Throughout the past several years, Corporate Abortion and its well-funded political allies deliberately took advantage of the COVID-19 pandemic and used it to advance chemical abortion in our nation. Finally, in December 2021, their sly efforts paid off and the FDA gutted health and safety standards for chemical abortion drugs. Now, abortion vendors can ship the life-ending pills in the mail without having to take the time or spend the money to be sure that women wouldn’t be harmed, made infertile, or die after taking them.
Chemical abortion pills end preborn lives and have caused the deaths of at least 26 women, in addition to causing thousands of confirmed hospitalizations. Dropping the health and safety standards enables the predatory abortion industry to sell these deadly pills online without examining the mother to prevent permanent injury or even death. This will also allow abusers and sex traffickers to obtain and use chemical abortion pills on women without their knowledge or consent.
Our only hope to reverse this is the Teleabortion Prevention Act of 2021, introduced by Rep. Bob Good (R-VA) to "hold accountable medical professionals providing remote healthcare." If passed, this bill would require healthcare providers "conduct a physical examination, be present during the chemical abortion, and schedule a follow-up visit for the patient."

The radical move to expand access to chemical abortion pills is the biggest battleground we face right now in the pro-life movement. Chemical abortion now makes up 54% of all abortions prior to 9 weeks' gestation, and now that the FDA has removed safety protocols (called REMs– Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy), women are at increased risk of injury, infection, lost fertility, and even death.
During the COVID-19 crisis, Planned Parenthood and their bought-and-paid-for allies in statehouses across America worked non-stop to bust open the doors to sell dangerous chemical abortion drugs through the mail or at pharmacies without pregnancy confirmation tests or ultrasounds – and they are facing little opposition.
They are targeting vulnerable young women to trick them into believing undergoing a chemical abortion is as easy as taking an aspirin for a headache. Nothing could be further from the truth.
