"This decision is profoundly disheartening as it signifies a triumph for those who wish to keep America anchored in the outdated scientific understanding of 1973. The widespread use of RU-486 abortion pills, designed to terminate the lives of unborn Americans by stopping their beating hearts, highlights the alarming level of deregulation currently taking place.

Tragically, since Holly Patterson became the first American woman to die from mifepristone in 2003, the FDA and the abortion industry have only further deregulated these pills, dismissing any negative effects or concerns. Their continued efforts to make these pills readily available at pharmacies and even through mail delivery demonstrate a callous disregard for basic human biology and the inherent value of unborn Americans.

Our society cannot continue to exist in a state of schizophrenia, where we both acknowledge the unborn's humanity and deny it. On one hand, we perform surgeries on unborn children and caution expectant mothers against engaging in risky activities like riding roller coasters. On the other hand, we facilitate the distribution of abortion pills designed to halt their developing hearts and deny them access to essential healthcare if they miraculously survive an abortion attempt.

This decision represents a regressive step, further entrenching the contradictory treatment of unborn Americans, rather than advancing towards a more compassionate and scientifically informed understanding of their inherent value. It is crucial that we recognize the implications of this ruling and work towards a future that upholds the dignity and worth of all human life, born and unborn," Shawn Carney said.
