All I know is this: my local pharmacy has to keep some cold medications out of reach of the general public because feckless teens get high off the seemingly innocuous OTC drugs. Just imagine what sort of chaos that an OTC abortifacient would cause. Would the FDA be willing to clean up this sort of mess? The FDA better get a "Plan B" of its own if it honestly thinks it can have this kind of drug on the OTC market and keep it out of the hands of any subpopulation.
