Supreme Court upholds FDA rule barring abortion drugs from being delivered by mail

Pro-lifers had reason to celebrate last week after the Supreme Court stepped in to re-establish a ban on abortions-by-mail.

According to Reuters, the ruling by the high court means women will need to visit a doctor or hospital in order to obtain abortion-inducing drugs, in accordance with regulations put in place by the Food and Drug Administration. Abortion advocates had fought to allow the pills to be delivered by mail amid the COVID-19 pandemic, and a federal judge issued an injunction in July against the FDA rule.

Thanks to the Supreme Court’s decision, the rule will now remain in effect as challenges to it make their way through the court system.

“Should not have intervened”

The Washington Free Beacon reported Wednesday that the ruling came down 6–3, with the majority arguing “that the lower courts should not have intervened to overturn the decision-making process of a federal agency devoted to public health issues.”

“[The] courts owe significant deference to the politically accountable entities with the ‘background, competence, and expertise to assess public health,'” Chief Justice John Roberts said, according to the Free Beacon.

In a dissent, Justice Sonia Sotomayor said the rule imposes an “unjustifiable, irrational, and undue burden on women seeking an abortion during the current pandemic,” according to Reuters.

“This country’s laws have long singled out abortions for more onerous treatment than other medical procedures,” Sotomayor, who was joined in her dissent by Justice Elena Kagan, added.

“Dangerous” drugs

But while the high court’s left-leaning jurists may feel otherwise, pro-life groups are cheering the decision.

Mallory Quigley, who serves as vice president of the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List, told the Washington Free Beacon that allowing abortion drugs by mail jeopardizes “the health and safety of women.”

“The pro-abortion lobby has consistently sought to further jeopardize the health and safety of women by pushing deregulation of dangerous abortion drugs,” she said.

“Planned Parenthood and the abortion lobby even sought to exploit the COVID-19 pandemic to push abortion by mail, promoting DIY abortion at home, upping the risk of serious complications,” Quigley added.

Katie Glenn, an attorney with Americans United for Life, expressed a similar sentiment. “Removing the in-person dispensing requirement increased the risk of serious health complications and the likelihood that the drug would be misused,” Glenn charged, according to Free Beacon.

  2. The Supreme Court is too little too late. They should have given President Trump his “day in court” over the fraudulent presidential election. I would say 271 pages of fraud is enough to put up a good court battle! Shame on the Supreme Court Justices…..have they been bought off by China like the Bidens?

    1. I agree totally with your comments. If there was another issue the court SHOULD address is the censorship that is being foisted on Americans…I peak to all levels….TV, cable, print media and all the social media platforms that have blocked or suspended users that voice differing opinions to their particular point of view

    2. Justice John Roberts SHOULD GO ! USELESS ! He always turned down whenever Trump wanted any intervention by the Supreme Court ! One well known Attorney wrote that he always used EXPLETIVES whenever the name of Trump came up ! We should have a separate Peoples Court that is responsive to the needs of ordinary People ! The Supreme Court Judges think the they are ELITES, and cannot be bothered to hear case from ordinary people !

  3. We are living in one of the worst societies our nation has ever experienced and I feel it will be worse before it gets better! When you are concerned about the death penalty for convicted, terrible people and not the horror babies go through just trying to be born, something is terribly wrong with us!!
    When you have the president claiming he is a devout Catholic and pushing abortion; when you have the speaker of the house pushing abortion and yet claiming to be a devout Catholic and both demanding every evil imaginable be accepted for EQUALITY, we are in an unstable society!
    Unfortunately, with POLITICAL CORRECTNESS WE HAVE DEVOLVED INTO AN EXTREMELY IGNORANT COUNTRY!! God help us!! This is possibly what those in power really wanted, so we’d be easy pickings for total takeover!!

  4. Don’t care. The Supreme Court betray America. They didn’t do their jobs. They let communism and China joe destroy the constitution and the American people way of life. So all the judges on the Supreme Court are useless. They can have China joe. All traitors. Roberts is the biggest traitor of all. Gets his order from George Bush the world order idiot.

  5. What I find interesting how many people does this affect over the age of 55

    and how many people did their inaction affect of the age of 55

    Next I expect Pence to come out and say what a win this was.

  6. Good! Wish the Supreme Court was not so SUPREMELY BAD on supporting the Constitution vs rejecting rule of law and juris prudence to consider evidence on VOTER FRAUD.
    Too many Dem’s and Repubs throw us bones once in a while to GIVE THE ILLUSION of doing their job.
    I am extremely ashamed of traitors like Justice Roberts and the leftist comerades in ALLOWING AND SPONSORING VOTER FRAUD. I am also extremely ashamed of the INJUSTICE DEPARTMENT traitorous head leaders. Never cared too much for the president started CIA which has turned so traitorous to the USA and world but know MOST FBI agents are good guys suppressed by leaders planted by the Bush’s, Clinton, and Obama to support the New World Order agenda.
    If you cleaned out the Dem party of all traitors that defy or twist and abuse the Constitution and defy what most americans want you might have a dozen or two. If you did the same with the Republican party you may have a hundred to two hundred left – all rest traitorous RINO’s. The Supreme Court – 3 left. The DOJ perhaps 3/4 left especially the FBI. The CIA ??? Probably maybe one or two that don’t cow tow to leadership.

  7. What is our path forward to ‘Resist’ LIKE they did us for 4 years? There must be pressures we can apply! We can’t just let this be ok. There are some good politicians that we must support. We must’ve tell the truth around us. Keep the faith – story isn’t over yet!
