There is a major new regulatory change this morning that could help make abortions more accessible in the United States.
The FDA is expected to allow the sale of an abortion pill at certified retail pharmacies.
The drug "Mifepristone" is the first of two drugs administered in a medical abortion.
Previously, the pill was only available through mail or by specially certified doctors.
Women will still need a prescription, but the number of pharmacies that can offer the drug will be more widely available.
CVS says it’s now reviewing the updated requirements.
