On the 9th Day of Repeal, The GOP Took From Me…

On the 9th day of repeal, the GOP took from me: FDA approval.

Anti-abortion advocates, represented by a far-right legal organization, have filed a lawsuit before a federal judge in Texas with the sweeping aim of a nationwide ban on mifepristone, which is used for medication abortions. The plaintiffs argue that the FDA’s authorization of the drug over two decades ago was flawed and that the drug which has been used by over 2.5 million women is, in fact, dangerous.

Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine v. U.S. Food and Drug Administration has the potential to undermine the country’s process for regulating pharmaceuticals. If the plaintiffs in this case are successful, it would open the door to any third party with a political agenda to challenge a medication that they object to. If these plaintiffs can successfully challenge the more than two decades-old approval of this drug, then every group that opposes a drug or vaccine will be able to use the same playbook to bring lawsuits seeking to ban those medications.
