When a federal judge ruled last Friday that the Food and Drug Administration had improperly approved the abortion medication mifepristone in 2000, it put access to the drug in jeopardy. The medical community considers the medicine safe and effective based on years of data and clinical experience.

While courts consider legal challenges, NPR is reporting on the role this medication has played in Americans' health care.

Please share your story with us if you have used medications for an abortion or for treatment of a miscarriage. What was your experience trying to get the prescription and taking the pills? Did you face obstacles getting care you needed? What impact did it have on your life?
