It’s a terrifying time for expecting mothers with Zika running wild. A recent study by the New England Journal of Medicine shows that requests for abortion pills (RU486) have doubled in many affected countries, and gone up 30% in others.
We need to stop this from happening. It is unlikely that Zika alone is causing the epidemic of microcephaly. The best data we have from previous outbreaks is that only 1% of mothers will be affected. Of those, we should be able to predict the chances of microcephaly by using existing testing for antibodies to dengue.
From my research, detailed in the short book I just published, it is clear that microcephaly is a cross-reaction between Zika and a previous infection with dengue. Only those mothers with multiple infections are at risk. Please spread the word and help prevent unnecessary abortions.
