In 'Long Overdue' Ruling, Canada Approves Medical Abortion Pill

Sarah Lazare, staff writer

In a decision hailed as "great news" and "long overdue," the regulator Health Canada announced Thursday that it has approved use of the medical abortion pill known as RU-486, sold under the brand name Mifegymiso.

"The decision to authorize Mifegymiso for the Canadian market was made further to a thorough review of the data package provided by the sponsor that supported the safety, efficacy and quality of the product," said the agency.
