Biden’s FDA just approved the first over-the-counter abortion pill without this vital protection

Joe Biden is going all-out to become the President known for killing the most children.

Every effort he has made recently has been to promote abortion-on-demand regardless of the deadly repercussions.

And now Biden’s FDA just approved the first over-the-counter abortion pill without this vital protection.

The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) announced it has approved the first over-the-counter birth control pill, with abortifacient potential, which starts next year without a prescription and regardless of age.

Getting around the law

The FDA has approved Opill, a progestin-based drug manufactured by Irish company Perrigo. 

Ever since last year’s U.S. Supreme Court Dobbs decision, which overturned Roe v. Wade, leftists and pro-abortion extremists have been trying every avenue possible to skirt the law and still provide abortion access.

This is especially true in the 14 states that have all but banned abortion-on-demand, and the 10-12 others that have put some limits on it.

One way they are getting around the law is to provide easier distribution of both abortion pills and birth control pills as one of the most effective ways to preserve abortion “access,” even at the expense of patient safety.

For example, the Biden administration’s FDA has eliminated the requirement that abortion pills only be dispensed in-person to the women taking them.

And the Biden Justice Department has decided that abortion pills may be freely mailed across the country, despite the fact that a provision of a 150-year-old law called the Comstock Act clearly says the opposite.

Using birth control as abortion

Now the pro-abortion lobby is working overtime to hand out birth control pills like candy, to any woman, or even little girl, who wants them.

And these Progestin-based contraceptives like Opill and Plan B are commonly promoted as “alternatives to abortion” because they supposedly prevent pregnancy rather than end it. 

The FDA has even gone so far as to amend Plan B’s label to “clarify” that it was not an abortifacient. 

But the facts, and science, say different.

Such drugs do in fact have abortifacient potential, and whether they prevent conception or abort depends almost solely on when they are taken in a woman’s cycle.

Not only that, but the side effects of these drugs, in addition to potentially killing a baby, can be deadly to the woman.

According to the FDA, common side effects of the pill include bleeding, headaches, dizziness, nausea and cramps, and the possibility of tumors.

But to the radical pro-aborts none of this matters.

And they simply do not care how many women are hurt or even killed in the Left’s mad dash to abort babies.

An out-of-control FDA promoting the radical leftist agenda

This is not the first time the FDA has come under fire for their less than scientific decisions.

Many doctors wonder why the FDA has allowed black-boxed drugs like fluoroquinolones to remain on the market despite the well-known damage they do to individuals.

And the FDA has of course been accused of putting political ideology over sound medicine on a long list of other issues as well, from approving COVID-19 shots for children to gutting restrictions on sexually-active homosexuals donating blood.

Their response to COVID was more a response to political pressure than to anything medical.

Now their response to abortion restrictions is based on nothing but ideology and is being done at the clear expense to women’s health.
