Tell AmerisourceBergen: Distribute medication abortion in all states where abortion is legal!
AmerisourceBergen, the country's sole distributor of the safe and vital abortion pill mifepristone, has stated that it will not distribute its medication to 31 states despite it being legal to do so.
We need healthcare decisions to be made by families in consultation with medical professionals, not right-wing politicians who want to control people's bodies.
Add your name to tell AmerisourceBergen to continue to provide mifepristone to patients in need.
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. Mifepristone is still legal, and it's critical for health care—we can't let right-wing tactics limit access to this medication.
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%. And let's be clear: despite efforts of right-wing judges, it is still legal, as well as being safe, common, and essential.
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.
