The Case: Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine v. FDA

LifeNews reported a recent court filing for the case of Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine AHM Versus the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). AHM filed a lawsuit against the FDA for illegally pushing through approval for the abortion pill, using procedures that were meant for life-saving drugs.

Roland and Vince point out in this CareCast, part of the logic here, sadly, is that pregnancy is viewed as a disease. The FDA had to classify pregnancy as a life-threatening disease. To clarify, a requirement for fast-tracking an aids drug, for example, is that there must be no known alternatives available. The FDA, in speeding up the process to publically deliver the abortion drug, essentially bastardized the process to accommodate abortions.

The best-known way to fast-track the abortion drug is to say, “Well, the woman’s pregnancy is actually a disease, and the cure is terminating the life of the child…”

Roland explains from a medical perspective, when a doctor examines a patient, if the doctor finds something that looks cancerous, the doctor will refer the person to oncology, for example.

If cancer was found, the patient would no doubt say, “Get this out of me as fast as possible.” That would make sense if the issue being dealt with was cancer. It’s life-threatening and measures must take place to remove the cancer from you.

The “issue” we’re dealing with here, however, is not cancer…it’s how we’re going to view the unborn. In the case of abortion, we’re saying, “Get this out of me, fast.” The child growing inside of the pregnant woman is apparently deemed a disease to be removed.

It should go without saying, but we shouldn’t think of pregnancy as cancer to be removed. The vulnerable unborn, no matter the circumstances surrounding the pregnancy, is an image bearer of Christ – the same as the pregnant woman making the decisions.

Further, one of the court filings was from Jason Lindo, Professor of Economics at Texas A&M, defending the FDA’s perspective of the need for the abortion pill to be readily available to women. As an economics professor, he used an economics argument, essentially saying that the mother who typically needs access to the abortion pill – lives in poverty, has a low education level, and so on. The idea is, if a woman has her child, then said child will be born into disadvantages and is more likely to live in poverty, fail in school, and suffer negative economic outcomes.

Don’t we know by now that, if we really want to end poverty, increase education, and decrease the crime rate, the path forward is more abortions?! 

I hope you’re picking up the sarcasm I’m laying down. But I can’t do this topic justice here. That’s why Roland and Vince discuss the briefing, what’s missing, and what’s behind this twisting of truth at every level.

As this CareCast episode makes clear, the world seeks a culture of death, as we engage in the life issue, we must be consistent and continue defending the vulnerable, of which the unborn child is chief. I encourage you to listen to Roland and Vince’s latest CareCast.
