Oppose Congressional Attempts to Restrict Mifepristone (Mifeprex)

In one of the most significant advances in women's reproductive health 
in decades, on September 28, 2000 the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 
granted final approval to mifepristone (formerly known as RU 486) for 
the termination of very early pregnancy.

Anti-choice lawmakers, led by Rep. Tom Coburn (R-OK) and Sen. Tim
Hutchinson (R-AR), immediately denounced the FDA decision and introduced 
bills designed to continue to block Mifeprex's availability to U.S. 
women.  Senators and Representatives need to hear your strong opposition 
to this misguided legislation.

The legislation would severely restrict the providers who can prescribe 
Mifeprex, undermining mifepristone's promise to expand women's ability 
to make reproductive-health decisions with privacy and dignity.   The 
effect of the bills' restrictions will be that in many cities women will 
continue to endure the anti-choice intimidation, harassment, and even 
violence that sometimes surround abortion clinics.

FDA approval is the universally recognized gold standard of a drug's 
safety and efficacy.   In attempting to re-write the FDA's approval of 
Mifeprex, anti-choice legislators are inserting congressional politics 
into matters properly delegated to FDA scientists and doctors.

In a matter of seconds, you can send an e-mail to your Senators and
Representative to urge them to oppose this misguided legislation.  To

threatening your reproductive rights, go to
