The fight to save babies is taking place on a number of fronts.
Most people hear about the political battles raging but there are also important cases in the courts as well.
And now Joe Biden is sweating bullets after a Texas lawsuit claims the FDA’s approval of abortion pills was unlawful.
In a sickening statistic, it was recently revealed that about half of all abortions committed in the U.S. are now being done through chemical abortion pills.
A first-of-its kind lawsuit
And one of the major reasons for that is the wide availability of these dangerous drugs thanks to the FDA.
But that could all change if this lawsuit goes through.
That’s why pro-abortion radicals and the Biden administration are sounding the alarm after a Texas lawsuit was filed that challenges the decades-old Food and Drug Administration approval of mifepristone, the first step of the FDA’s two-pill abortion process.
In the first-of-its-kind lawsuit, four doctors who treat pregnant and post-abortive women and four national medical associations argue the FDA’s accelerated approval of the drug more than 20 years ago in 2000 was unlawful.
The Alliance Defending Freedom, a national nonprofit public interest law firm, filed the suit and contend the only way the FDA was able to accelerate the approval of mifepristone is by classifying pregnancy as a “serious or life-threatening illness” for which the abortion drug provides “meaningful therapeutic benefit.”
That’s right, in order to promote the mass chemical killing of babies, they will even say pregnancy is an illness, and a life-threatening one at that.
The plaintiffs further argue that with the approval of mifepristone, the FDA completely ignored the potential deadly effects these pills have on the developing bodies of adolescent girls.
They also cite the negligence of the FDA, which completely disregarded evidence that chemical abortion drugs cause more complications than surgical abortions, even according to the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute.
ADF senior counsel Erik Baptist said, “The FDA’s approval of chemical abortion drugs has always stood on shaky legal and moral ground, and after years of evading responsibility, it’s time for the government to do what it’s legally required to do: Protect the health and safety of vulnerable women and girls.”
And the group recently tweeted – “Doctors are speaking out: every day, FDA-approved chemical abortion drugs injure women and girls. Americans deserve better.”
The groups behind the lawsuit are the groups the Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine, the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists (AAPLOG), the Christian Medical & Dental Associations, and the American College of Pediatricians.
AAPLOG board member and CEO-elect Dr. Christina Francis recently told Newsmax she has seen firsthand the harm being done to women and girls by the abortion pill.
“Women and girls are being endangered and injured every day in our country through these dangerous chemical abortion drugs,” she said.
“I am a board-certified OB/GYN and I practice in an in-patient setting and I, personally, along with many of my colleagues, have seen women and girls come in through our emergency rooms with severe complications from these drugs. Complications that should be being addressed by the FDA. Complications like heavy bleeding and hemorrhage and the need for emergency surgery, the need for admission to the hospital for blood transfusions and infections, and even one of our members took care of a woman who likely will not be able to have children in the future because of major complications that required two major surgeries to correct these complications due to these chemical abortion drugs,” Francis added.
Expect this case to be the first of many that go after the FDA’s illegal actions in approving a drug so dangerous all in order to please the radical pro-abortion lobby.
