Abor­tion providers sue FDA in a Vir­ginia fed­er­al court over mifepri­s­tone re­stric­tions

Abor­tion providers in Vir­ginia, Mon­tana and Kansas sued the FDA on Mon­day in fed­er­al court over mifepri­s­tone pre­scrib­ing re­stric­tions, called Risk Eval­u­a­tion and Mit­i­ga­tion Strat­e­gy, or REMS.

The long­stand­ing REMS for mifepri­s­tone are un­der fire in the Dis­trict Court for the West­ern Dis­trict of Vir­ginia, where providers are try­ing to force the FDA to drop the re­stric­tions. The law­suit was filed on be­half of the providers, in­clud­ing Whole Woman’s Health Al­liance, by the Cen­ter for Re­pro­duc­tive Rights, a New York-based le­gal and ad­vo­ca­cy group.
