Tell AmerisourceBergen: Distribute medication abortion in all states where abortion is legal!
Distribute medication abortion in all states where abortion is legal!
Why is this important?
Recent reports reveal that AmerisourceBergen--the country’s sole distributor of mifepristone, the safe and vital abortion pill--circulated a list to corporate clients of 31 states where it will not distribute the pill to pharmacies.1
It’s a cruel plan that, if implemented, will have devastating consequences on people of color, people with low incomes, disabled people, immigrants, and those who live in medically underserved communities--all of whom already face barriers to receiving abortion care.
Despite the lies of anti-abortion extremists, mifepristone, which has been widely and safely used by millions of people for 23 years, accounts for more than half of all abortions in the U.S. and is a necessary medication for those experiencing miscarriages as well. It is supported by hundreds of studies and has a proven safety rating of 99%.2,3
That’s why we need to let the pharmaceutical giant know that we are onto it and will not let up the pressure until it answers to public health needs rather than extremist bullies.
