Pro-Life Action League Statement on SCOTUS Abortion Pill Decision

This morning the U.S. Supreme Court issued a unanimous ruling in the case of Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine v. Food and Drug Administration, finding that the Alliance did not have standing to sue the FDA over how the agency approved the abortion drug mifepristone. In response, Pro-Life Action League executive director Eric Scheidler issued the following statement:

If a group of concerned physicians can’t sue the FDA over the utterly politicized manner in which they approved and then expanded the availability of abortion pills, then who can? That’s the unanswered question in today’s ruling. How did a drug that sends one in 25 women who use it to the ER ever get approved? How did the FDA agree to allow it to be given to women without a physical examination? If — as it appears — no one can sue the FDA, then Congress must act to rein in the agency, which clearly cares more about shielding abortion providers than keeping American women safe.
