Press Conference Held on RU 486

On Wednesday morning (3-13), longtime reproductive rights champion Lawrence Lader held a press conference in New York regarding the French abortion pill, RU 486. Lader, president of Abortion Rights Mobilization (ARM) announced that the pill will be tested at three prominent clinics. Laders press release stated: Confronting the possibility of an attempted ban on RU 486 after the November elections, Abortion Rights Mobilization (ARM) will make this critical pill available to at least 2,000 women after FDA clearance. The great advantage of the pill is that it can be administered in a doctors office and vastly increase the privacy of women. Lader is the author of A Private Matter: RU 486 and the Abortion Crisis.
