Mifepristone blocks 10 types of cancer cells in laboratory

This is a political hot potato! I have been successfully taking this drug since Feb 2005 to block a recurrent meningioma primary brain tumor. It has been in remission for six years now. Thanks to FDA and IRB approval I have my own IND number and investigational clinical trial. I need your help to change our medical health care delivery system so that qualified medical doctors, not politicans from the religious right, can determine our US modern medical treatments and drug choices, not right wing investors and insurance companies.
Its the money power of the religious right in our US political system that prohibited the use of this life saving drug by cancer patients and denied our qualified medical oncology doctors in the US permission to prescribe the drug. Some people strongly object to one of its other uses as "the morning after pill" and they want to make it illegal, even though it has many other livesaving uses in medical health care like treating uterine fibroid patients too. Our health care MEDICARE/MEDICAID system could save tons of money if millions of women could take this drug to treat and shrink their fibroids instead of having a hysterectomy.
