How is chemical abortion regulated?

The FDA and other regulatory entities have proven that they are not interested in regulating chemical abortion drugs. Recently, the abortion lobby succeeded in pressuring the FDA to remove safety protocols (called REMs– Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy) to make it easier to sell the deadly pills by cutting out health and safety standards. This puts women at risk of injury, infection, lost fertility, and even death. 

Regulation of the drugs is abysmal across the board. Abortion facilities nationwide advertise the pills up to varying gestational ages, including those that exceed the FDA’s safety recommendation of 70 days (10 weeks) LMP. If you search “medical abortion” online, you’ll find results containing many different assertions as to the cutoff for “safe” chemical abortion, ranging anywhere from 5 weeks to 15+ weeks.
