Maybe their view is that it isn't 'reproductive health' but instead just 'terminating the life of the unborn' - hense why would a reproductive health site have it listed?

For starters because "spontaneous abortion" is correct medical terminology for miscarriage.

I'm a-gonna have to ask my buddy who works on databases for Hopkins about that one. That's just too weird.

A UK publication and Village Voice have picked this up today, but that's about it.
