Safety and effectiveness of first-trimester medication abortion in the United States

Since mifepristone was first approved in 2000, state legislatures have passed a number of laws that restrict access to medication abortion. These include limitations on the types of providers that can offer medication abortion, whether medication abortion can be provided through telemedicine, and home self-administration, as well as requirements that providers use the U.S. FDA (Food and Drug Administration)-approved regimen for medication abortion, which was outdated until a March 2016 update.
