A coalition of 75 members of Congress is accusing the Biden administration of “abandoning” pregnant women to complications that include “death.”
The letter from the representatives to Joe Biden’s Food and Drug Administration concerns Biden’s agenda to promote abortion-causing drugs all across the United States, including in states that disallow abortion.
Biden is using the FDA to supposedly authorize the distribution of those death-dealing drugs through the mail into those states.
A report at the Washington Stand documents the letter that comes amid a “flurry of legislation, executive orders, and lawsuits.”
Biden, the report said, “seeks to protect the abortion industry,” while pro-life advocates are trying to protect unborn children and their mothers.
“As the Biden administration expanded the distribution of abortion-inducing drugs, 75 pro-life lawmakers have demanded the FDA take pills off the market altogether. As Biden’s executive actions tout expanding the distribution of abortion-inducing drugs as ‘essential to our [n]ation’s health,’ litigators have threatened to take abortionists to state court and issued fresh warnings to corporations thinking of trafficking in life-ending drugs,” the report explains.
The letter itself charges, “We call on the FDA to remove mifepristone from the market, or, at minimum, promptly restore and further strengthen the initial basic health and safety requirements for abortion drugs, and cease permitting the mailing and shipping of abortion drugs in violation of [f]ederal criminal law.”
Congress is charging that Biden “abandons pregnant mothers to suffer alone, without proper medical evaluation or oversight, potentially life-threatening complications, which can include severe bleeding, infection, potential surgical intervention, and even death.”
Even worse, Biden’s scheming “makes it easier for these drugs to fall into the hands of human traffickers or abusers, who may administer the drugs to pregnant mothers without their knowledge or consent.”
The letter was submitted by 23 senators and 52 members of the U.S. House, led by Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith, R-Miss., and Rep. Bob Latta, R-Ohio, the report said.
Just a short time ago, a group of 41 members of Congress charged that Attorney General Merrick Garland was refusing to enforce the federal Comstock Act, which forbids mailing abortion-inducing drugs.
Kamala Harris, vice president, recently admitted that, without a Democrat majority in the House, the Biden administration is working to “recommend actions” that allow the distribution nationwide of the death-causing pills.
Biden himself has written, “Defending and protecting [abortion] is essential to our [n]ation’s health, safety, and progress.”
Several legislative proposals already have been submitted that also would address Biden’s abortion agenda. One is called the Protect the UNBORN (Undo the Negligent Biden Orders Right Now) Act.
