Lawsuit challenging illegal approval of abortion drugs continues

College of the Ozarks has become the latest target of attempts to violate religious freedom and redefine sex

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Erik Baptist regarding the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision Friday in Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine v. U.S. Food and Drug Administration to pause a trial court decision that would have restored critical safeguards to chemical abortion drugs while the lawsuit seeking to reimplement those safeguards proceeds:

“As is common practice, the Supreme Court has decided to maintain the status quo that existed prior to our lawsuit while our challenge to the FDA’s illegal approval of chemical abortion drugs and its removal of critical safeguards for those drugs moves forward. Our case seeking to put women’s health above politics continues on an expedited basis in the lower courts. The FDA must answer for the damage it has caused to the health of countless women and girls and the rule of law by failing to study how dangerous the chemical abortion drug regimen is and unlawfully removing every meaningful safeguard, even allowing for mail-order abortions. We look forward to a final outcome in this case that will hold the FDA accountable.”
