The Family Foundation Urges U.S. Supreme to Overturn FDA’s Abortion Pill Approval and Restore Safeguards for Women

The Family Foundation Joined Brief With Over 35 Allied Pro-Life Groups in Case

LEXINGTON, KY – Today, the U.S. Supreme Court is set to hear oral arguments in Food and Drug Administration v. Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine, a case challenging the FDA’s reckless and illegal actions removing the safety standards that the FDA originally felt were necessary to bring the abortion drugs to market in 2000.

The Family Foundation, along with more than 35 allied pro-life organizations, filed a “friend of the court” amicus brief in the case urging the U.S. Supreme Court to stop the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)’s unlawful approval of chemical abortion drugs and its disregard for women’s health.

Statement from David Walls, Executive Director of The Family Foundation:

We urge the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn the FDA’s unlawful approval of dangerous abortion drugs and restore much-needed safety standards to protect mothers from harm.  By illegally approving the chemical abortion pill and imposing a dangerous mail-order abortion regime, the FDA and the Biden Administration have recklessly put the lives of unborn babies and the health of their mothers at risk. This must stop. The Court should take another stand for the rule of law to protect the health of mothers and their babies,” Walls concluded.

Since 2000, millions of preborn children have lost their lives to the chemical abortion pill.  In addition, the chemical abortion drugs that are being pushed through mail, without seeing a doctor, have resulted in serious additional safety and health issues for women.
