According to Bloomberg, the “abortion pill,” i.e., mifepristone (RU-486), is safe and effective but its use is hampered by all sorts of restrictions imposed by the FDA. As a result, it is rarely used in the United States. If Roe v. Wade were to be overturned (which is higly possible, if not probable), the Biden administration and the Democrats could react by removing these restrictions. That would defang a lot of red states’ attempts to ban abortion since women would be able to obtain the pill by mail from providers in blue states. The red states would of course outlaw this but the Constitution gives Congress the power to regulate interstate commerce so they should fail in the courts (not a given with today’s Supreme Court). In any case, it should be a winning political strategy for Democrats since polls show a majority favoring abortion rights. They would gain votes among moderates without losing any (the anti-abortionists aren’t going to vote for Democrats anyway).
