RU486 Approved

Yesterday, the Food and Drug Administration approved the abortion drug, RU486. NPR's Joanne Silberner explains how the drug works and how it will be dispensed. The drug will only be available from doctors, not from pharmacies. It's expected to cost about the same amount as a surgical abortion.
