Abortion Pill" Closer to U.S. Use
On March 4th, The Population Council announced that plans to use a company called Advances for Choice to market mifepristone (formerly known as RU 486). The step came after The Population Council settled legal issues with a business partner and created a new company to introduce the drug into the United States. The company said in a statement, "Together, we hope to achieve both FDA approval and drug availability by the end of 1997."
