The abortion drug is responsible for the deaths of dozens of women worldwide, including several in the United States alone, and it has injured at least 1,100 women in the United States alone as of 2006 figures from the Food and Drug Administration. Yet, the abortion business has filed suit to void an Arizona law to require FDA protocols be followed when dispensing the dangerous abortion drug RU 486 (mifepristone).
The dangerous RU 486 abortion drug has claimed the lives of nearly two million unborn children in the United States since its approval at the end of the Clinton administration.
In addition to the number of unborn children whose lives have been lost to the abortion drug, women have suffered as well, as a Planned Parenthood study admits at least one woman is seriously injured from the abortion pill daily.
Now, a battle over Planned Parenthood’s lawsuit is heading to the Supreme Court:
Attorney General Tom Horne is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to void a federal appellate court ruling blocking the state from limiting the use of a controversial abortion drug.
Horne on Monday got permission from the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to ignore its month-old order sending the case back to a federal judge in Tucson for a trial on whether the state can limit how doctors can use RU-486. The judges agreed with his arguments that the high court, facing contradictory rulings from other appellate courts, is likely to want to weigh in on the issue.
In the meantime, though, the appellate court’s injunction against enforcement of the 2012 Arizona law remains in effect. And that makes medication abortions available to women through the ninth week of pregnancy — at least for the time being.
