Operation Rescue Joins Legal Battle: FDA's Abandonment of Safeguards for Chemical Abortions

Operation Rescue
March 5, 2024

WASHINGTON, March 5, 2024 /Standard Newswire/ -- Operation Rescue is pleased to announce it has joined the Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine (AHM) in its battle against the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its reckless loosening of restrictions on the chemical abortion drug Mifeprex.

The American Center for Law and Justice has filed an amicus brief on behalf of Operation Rescue and West Virginia Right to Life in support of the Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine in the appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. 

“Operation Rescue has worked for decades utilizing peaceful, legal strategies for exposing illegal violations of abortion clinics and abortionists that endanger women and end the lives of preborn babies,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “We have been extremely disheartened by the neglect and refusal of various agencies to enforce health and safety regulations, and the FDA’s actions are certainly not an outlier to that disappointment.”

Specific to chemical abortion, Operation Rescue has been instrumental in documenting the dangers of the drugs for many years. Incomplete abortions, hemorrhaging, and ruptured ectopic pregnancies are all common complications. Even the FDA has acknowledged that at least 32 women have died after taking the abortion inducing drugs since 2000.

The original 113-page AHM lawsuit on which the appeal is based, filed in November 2022, argues that the FDA failed “to abide by its legal obligations to protect the health, safety, and welfare of women and girls when the agency authorized the chemical abortion drugs mifepristone and misoprostol for use in the United States and subsequently eliminated necessary safeguards for pregnant women and girls who undergo this dangerous drug regimen.”The U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral argument on the appeals filed by the FDA and Danco Laboratories, the manufacturer of the drug, on March 26, 2024, according to the monthly argument calendar.

“We look forward to seeing judicial evidence that our nation protects vulnerable citizens instead of recklessly endangering women to achieve its political goals,” added Newman. 

Operation Rescue is one of the leading pro-life Christian activist organizations in the U.S. Our goal is to expose abortion abuses, demand enforcement, save innocent lives, and build an Abortion-Free America.  Click here to support Operation Rescue.
