Although Planned Parenthood clinics throughout the country offer the abortion pill, other abortion providers were not overly enthusiastic about the abortion pill when it first came out. Although Planned Parenthood has always maintained that abortion pills are safe (despite the death of Holly Patterson and others) the way that the abortion pill was rushed through FDA trials has led to some providers being concerned about its safety. Here, a Planned Parenthood official complains about how slow providers were in providing the abortion pill.
“It’s disappointing that the pill is not moving faster and gaining wider acceptance, but the mind-set of health care providers is that they still need to be convinced this is a viable, safe alternative to surgical abortion.”
