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."

With more than half of America’s abortions now committed with chemical abortion pills, sending human remains, tissue, and potent chemicals into the wastewater system, we have to ask a critical question: what’s happening to the environment? It’s time to call on the FDA to investigate and hold the line on chemical abortion pill regulation to protect people and the planet.
Students for Life of America has reached out to the FDA asking the agency to require a new environmental assessment. After all, during the approval process for RU-486, an environmental impact study for the drugs focused on the impact of packaging for the drugs, rather than on the impact of human remains in our wastewater system and ground water.
When it comes to pathological waste, the one who is in charge of the process that created the waste is responsible for the handling of it. For example, a person whose limb is amputated isn’t given the job of disposing of it. That task stays with the medical professionals whose actions created the biohazard. Why is that not the case with the abortion industry? It's time for a change.
