New York Times writer advocates for abortion pill by mail, flouting FDA safety regulations

A recent New York Times opinion piece suggests abortionists should dispense the abortion pill through the mail, in violation of the Food and Drug Administration’s Risk Evaluation Mitigation Strategy (REMS).

The Times piece quotes extensively from the co-founders of abortion advocacy group Plan C, which publishes a “report card” encouraging women to get abortion pills from foreign websites like Aid Access, which sell them illegally. Several of these websites have received FDA warning letters or abuse complaints. The FDA specifically warns women against purchasing abortion pills online for safety reasons.

Plan C encourages doctors to “take the first step for mailing mifepristone: registering with Danco Laboratories or GenBioPro, the only F.D.A.-approved manufacturers.”
