Mifepristone (abortion pill)According to a recent court decision, abortion proponents may be responsible for the serious complications that result from chemical abortions.

A federal judge in Maryland has temporarily suspended a Food and Drug Administration rule that requires a woman seeking a chemical abortion to meet with medical personnel at their office. Eric Scheidler of the Pro-Life Action League tells OneNewsNow the abortion industry is trying to exploit the COVID-19 pandemic.

"They're using this crisis, trying to claim that any kind of commonsense regulation around these very dangerous abortion drugs are somehow an undue burden," the pro-lifer relays. "They're trying to use the undue burden standard of the Supreme Court here to say that having a doctor prescribe a medicine is some kind of infringement."

Aside from the serious side effects that accompany the chemical abortion regimen, a woman with an ectopic pregnancy could die from it. Scheidler points out that the FDA established the rules of usage based on safety of the patient.

Scheidler, Eric (Pro-Life Action League)"Regulations that are put into place surrounding how these drugs are distributed are there to keep the American people safe, but Planned Parenthood doesn't care about that," he asserts. "The abortion industry doesn't care about that, and our friends in the courts and the media don't, either. So it is very much an exploitation of the pandemic to try and force through a policy that they've been seeking for years."

Planned Parenthood actually wants abortion drugs dispensed through telemedicine and for them to be sold over the counter.
