a 5-day-after contraceptive in our future...hopefully soon?

Five Mornings After: FDA Meeting To Discuss New Contraceptive

A controversial contraceptive may soon be approved by the Food and Drug Administration. According to the Washington Post, ella, a morning-after pill that works for up to five days after unprotected sex, is already approved for use in 22 countries. Next week the FDA is meeting to discuss approval of the drug for the US market.

The all-lowercase drug (chemical name ulipristal acetate) is made by HRA Pharma, a French company who say that the drug has little in the way of side effects. But some conservatives feel that the drug is being mismarketed.

Pro-life advocates, especially those who believe that life starts at the moment of conception, feel that a pill taken five days after sex is an abortion pill, not a contraceptive. They argue that many women see a difference between a contraceptive and an abortion, and believe that ella's manufacturers are trying to blur that line. Reproductive health advocates say the opposite, however:

"The people who are opposing this are not just opposed to abortion," said Amy Allina, program director at the National Women's Health Network. "They also opposed contraception and they are trying to confuse the issue."

From www.washingtonpost.com via clp.ly

Ulipristal acetate is chemically very similar to RU-496, the abortion pill that works for up to nine weeks into a pregnancy. Skeptics of ella believe that, taken in high enough doses, it too could trigger an abortion. HRA Pharma says that the drug has been tested for the first five days after sex, and that there is no evidence suggesting that ella would work as anything but a contraceptive.

They expect a long battle for approval, however, since Americans have such polarizing opinions about abortion.

Great news for lazy people, for whom RU-486 was a bit too immediate.
