The American Medical Association officially took a stance on abortion last week when it filed a lawsuit against two pro-life laws that protect unborn babies from abortion.
WBFO News reports the lawsuit challenges two North Dakota laws involving informed consent for women seeking abortions.
One law requires abortionists to tell women that an abortion destroys “the life of a whole, separate, unique, living human being.” The other informs women of the abortion pill reversal procedure, which potentially can save their baby’s life.
The American Medical Association, which represents thousands of doctors across the U.S., argued that the laws “unconstitutionally [force] physicians to act as the mouthpiece of the state.”
Yahoo News reports the Center for Reproductive Rights and the Red River Women’s Clinic, the only abortion facility in North Dakota, also are involved in the lawsuit.
“The women we serve come to us assuming we will provide them with medically-accurate information and care,” said Tammi Kromenaker, director of Red River Women’s Clinic, in a statement. “North Dakota’s laws are forcing us to say things that violate our medical ethics and will soon force us to say things that are simply false and not backed up by science.”
Nothing could be further from the truth. The state is not pushing an agenda by requiring informed consent. It merely is requiring that abortion facilities fully inform women of the facts – something the lawsuit indicates that they do not want to do.

The American Medical Association of all groups should know the well-accepted fact that a unique, separate human being forms at conception. Biology and medical textbooks indicate that this is true, but abortion facilities do not want women to know it because it could mean a loss of business.
The abortion pill reversal procedure is a recent development, but research indicates that it can successfully save babies’ lives after the woman takes the first abortion pill.
Doctors who developed the reversal treatment say more than 400 unborn babies have been saved from abortion as a result. In 2018, they published a study demonstrating its effectiveness in saving babies’ lives. Even a prestigious Yale School of Medicine doctor told the New York Times that the treatment “makes biological sense,” and he would recommend it to his own daughter.
However, the AMA claims the procedure is “a patently false and unproven claim unsupported by scientific evidence.”
The lawsuit is an unusual move for the medical group. According to the local news, the AMA “has tended to stay on the sidelines of many controversial political issues, and until recently has done so concerning abortion and contraception. Instead, it has focused on legislation that affects the practice and finances of large swaths of its membership.”
But new AMA President Patrice Harris is pushing abortion activism, the report states. She argued that the North Dakota laws put “physicians in a place where we are required by law to commit an ethical violation.”
