More people are finding out the dangers of abortion drugs as the Supreme Court hears oral arguments to ban them

Mar 25, 2024

More people have learned in the last few years that Big Pharma is not always looking after your health.

And while the Democratic Party has always been pro-abortion, they used to support it as a last resort.

But now the Biden administration is going to the Supreme Court to push abortion drugs that are more dangerous than many people know.

Nearly two-thirds of abortions in 2023 were self-administered

In the final days of the Clinton administration, the FDA expedited the approval of mifepristone to push the product out before George W. Bush took office.

The result has been a sharp increase in self-administered abortions—rising by 450% since 2005.

In 2023, these on-demand abortion drugs accounted for nearly two-thirds of all abortions.

Now the Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine (AHM) is challenging the decision by Clinton’s FDA claiming that it violated the Administrative Procedure Act.

Last year, the Fifth U.S. Circuit upheld a ruling by lower courts that agreed with the AHM’s assertion that the fast-tracked approval process was in violation of the law.

Now, the Biden administration has brought the case to the Supreme Court, and soon, they will hear the case that could have enormous repercussions.

Women recall harrowing experiences with on-demand abortion drugs

AHM presented nearly three dozen stories from women who experienced adverse events due to the
use of self-administered abortion drugs to the Supreme Court.

The heart-wrenching stories gave explicit examples of post-abortive women who experienced detrimental physical and psychological side effects after taking the drugs.

One woman named “Patricia” said that the abortionists at Planned Parenthood told her that it was safe and that she would likely not face any complications with the drug.

“Within one hour, I knew that everything the doctor told me was a lie,” she said according to the filing.

Patricia said that she felt as if she was “dying” and that she experienced “the worst physical pain” that she had ever endured.

Afterwards, she couldn’t go to the restroom without remembering “the shame and guilt” that she felt after she “was forced to flush” her aborted baby.

“It had a head, body, and tiny arms and legs,” she recalled.

This story is merely one example of thousands of women who deal with this trauma every day.

These numbers are “nothing short of a tragedy”

The filing also included statistics that come directly from the FDA detailing over 4,207 adverse events from mifepristone from 2000 to 2021.

These adverse events resulted in over 1,000 hospitalizations and 26 deaths.

These staggering numbers have been reduced by lowered reporting requirements that were put into place in the last days of the Obama administration.

Tessa Longbons Cox of the Charlotte Lozier Institute says that the statistics are “nothing short of a tragedy” and called for more attention to be brought to the trend.

“We know from major international studies that abortion drugs pose four times the risks of surgical abortion, but the abortion lobby consistently downplays these risks that undermine their narrative,” she said.

Oral arguments in Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine v. the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, will be heard on March 26th.

If SCOTUS upholds the appellate court decision, then this could mean the end of self-administered abortions and a major blow to the industry.
