You may have heard the FDA has just come out with a new label for Mifepristone, aka the abortion pill. First of all, this is a good thing! Yay! It seems like all we hear about are new restrictions on abortion and the abortion pill, but on Wednesday, we heard good news. What’s the 411? In short, access to the abortion pill is being improved.
The FDA’s label change on Mifepristone is way more than just changing some text on a piece of paper. It affects the distribution of the pill, administration guidelines of the pill, and availability of the pill. And the good news? These changes are positive and a step in the right direction. There’s still more to be done to improve access to the abortion pill, but this is a victory and we should stay positive about this progress.
Why would the FDA do this? Well, thanks to years of evidence-based information and scientific data, the FDA decided to update the label to acknowledge the facts, and safety, of the abortion pill.
So how do these facts and changes affect you? The biggest change is that when and how you can take the abortion pill has been updated. The recommendation about follow-up visits has also been updated to better suit the needs of clients. All these changes are positive and in the best interest of women seeking Mifepristone.
