How does this headline make sense?

This was in my NY Times email this morning:

Tainted Drugs Linked to Maker of Abortion Pill
By JAKE HOOKER and WALT BOGDANICH
A state-owned Chinese company is at the center of a scandal after nearly 200 Chinese cancer patients were paralyzed or otherwise harmed by contaminated drugs.


So, exactly what part does the abortion pill they make play in this particular story?

Nothing. But apparently it serves to make the story more sinister/sensational. Can I get a collective eye roll?
