The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) under President Biden has announced that it is making abortion pills available at brick-and-mortar pharmacies for the first time. At a time when Americans are bearing runaway costs of basic drugs like insulin, the Biden Administration is prioritizing the market expansion of abortion pills for abortion activists and the pharmaceutical industry.

“Today’s announcement is yet another in a long train of actions the Biden Administration has taken that put women at grave risk, in its headlong rush to push abortion drugs on the American public,” said Steven H. Aden, Chief Legal Officer & General Counsel at Americans United for Life. “Despite the FDA’s longtime approval of chemical abortion as a restricted drug, with solemn warnings about its use and restrictions on its distribution because of the role it plays in causing dangerous hemorrhaging, infection and missed ectopic pregnancies, this administration seems to stop at nothing to tear down the rules that had helped protect women from this drug.”

Americans United for Life urges the states to do what our federal government refuses to do: protect Americans from abortion pills, which are an inherently dangerous and deadly drug.
