The Food and Drug Administration has permanently changed its restrictions on abortion drugs. Following an official rule change in early January, women no longer need to see a doctor in person to be prescribed chemical abortion pills. The move, according to OB-GYN Dr. Ingrid Skop, is opening women up to the “Wild West” of abortion.
“With all the removal of the restrictions by the FDA, it is the Wild West,” Skop, a senior fellow and director of medical affairs at the Charlotte Lozier Institute, says. “We know there have already been documented cases of women much further along than 10 weeks who’ve been provided abortion pills by the boyfriend or the father of the baby who did not want her to be pregnant.”
Abortion pills are only authorized to be used up to 10 weeks of pregnancy, but Skop says there “have been cases of 31-, 33-week infants being delivered because [the abortion pills will in] many cases not kill the baby, but it’ll induce labor because of the misoprostol.”
Skop joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to explain why the FDA has approved the mail-order abortions for women and is now allowing pharmacies to fill prescriptions for abortion pills.
