I Prayed have prayed
Lord, please forgive our nation of the terrible sin of legalized abortion. May you deliver us from this evil, in Jesus' Name.

On Thursday, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) removed restrictions from the distribution of the abortion pill, allowing it to be given out in different settings rather than the method by which it has been issued in the past.

The FDA stated:

After conducting a review of the single, shared system Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) for mifepristone, known as the Mifepristone REMS Program, FDA determined that the data support modification of the REMS to reduce burden on patient access and the health care delivery system and to ensure the benefits of the product outweigh the risks. The modifications to the Mifepristone REMS Program will consist of:

  • Removing the requirement that mifepristone be dispensed only in certain healthcare settings, specifically clinics, medical offices, and hospitals (referred to as the “in-person dispensing requirement”)
  • Adding a requirement that pharmacies that dispense the drug be certified

 

The new development will now allow the medication abortion to be sent through the mail and even potentially purchased or acquired online.

Pro-life advocates have pointed out the dangers of medication abortion and stressed the importance of such a rule that requires women to be examined in-person by a medical professional prior to undergoing this method of abortion. In addition, many have pointed out the high opportunity for abuse if human traffickers or abusers get their hands on the abortion pills through the mail without a woman being seen by a doctor.

Pro-life advocates have spoken out against the decision and pointed to the fact that the FDA didn’t pay attention to information that shows mifepristone results in more women ending up in the emergency room.

“Today’s FDA decision ignores several sets of much more substantial data which confirms the abortion pill is a significant public health threat, and the real-world data suggests that threat is growing,” said Dr. James Studnicki, vice president of data analytics at Charlotte Lozier Institute, a pro-life group.

As The New York Times reported, “In 19 states, mostly in the South and the Midwest, telemedicine visits for medication abortion are banned, and these and other conservative states can be expected to pass other laws to further curtail access to abortion pills.”

On Thursday, Axios Austin reported on several states that have already cut back on the ability for people to get abortion pills.

This FDA action is no surprise given the Biden administration obsession with abortion rights and the recent court challenges in the states and Supreme Court. We now need to know which pharmaceutical companies are producing these drugs and what insurance and government funding is attached to this new face of abortion. This culture of death must be exposed and attacked at every opportunity.
