Ohio's Regulation of RU-486 Clear and Constitutional, Should Be Upheld Argues AUL in Brief Filed Before Ohio Supreme Court
Date:10/16/2008

CHICAGO, Oct. 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Americans United for Life (AUL) today filed an amicus brief on behalf of ten U.S. Representatives supporting Ohio's regulation of the deadly abortion drug, RU-486.

AUL President Dr. Charmaine Yoest stated, "RU-486 has a proven track record of ruining and even ending women's lives. We must put a stop to abortionists' dangerous, off-label use of this drug. Ohio's statute is a step in the right direction, and as we argue in our brief, it should be upheld."

Added Denise Burke, AUL Vice President & Legal Director, "Abortionists readily admit to dispensing RU-486 in a manner contrary to the FDA's approved protocol. This puts women's health and lives at additional risk, and demonstrates yet again that the abortion industry puts profits above women's health."

Abortionists filed suit challenging the law, arguing Ohio's regulation of RU-486 is unconstitutional because the regulation's requirements are unclear. The state of Ohio and AUL counter that the Ohio regulation is definitive in its requirement that abortionists can only use the RU-486 drug regimen in the way in which it was tested by the FDA, which is clearly laid out in the drug manufacturer's instructions that accompany the drug.

"The argument that abortionists don't know how to correctly dispense RU-486 is nonsensical," stated AUL Staff Counsel Mailee Smith. "Physicians routinely follow the protocols approved by the FDA and described in manufacturer's instructions when dispensing other drugs. Ohio's regulation simply requires that abortionists do this with RU-486."
