Abortion Pill Mifepristone Notice
We inform, you decide.
Updated 8-16-23: Currently, the chemical “abortion pill” regimen approved by the FDA is comprised of two different drugs: mifepristone and misoprostol. A chemical abortion uses both of these drugs to first end a pregnancy and then expel the fetus from the body.
The Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine has sued the FDA for their failure to properly test the chemical abortion drug mifepristone, also known as “RU486” and “Mifeprex”.
The 5th US Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld the ruling to restrict the availability of Mifepristone. The court determined that the FDA is endangering girls’ and women’s health by not properly testing its effects prior to launching the drug for market use back in 2000. The court’s decision will also limit access to the “abortion pill” to 7 weeks instead of 10 and requires that it be prescribed by a physician.
The case will now move to the Supreme Court where the final ruling will be made. Any new ruling by the 5th US Circuit Court of Appeals will not go into effect until the Supreme Court makes a ruling on the case.
