Beyond Roe: Medication Abortion


Taking mifepristone with misoprostol is a safe, effective, and common way to have a medication abortion. This combination has been available in the United States since 2000. Mifepristone with misoprostol can be used up to 11 weeks of pregnancy, when the vast majority of abortions in this country occur, and can also be easily offered in primary care settings.

As we prepare for the Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v Jackson Women’s Health OrganizationRHAP is urging and supporting clinicians and health centers in states where abortion will continue to be available to consider providing abortion care. Creating new access points for abortion care in states that are likely to experience a surge in demand is one critical way we can help ensure that those who need care get it.
