The Abortion Pill Is Here, but Few May Actually See It
Another thing doctors may not welcome or be ready for is becoming a target for anti-abortion protesters. Some groups already are threatening to publicize the names of doctors willing to perform medical abortions and picket their offices.
Ron Fitzsimmons, executive director of the National Coalition of Abortion Providers, says his group has heard from plenty of interested people, but says "the phone isn't exactly ringing off the hook," with doctors saying they definitely want to provide pill-induced abortions in their office.
"It's a good option," Fitzsimmons says. "But it's not the revolution that some people have predicted."
