Last night, the U.S. Supreme Court reinstated the U. S. Food and Drug Administration’s medically unjustified requirement that people travel to a certified facility simply to pick up abortion pills that they are then allowed to safely take at home.
In brazen disregard of their own stated principles, Senate Republicans are ramming through an illegitimate Court nomination with the election on the line.
The NWHN applauds the recent decision by District Court Judge Theodore Chuang to allow pregnant people to receive medication abortion care through telehealth, including receiving mifepristone through the mail.
Patients are turning to telehealth appointments and online pharmacies for routine medical care during the COVID-19 outbreak without having to leave their homes. But for most pregnant people seeking safe and effective abortion pills, the FDA has created a Byzantine set of rules that delay or block access to care.

The NWHN is calling on the FDA to lift politically motivated, medically unnecessary restrictions on the abortion pill right now and let pregnant people receive the abortion pill through the mail so that they can get the pill where they take the pill, at home.
The FDA says pregnant people can meet with their doctors remotely and have their abortion at home — but first, they must travel during a global pandemic just to pick up their pills.
