Women & Doctors Speak Out at the Court: #WomensHealthMatters 

Washington, D.C. – Today the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in FDA v. Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine and Danco v. Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine, petitions in the landmark case in which a group of doctors are challenging the FDA’s reckless approval of mail-order abortion drugs.

Ingrid Skop, M.D., FACOG, a board-certified OB-GYN who serves as vice president and director of medical affairs at Charlotte Lozier Institute, will attend oral arguments. Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America President Marjorie Dannenfelser will also speak at the #WomensHealthMatters rally taking place from 8 a.m.-noon outside the Supreme Court.

The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals previously found that the FDA likely violated the law when it loosened safety standards on abortion pills and allowed them to be sent through the mail.

SBA Pro-Life America’s State Policy Director Katie Daniel commented:

“This case is about the harm inflicted on countless women and girls by dangerous mail-order abortion drugs. It is the story of how the FDA, the very agency tasked with ensuring Americans have safe medicines, put politics and industry profits before health and safety. The abortion lobby and their political allies pretend that women like Elizabeth, Leslie and Kelly, who have suffered lasting trauma from taking abortion drugs, don’t exist. They will try to distract from the reality that, under Biden’s FDA, abortion drugs can be sent through the mail to children. These high-risk drugs are being mailed without verifying that the buyer isn’t an abuser or trafficker, and without so much as a follow-up visit to a doctor to check for life-threatening complications – even to states where life is protected by law.

“Holding the FDA accountable is not the end of health innovation in America – far from it. It is the beginning of restoring public trust, lost over decades due to their reckless flouting of the law and their own rules.”

Dr. Skop added:

“The FDA’s decision to weaken commonsense safeguards, removing doctors from the process, shows they prioritize ending unborn life over the health and safety of women. As a practicing OB-GYN with over 30 years of experience, I have seen how abortion drugs have harmed my patients, both mothers and their unborn children. I have cared for many of these women in the ER, even though abortion advocates pretend they don’t exist. Their stories must be heard, but abortion advocates, working with corporate media, have gaslighted them into silence. I hope the Supreme Court holds the FDA accountable for their reckless actions.”

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. For more information visit
