Retail pharmacies, like CVS and Walgreens, will be allowed to fill prescriptions for mifepristone—the first of two pills used for a medical or medication abortion—for the first time in the United States, according to a recent update provided by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The permanent regulatory change is expected to increase abortion access throughout the country following the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade last year; the landmark case guaranteed the federal right to abortion since 1973 and was officially reversed in June 2022.
Tell Congress to Support the Abortion Justice Act!
We need to guarantee the legal right to abortion and ensure that everyone can get abortion care without politicians creating barriers.
That’s why we need the Abortion Justice Act, a groundbreaking federal bill that protects people’s right to make their own healthcare decisions about abortion, improves availability and affordability, and prevents politicians from creating barriers to care.
