Daines Urges FDA Commissioner to Classify Abortion Pill as Hazard to Public Health

U.S. SENATE – U.S. Senator Steve Daines sent a letter urging U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Commissioner Stephen Hahn to exercise the FDA’s authority to classify the abortion pill Mifeprex (or mifepristone) as an “imminent hazard to the public health” that poses a “significant threat of danger,” a classification that would result in the removal of this pill from the U.S. Market.

“It is by now nakedly obvious that the abortion industry and its allies in the media, billionaire philanthropic circles, and special interest groups, have wanted an unregulated and demedicalized abortion pill since the moment the FDA first approved it in 2000,” Daines wrote. “To protect vulnerable women and children, we strongly urge the FDA to remove this deadly drug from the U.S. market and exercise its authority under 21 CFR § 2.5, declaring it an ‘imminent hazard to public health.”
