Abortion pills that patients got via telehealth and the mail are safe, study finds


A study published in Nature Medicine has found that abortion pills, mifepristone and misoprostol, prescribed through telehealth are safe and effective. The research studied over 6,000 patients who received the medications via mail after a virtual consultation, finding that the treatment was successful for 97.7% of patients with no serious adverse events in 99.7% of cases. The findings support the Food and Drug Administration’s assessment of the safety of medication abortion, which is currently being challenged by an anti-abortion rights group in the Supreme Court. The study’s release coincides with the Court hearing arguments on the case on March 26, which could impact access to medication abortion nationwide.
