Ohio Supreme Court Strikes a Blow to Planned Parenthood in Upholding Regulation of 'Abortion Pill'
Date:7/2/2009

CHICAGO, July 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Pro-life forces won an important battle yesterday when the Ohio Supreme Court ruled to uphold a state law regulating that abortion centers must properly follow FDA guidelines in administering RU-486 (also known as the "abortion pill") in order to protect the health of women using the drug.

The ruling came in Rogers v. Planned Parenthood, a challenge by Planned Parenthood to a 2004 law requiring that those administering RU-486 comply with the FDA-approved treatment protocol for the "abortion pill" and, consistent with the drug's safety and efficacy data, restrict its use to pregnancies at or under 49 days gestation. In short, the law simply requires abortionists to abide by the protocol approved by the FDA when it first made RU-486 available in the United States in September 2000.

Dr. Charmaine Yoest, AUL President & CEO said, "We applaud the Ohio Supreme Court for cutting through Planned Parenthood's self-serving rhetoric that it did not need to follow the protocol tested and approved by the FDA when administering RU-486. For far too long, Planned Parenthood and its enablers have thought themselves above the law. Today the Ohio Supreme Court put a decisive end to that."

Americans United for Life (AUL) filed an amicus brief in the case on behalf of several U.S. Representatives supporting the State and the law. AUL's amicus brief, filed on behalf of House Minority Leader John Boehner (Ohio) and nine U.S. Representatives -- Roscoe Bartlett (Md.), Dan Burton (Ind.), Steve Chabot (Ohio), Trent Franks (Ariz.), Jim Jordan (Ohio), Robert E. Latta (Ohio), Joseph R. Pitts (Pa.), Jean Schmidt (Ohio), and Chris Smith (N.J.) -- is available at
