Biden Administration Issues Rule Allowing Deadly Abortion Drugs by Mail
Federal Government Cowers from Responsibility to Regulate Drug Safety Under Pressure from Abortion Industry
Washington, DC – Today, the FDA released new rules loosening the safety regulations related to the dispensation of the abortion-causing drug Mifepristone. Lila Rose, Founder & President of Live Action released the following statement:
“The trauma of an at-home abortion not only destroys the life of a preborn child and all her limitless potential, but also puts her mother at grave medical risk. Because of the FDA’s unscientific and dangerous decision today, our own U.S. Postal Service will continue to be a lethal pipeline for both women and their children.
This decision will result in even more death. According to the Center for Disease Control, 43.7% of all abortions in the U.S. were chemical abortions, with that increasing by 12.5% between 2018 and 2019. We know that over 3.7 million children and at least 24 mothers have already been killed by the abortion pill. By permanently lifting the safety requirements underage girls could order the pills online and dangerously self-abort at school or alone in their bathrooms. Or worse, predatory abusers can order the pills for them to kill their preborn babies, compounding the abuse. The abortion industry is intentionally misinforming the public about the true consequences of a chemical abortion, and putting women and their pre-born children in danger, rather than focusing on the support and care they need.”
