Supreme Court rebuffs Abortion-Pill challenge

abortion pill reversalPro-life doctors challenged the Food and Drug Administration’s approval of mifepristone, also known as the Abortion Pill, since the drug has a high rate of complications.

Specifically, 28 women died from taking Mifepristone. Another 4213 reported adverse events; another 1048 were hospitalized; another 604 suffered blood loss, requiring transfusion; and another 414 suffered infections.

In a unanimous 9-0 decision, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled the doctors didn’t have standing, a setback to the pro-life cause.

Justice Brett Kavanaugh wrote the decision, saying that the plaintiffs put forward “several complicated causation theories to connect FDA’s actions to the plaintiffs alleged injuries in fact,” but that none “suffices to establish Article III standing.”

Pulse executive director, Maggie DeWitte, reacted:

“It is a major disappointment to learn of the ruling.  Mifepristone is a dangerous drug and is unsafe for women.  Not allowing commonsense safeguards and standards to be in place is going to lead to more women being hurt physically, psychologically and emotionally. Despite this set back, we will continue to educate on the damage of this drug and pray for the day that women are protected.”
