The new drug is actually chemically related to the abortion drug RU-486 (mifepristone), and it has a high likelihood acting as an abortifacient. In other words, the drug may act to prevent pregnancy, not just by preventing ovulation, but by aborting a new life. In this podcast, our guest is Dr. Jeff Lewis, Assistant Dean of the School of Pharmacy at Cedarville University.
