Abortion Providers Must Immediately Cease Online Sales of Dangerous Abortion Pills – FDA

The Food and Drug Administration issued warning letters last week to two abortion groups that are selling dangerous abortion drugs to American women over the internet.

The groups are putting women at “significant health risks,” according to the agency. They allow women to buy the drugs online without ever seeing a doctor, though abusive partners or parents could easily buy the drugs as well.

The FDA told the abortion providers AidAccess and Rablon to “immediately cease” providing the drugs in violation of health and safety regulations, according to the letter dated March 8 on the agency website.

“Failure to correct these violations may result in FDA regulatory action, including seizure or injunction, without further notice,” the letter states.

It noted that approved abortion drugs in the U.S. are dangerous even when provided legally, writing, “… the drug carries a risk of serious or even life-threatening adverse effects, including serious and sometimes fatal infections and prolonged heavy bleeding …”

LifeNews reported about the pro-abortion website Aid Access in October. The same abortion activists who run Women on Web, a Netherlands-based abortion group that ships abortion drugs to women across the world – often illegally, set up the site specifically for American women. The leader is Rebecca Gomperts.

Ignoring serious concerns about women’s safety, left-wing news sites took up the cause of the abortion groups. Vox and Jezebel both suggested the abortion websites are helping women as access to abortion facilities declines across the U.S.

Risks of mifepristone and misoprostol, the most common abortion drugs taken together to abort and then expel an unborn baby from the womb, include excessive bleeding, severe abdominal pain, infection, hemorrhage and death. (Read More)
