FRC Action and Pro-Life Coalition Urge the FDA to Reject New Abortion-Causing Drug
Date:7/28/2010

WASHINGTON, July 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today FRC Action joined 19 pro-life groups in a letter sent to Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Commissioner Margaret Hamburg requesting that Ella, a drug under consideration for FDA approval that can cause abortions but is misleadingly labeled as an "emergency contraceptive," not be approved.

Tom McClusky, FRC Action's Senior Vice President, made the following comments:

"The Obama Administration has repeatedly promised a commitment to science and transparency, but approval of Ella as an 'emergency contraceptive' would deny women the right to informed consent on something as important as a baby's life and their health. Ella can cause an abortion after implantation, just like RU-486.

"Additionally, given the recently enacted Obama health care plan, approval of this drug could open yet another backdoor to taxpayer funding of abortions," McClusky concluded.
