Mifepristone (RU-486) and Penicillin

The estimated death rate for mifepristone (RU-486) is 0.8* per 100,000 procedures.

The death rate from a shot of penicillin is 2 per 100,000 cases.

*This is based on a total of 3 reported deaths in women who received Mifeprex. Since a casual link to the drug is not yet clear, it's an estimated death rate.
