Advocates Applauds FDA’s Decision to Expand Mifepristone Access

“We applaud the FDA’s decision to make mifepristone accessible in pharmacies,” said Diana Thu-Thao Rhodes, Vice President for Policy, Partnership, and Organizing at Advocates for Youth.  “Young people are committed to building access to abortion, and ensuring medication abortion is easily available is a huge part of that. Whether it’s by mail-order, in pharmacies, or in clinics, everyone should be able to get timely care at a time and place that works for them.”

Advocates for Youth is proud to be a part of a coalition working toward changing the mifepristone dispensation requirements and expanding access for abortion pills. Check out our youth-created medication abortion explainers.
