THE WHITE HOUSE
Office of the Vice President
STATEMENT BY THE VICE PRESIDENT
I am pleased with the Food and Drug Administration's decision to approve mifepristone. After careful review and clinical tests, the Food and Drug Administration has determined that its use is safe and effective. The review and approval of this drug is consistent with the Food and Drug Administration's mission as a science-based public health regulatory agency.
Today's decision is not about politics, but the health and safety of American women and a woman's fundamental right to choose.
