Backup Plan For Abortion Pill

Planned Parenthood of Illinois says they have a “backup plan” for medication abortion depending on future court rulings. The abortion pill mifepristone remains available for the time being after an appeals court partially blocked last week’s ruling by a Texas judge that suspended the approval. The current procedure of a two-pill combination of mifepristone and misoprostol [[ my-soh-PRAH-stole ]] would be replaced by a misoprostol-only regimen. Planned Parenthood of Illinois officials say misoprostol by itself is not as effective as the combination.
