The US Supreme Court approved a request by the Trump administration on Tuesday evening to restore a rule requiring women to visit in person with a medical professional before receiving abortion-inducing drugs.
In a 6-3 vote, the court Stop A lower court decision to allow abortion drugs to be mailed to mifepristone and misoprostol for women who wish to terminate their pregnancies at home as long as the pandemic continues.
Judge Theodore D. Chuang of the United States District Court for the County of Maryland, appointed by Obama, Certainly An initial court order in July after pro-abortion groups filed a lawsuit.
The Trump administration has appealed the ruling, arguing that it would be safe for a woman to see a doctor before taking medications due to safety concerns.
Chief Justice John Roberts wrote in order:
The question before us is not whether the requirements for dispensing mifepristone place an undue burden on a woman’s right to abortion as a public matter. The question is instead whether the district court properly ordered the FDA [FDA] To raise those specific requirements due to the court’s assessment of the impact of COVID-19 [Chinese coronavirus] pandemic. Here as in the relevant contexts related to government responses to the pandemic, my view is that the courts owe great respect to politically responsible entities with “the background, competence, and expertise to assess public health.” South Bay United Pentecostal Church v. Newsom, 590 US ___, ___ (2020) (ROBERTS, CJ, Consent to Deny Imperative Relief Request) (voucher of reference, at 2). In light of these considerations, I do not see sufficient basis here for a district court to compel the FDA to change the medical abortion regimen.
Judge Sonia Sotomayor wrote an opposition, joined by Judge Elena Cagan, in which she said:
Because FDA policy imposes an unnecessary, unjustified, irrational, and unjustified burden on women seeking abortions during the current pandemic, and because the government has not shown irreparable harm from the injunction, I am opposed.
In late April, Planned Parenthood’s CEO, Alexis McGill Johnson Referred to Telemedicine abortion as the “silver lining” of the coronavirus epidemic.
Johnson Tell The fact that many countries have tried to include elective abortion among other measures that should be banned temporarily to preserve scarce medical equipment for healthcare workers treating coronavirus patients is unreasonable.
The chief executive of the nation’s largest abortion provider said the “silver lining” of the pandemic was the launch of a new remote abortion service from regulated parenthood, where women seeking an abortion physically meet an abortion provider and get a prescription for abortion – stimulating medications they take at home.
She said, “It is, in fact, a silver lining in this epidemic, that Planned Parenthood and many other health service providers have already managed to rely on telehealth and service infrastructure.”
Planned Parenthood was Promotion The increase in home abortions since remote abortion services began across the country, although many life advocates have concerns about the practice.
Specifically, mifepristone, one of the drugs used in medical abortion, is not approved under the Food and Drug Administration’s Risk Assessment and Mitigation Strategy (REMS), but women are obtaining it illegally from abroad.
“This is a drug that definitely has risks associated with it,” Dr. Christina Francis, Indiana-based obstetrician-gynecologist and chair of the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists (AAPLOG), Tell EWTN Pro-Life Weekly.
Francis said that some of the immediate complications of mifepristone could be:
… haemorrhage, the immediate possibility of infection, and the possibility of failure, as pregnancy does not pass completely from the drug and then sometimes leads to the need for emergency surgery for that woman either because of continuous bleeding or the risk of infection.
Francis added that due to the uncertainty associated with the epidemic, many women are “affected by fear at the moment, and this is something that continues because of the abortion industry.”
One Family Planning Officer in New York State splurge In April, demand for the organization’s new remote abortion service increased so much that a mother began her drug abortion “at home with her children running after her”.
Dr. Mira Shah, Chief Medical Officer of Planned Parenthood Hudson Baconik, Tell The Associated Press (AP):
We offered medical abortion to EMT while she was sitting in the ambulance. We provided abortion care to a mother who was at home with her children running after her.
Former abortion specialist Dr. Anthony Levatino explained In his videos about various abortion procedures, mifepristone blocks the action of progesterone, which the mother’s body produces to nourish the pregnancy. When progesterone is blocked, the lining of the mother’s uterus deteriorates, and the blood and food for the developing baby, who then dies inside the mother’s womb, is cut off.
Misoprostol (also known as Cytotec) causes cramps and bleeding to expel the baby from the mother’s womb.
In the Washington Update column in May, Chairman of the Family Research Council Tony Perkins Wrote Planned Parenthood’s Johnson refers to more remote abortions as the “silver lining” of the coronavirus, meaning “more deaths – more innocent and unborn babies deaths made possible thanks to their money-hungry network.”
Perkins said that as Planned Parenthood’s remote abortion organization expands to include all 50 states, more women in the home will undergo “chemically induced procedures that carry significant risks.”
They tell women it will be a simple, natural, safe and private operation. They will recover in a day, maybe two. What they don’t tell them is that they might even give birth to a very full-fledged little baby. Or they will experience labor pains, heavy bleeding, vomiting, or loss of consciousness. They don’t talk about depression, anger, anxiety, panic attacks and the drug abuse that follows. Or weeks to months of recovery time, and is usually administered on its own.
“This is the silver lining of Planned Parenthood,” concluded Perkins. “Children who have no chance in life, and women who are being hurt and hurt.”
In September, more than 90 members of Congress Wrote To FDA Commissioner Stephen Hahn, urge him to classify mifepristone as a “hazard” or “threat of danger” in order to remove it from the US market.
The pro-life millennial student group in America described the Supreme Court’s decision as a “life-saving decision” and a “victory of reason.”
Kristan Hawkins, head of the group, said:
The abortion lobby’s misuse of the COVID crisis to force the distribution of medication abortion pills online by running to court shows just how little they care about what happens to women who take killer drugs. The women died while taking these deadly drugs, and the Supreme Court made the right decision to restore health and safety standards.
NIFLA President Thomas Glissner praised the Supreme Court for recognizing health and safety concerns associated with drugs that induce abortion:
In her first miscarriage case since Judge Amy Connie Barrett joined the court, Scotus ruled that women should be protected from dangerous abortion drugs. The ruling represents a major pro-life victory against the abortion industry that consistently puts profit margins ahead of the well-being of mothers and unborn babies. We hope these federal regulations protecting women remain in place, and that these will be the first of many such provisions.
as such Christian Post Mentioned, Ohio Gov. Mike Dwyane (Right) Occurred Bill into law on Saturday would ban remote abortions in that state.
Women are now required by law to take abortion-inducing drugs in the presence of a doctor.
Ohio Right to Life President Mike Junaidakis celebrate The new law, describing it as a “victory for the life and safety of women.”
“Although every chemical abortion is a tragedy that does not end a child’s life, this law helps prevent further loss of life by protecting women from the abortion industry that puts profits before safety,” he said.
