Throughout human history, pregnant people have sought ways to safely end their pregnancies and control their fertility. Today, the most common methods are in-clinic abortions and FDA-approved abortion pills, also known as medication abortion. Access to safe and affordable abortion care improves economic, social, and health outcomes. Yet misinformation is common and abortion opponents work hard to raise medically unnecessary barriers to abortion care. Get the facts on abortion.
Tell the FDA: Let pregnant people receive the abortion pill through the mail during COVID-19!
Pregnant people who seek safe and effective FDA-approved abortion pills are required by the FDA to pick up the first pill in person from designated clinics and doctors’ offices — even though the FDA permits them to wait until they get home to swallow it and the abortion itself always takes place at home.
We’re calling on the FDA to permanently lift these restrictions and let pregnant people receive the abortion pill through the mail so that they can get the pill where they take the pill!
