This week a federal Texas judge could stop over half of the abortions happening in the country in what may be the most consequential abortion ruling since the reversal of Roe v. Wade.
U.S. Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk for the Northern District of Texas is set to issue a decision in the Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine’s (AHM) suit against the Federal Drug Administration that alleges the agency ignored its own research and testing standards when approving the abortion drug mifepristone.
AHM and several other medical organizations and doctors are represented in this suit by the legal group Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF).
ADF senior counsel Erik Baptist told CNA that unborn babies are not the only ones harmed by chemical abortion. Baptist said that at least 1 in 6 women experience severe medical complications because of using chemical abortion drugs.
