FDA easing guidelines on use of so-called 'abortion pill'
The FDA is easing the guidelines for the use of the so-called "abortion pill." The new guidelines allow women to use the drug Mifeprex later into a pregnancy, with a smaller dosage and with fewer doctor visits. The guidelines may complicate laws in several states aimed at restricting medically-induced abortions. The FDA says the move was based on medical science.
