A new form of Misoprostol (Cytotec) is in trials for FDA approval to be used for labor induction.    Cytogec is only currently approved for use in preventing ulcers.

We know that using synthetic drugs in L&D is related to increased c-sections and complications.  Does a the potential FDA approval of a new labor inducing drug worry you?
