Plan B morning-after pill 3Drug peddlers who are selling abortion drugs online beware: the government's eyes are on you.

The federal government is prosecuting the very first individual, a New York state resident, for selling RU486 via the internet.

Ursula Wing contracted with a drug manufacturer in India to sell foreign-made drugs online and deliver to a buyer's home by mail. She is charged with violating interstate commerce laws and conspiracy to defraud the United States.

Steven H. Aden, general counsel at Americans United for Life, calls Wing “dangerous” because the drugs she is selling are not screened by the USDA and its safety requirements.

“We wholeheartedly applaud the administration's commitment,” Aden says, “to keeping women safe from bad criminal purveyors like this.”

Aden tells OneNewsNow that drug peddlers such as Wing are not trying to advance women's rights but are trying to make a quick buck.

Wing is the first person be prosecuted from a group that received letters from the federal government warning that they must halt the practice.

According to Reason.com, Wing sold two-step abortion drugs mifepristone and misoprostol. The drugs cannot be sold in pharmacies but must be given to patients under close supervision, the article said, citing FDA rules.
