. US agency says women can get abortion pill via mail « JO LEE MAGAZINE

TULSA WORLD – The Food and Drug Administration announced the policy change a day earlier in a letter to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, one of several medical groups that has sued over the restriction put in place under the Trump administration. The FDA’s acting head, Dr. Janet Woodcock, said an agency review of recent studies “do not appear to show increases in serious safety concerns,” when women take the pill without first visiting a health facility and discussing the drug’s potential risks, including internal bleeding. The change clears the way for women to get a prescription for the pill — mifepristone — via telemedicine and receive it through the mail.
