"Baby Pesticides"

Back in 2000, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the use of two drugs/chemicals to abort a developing baby in the womb. In 2016, the FDA, under pressure from pro-abortion groups, ended the "in-person" requirement for prescribing the drugs. They also authorized the use of the drugs for up to 10 weeks after a woman's last period. Recently, the FDA removed even more safeguards on access to the chemicals.

Now, Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a Christian legal organization, has filed a lawsuit in federal court on behalf of four physicians and the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists, the Christian Medical and Dental Association, the American College of Pediatricians and the Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine.

The lawsuit alleges that the FDA has failed in its duty to ensure women are not harmed by these powerful chemicals. The drugs have been linked to hemorrhaging and septic shock, according to researchers. A report from the Charlotte Lozier Institute, a pro-life group, found that over 3,800 "adverse" events were reported to the FDA between 2000 and 2019, including more than 20 deaths.

These powerful chemicals are usually taken by women at home without medical supervision. Planned Parenthood aggressively promotes the "baby pesticides" at its clinics and, in some cases, mails the pills to women's homes.

We commend the plaintiffs for trying to hold the FDA accountable for its failure to protect lives and adequately warn women of the dangers of taking chemicals to destroy a developing baby.
