When you hear someone talk about abortion pills, what comes to mind?
Maybe you imagine a woman simply taking a pill similar to headache medicine in a clinical setting, with physicians monitoring and without complications.
Or maybe you know the truth that women are given two pills to take at home – something that, thanks in part to the Biden Administration, can happen without even an in-person medical examination beforehand. One pill will starve the child, and the second will force the child to be expelled from the mother. The woman will likely suffer intense physical symptoms and deliver her aborted child alone at home – often a traumatic experience.
The risk associated with these abortion pills is an astounding four times greater than the risk of surgical abortions. And, increasingly, it’s one of the most common forms of abortion.
But the title of this email said good news – keep reading!
Our friends at Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) filed a lawsuit on behalf of pro-life doctors. These doctors sued the FDA over the illegal way it approved the abortion pills. According to ADF, “The FDA never studied the safety of the drugs under the labeled conditions of use, ignored the potential impacts of the hormone-blocking regimen on the developing bodies of adolescent girls, disregarded the substantial evidence that chemical abortion drugs cause more complications than surgical abortions, and eliminated necessary safeguards for pregnant girls and women who undergo this dangerous drug regimen.”
So now for the good news: Last week, a federal court in Texas sided with the pro-life doctors, halting the approval of the abortion drugs! This is a major win for protecting both babies in the womb and their mothers. The Biden Administration has appealed this life-saving ruling, and radical abortion associations and Democrats in Congress have gone all in to limit protections for women and support the administration’s efforts to make these dangerous pills widely available. Some have even gone so far as to suggest that the Biden Administration should outright ignore this legitimate, legally binding ruling!
Even as we wait to see what happens next in the Fifth Circuit, here are two things you can do right now to help protect babies:
- Speak out: The Biden Administration recently put forward guidance allowing pharmacies to dispense abortion pills. That means that your local CVS or Walmart could turn into an abortion clinic. If you haven’t already, please send a message to pharmacies, asking them not to dispense these pills. It only takes a minute at our Action Center!
- Pray: Join us in thanking God for this victory and praying for continued victory as the Biden Administration appeals the decision. This ruling could make its way all the way to the Supreme Court. And, pray with us for the end of abortion, and that life would be truly cherished throughout our nation.
Together for life,
