FDA Likely Broke the Law in Approving Mail-Order Abortion Pills

Washington, D.C. – In response to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals decision today in Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine v. FDA, Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America affirmed the Court’s finding that the FDA likely violated the law when it loosened safety standards on abortion pills and allowed them to be sent through the mail.

Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America’s State Policy Director Katie Daniel reacted:

“The FDA ignored science and its own rules when it rubber-stamped Democrats’ reckless mail-order abortion scheme. Americans strongly object to sending abortion drugs through the mail without the in-person supervision of a doctor – that’s common sense. But under multiple Democrat administrations, the FDA threw out common sense and played political games with people’s lives.

“Mail-order abortion pills put thousands of women and girls at risk of serious complications from abortion pills every year. We won’t rest until the FDA and the profit-driven abortion industry are held accountable for the suffering they’ve inflicted on women and girls, as well as the deaths of countless unborn children.”

In-depth polling conducted by CRC Research for SBA Pro-Life America shows that Americans do not believe the FDA’s assertions that mail-order abortion drugs are safe – including 75% who agree the FDA should have performed studies focused on girls under the age of 18 before approving the abortion pill for minors.

Ingrid Skop, M.D., F.A.C.O.G., a board-certified OB-GYN who has practiced in Texas for nearly 30 years and serves as vice president and director of medical affairs at Charlotte Lozier Institute, wrote in an op-ed:

“Like approximately 90 percent of my fellow OB-GYNs, I don’t perform elective abortions. But I’ve personally treated many women for complications from the abortion pill (mifepristone and misoprostol), including performing emergency surgery on a woman who bled for two months after receiving these drugs…Those promoting unsupervised DIY abortion pills clearly prioritize the deaths of unborn children over the health and safety of women. I hope the FDA will once and for all be held accountable to its task of protecting the American public from this dangerous drug.”
