Clinic given TGA approval to dispense RU486

Arise, sisters. Freedom from your uteri has come at last!

From the ABC:

A sexual health clinic has been given access to the drug for its clinics in New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, the ACT and Western Australia.

National clinical adviser for Marie Stopes International, Jill Michelson, says 14 of its doctors have now been given authorised access by the Therapeutic Goods Administration.

Ms Michelson says since 2006 some public hospitals have had the drug, but now women will have wider access as an option in the first nine weeks of pregnancy.

As long as Anna Bligh doesn’t get wind of this, we’ll be much closer to being totally free to make our own reproductive choices without interference and the stigma associated with it.
