FDA Changes Label On Abortion Pill, Increasing Options For Women

A change from the Food and Drug Administration means more abortion options for women across the country.
The FDA approved a label change for Mifeprex, a drug that can end pregnancy in the early stages.
The new label lowers the recommended dose and increases the number of days into the pregnancy it can be used. Previously, the drug could only be used up to 49 days into a pregnancy. Now that window is extended to 70 days.
