I wanted to reply to you directly but you don't have a valid email address.
Anyways, you might try to contact the following companies:
Roussell Uclaf (the French producer of RU486, owned partially by Hoechst;
I don't know whether they have an American subsidiary (?))
Celanese Corp. (an American company owned by Hoechst)
In my experience companies are quite generous with rare substances.
