Mifepristone is safe and effective, and has been safely used by millions

Advocates for Youth condemns and rejects the 5th circuit’s ruling that would limit mifepristone availability. The case against mifepristone is groundless, and was fabricated as part of the anti-abortion movement’s efforts to end legal abortion everywhere in this country. Mifepristone is part of a safe and effective regimen for abortion care, and has been safely used by millions since it was approved over 20 years ago.

Young people have the right to pregnancy options and that includes the right to whichever medication abortion regimen that is best for them. We aren’t going to let abortion access disappear in this country. Through clinic access and through self-managed abortion, medication abortion is and will continue to be available for those who need it.

While this decision remains on hold as litigation continues, medication abortion, including mifepristone, is still available without additional restrictions and will continue to provide people with the abortion care they need and want. We demand that the Supreme Court overturn these ridiculous and unnecessary restrictions for good.
