FDA Permits Forever Abortion Pills and Letters

Mu released last month by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 42 percent of all abortions – and 54 percent of abortions 10 weeks earlier – occurred with medication in 2019, the most recent year for the CDC. (This report is nationally representative, but does not include information from California, Maryland and New Hampshire.)

By 2020, other countries, inclusive Indiana, Kansas and Minnesota, the practice is leading to more abortions, according to reports from the state health department.

The CDC also stated that 79 percent of abortions occurred within 10 weeks, indicating that there are more women who would choose abortion pills if they could.

Medical abortion, a two-drug approach, was approved in the United States in 2000. The FDA imposed restrictions on the first drug, mifepristone, demanding that provided in hospitals or clinics by specially designated providers, who must sign a formal agreement and obtain patient signature on form acknowledging that their agent has informed them of the drug. These rules allow patients to take mifepristone in their homes or wherever they choose, making it the only drug the organization requires patients to get individually from a doctor but not to be under medical supervision, experts say.

The second drug, misoprostol, taken up to 48 hours after the initial dose, has been available for a long time and is frequently prescribed in a pharmacy.

Major medical organizations and abortion groups have been urging governments to reduce the use of mifepristone contraceptives, citing the evidence that mifepristone is effective and safe, including by mail.

For example, a research program approved by the FDA to provide telemedicine messages and send tablets and mail reports that 95 per cent of the 1,157 abortions that occurred through the program between May 2016 and September 2020 were completed without following any procedure. Patients visited 70 times in emergency rooms or emergency rooms, with 10 major emergencies, the study said.
