Supreme Court reinstates FDA rules protecting women seeking chemical abortions


Wednesday, January 13, 2021

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Legal Counsel Elissa Graves regarding the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision Tuesday to grant the government’s request to reinstate Food and Drug Administration rules protecting the health and safety of women seeking chemical abortion pills after a group of doctors sued to reverse agency policy and send abortion pills by mail without seeing patients in person:

“Every woman should have all the information she needs to make the healthiest choice for everyone involved in a pregnancy. The FDA’s commonsense and long-standing rule requiring the in-person dispensing of abortion pills benefits both mother and child, and it deserves to stand. Loosening vital protections for women in the face of a global health crisis doesn’t benefit anyone, except the abortion industry. The Supreme Court’s decision is a win for the health and safety of women across this country.”
