AbstractPhysically, it is just a little white pill. But oh, what it could do: take abortion out of easily-identified clinics and disburse it to hospitals and doctor's offices, making what is so often called a "a private choice" actually private. And deprive pro-life activists of targets, publicity, and possibly support. For this potential to alter the current landscape, the New York Times Magazine has called it "The Little White Bombshell." But at the moment, RU-486 is available at only a handful of clinics throughout the country, while everyone else is waiting for final approval of the drug from the FDA.
