MO, KS, ID seek to join lawsuit to restore safeguards to chemical abortion drugs

Monday, Nov 6, 2023

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Erin Hawley, vice president of the ADF Center for Life and Center for Regulatory Practice, regarding a motion to intervene that Missouri, Kansas, and Idaho filed Friday in Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine v. U.S. Food and Drug Administration:

“As someone who knows the state of Missouri and its people very well, it is encouraging to see Missouri, along with Kansas and Idaho, intervene in this important case to protect the health and well-being of women and girls. The FDA’s illegal actions have inflicted harm on these states, in addition to the harms suffered by ADF’s doctor and association clients, and recent actions have compelled them to seek to join our effort in holding the FDA accountable. The FDA failed to do its job, and every court so far has agreed that the FDA acted unlawfully in removing crucial safeguards for women and authorizing dangerous mail-order abortions.”

Alliance Defending Freedom is an alliance-building, non-profit legal organization committed to protecting religious freedom, free speech, parental rights, and the sanctity of life.
