Statement on FDA Changes to Medication Abortion Regulations

Today, the FDA lifted some of the restrictions on medication abortion, and we welcome this first step. Medication abortion has a decades-long track record of safety and efficacy. Young people need and have the right to this option.

Worse, in 19 states, unnecessary restrictions like  in-person visit requirements or restrictions on telehealth still stand. Young people are working to ensure everyone has access to the abortion care they need, whether it’s at an abortion clinic or at home.  They won’t stop until we see an end to ALL unnecessary restrictions and ALL young people can get the care they need.
