The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has previously required the first dose of a chemical abortion that destroys humans from within the womb has to be administered by an actual physician in person. However, thanks to a legal petition submitted by a coalition of pro-infanticide organizations, including the ACLU and the American College of Obstetricians & Gynecologists, a federal judge has ruled that doctors can now prescribe the poison over the Internet and send it in the mail.
Mifepristone, the first half of the murder cocktail known as RU-486, can now be given out like vitamins, according to U.S. District Judge Theodore Chuang. The judge ruled that coronavirus – which kills fewer people than abortion – is a health crisis that requires women to stay home because killing their baby is “non-essential travel.”
Chuang argued in his ruling that the change to the regulations was necessary because, “particularly in light of the limited timeframe during which a medication abortion or any abortion must occur, such infringement on the right to an abortion would constitute irreparable harm,” so says the Washington Post.
The judge added, “By causing certain patients to decide between forgoing or substantially delaying abortion care, or risking exposure to COVID-19 for themselves, their children, and family members, the In-Person Requirements present a serious burden to many abortion patients.”
Lifesite News spoke to the president of Created Equal, who said, “Abortion advocates, including this federal judge, are using COVID-19 as a Trojan horse to eliminate FDA restrictions on pill abortion.”
He continued, “Abortionists have come out into the open with their plans for early abortion — the sale and distribution of chemical abortion drugs resulting in increasing numbers of aborted children flushed into America’s wastewater systems.”
ACLU attorney Julia Kaye called it a “tremendous victory for abortion patients and for science and common sense.”
A victory for the unborn, the decision was not. Mothers can now kill their children with toxics without a doctor’s visit. Additionally, RU-486 has been shown to have killed hundreds of women through septic shock and other complications. Whether or not this decision proves to be a victory for mothers with homicidal tendencies is dubious, given the health complications of the drug and now its easier availability without a doctor’s visit.
