulators said Friday, in warning doctors to watch for a rare but deadly infection implicated in earlier deaths.

At least seven U.S. women have died after taking the pill, sold since 2000. The Food and Drug Administration cannot prove the drug was to blame in any of the cases.

All Three had the by line: ANDREW BRIDGES, Associated Press Writer. It is very interesting how differently a story can be presented.

Four of the seven US women to die got their abortion drugs at Planned Parenthood, and two at National Abortion Federation facilities. Only Brenda Vise, the woman with an undiagnosed ectopic pregnancy, got hers at a fly-by-night abortion mill.

If this is the care women get at the "best" facilities, what is happening to the women at the seedy places?
