RU486 Not all the witches were burned

by C. Flamigni C. Melega

This book explains how RU486 works and raises a series of ethical issues in Italy about which there is still much confusion.
The authors have controversially dedicated the book to the Members of the “Istituto Superiore di Sanità” that has recently decided that “the only mode of administering”  RU486 should be “through hospitalization”. This text becomes clear proof that, if in Italy there are institutions that do not aim to defend and  guarantee women’s freedom and health, on the other hand there are many physicians and administrators who are fighting for them.
