Attacks on SB 20 continue as US District Judge places injunctions on two key provisions

Published on

US District Judge Katherine Eagles has granted a preliminary injunction blocking two important provisions in The Care for Women, Children and Families Act. NCRTL views this as further evidence of the abortion lobby’s disregard for the lives of both the unborn child and the woman.

Firstly, Judge Eagles has halted the requirement that abortionists perform an ultrasound on women prior to prescribing the chemical abortion pill, mifepristone. The objective of this provision was to rule out the possibility of an ectopic pregnancy, which is a life-threatening condition, particularly if the woman takes an abortifacient drug.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a warning indicating that one of the contraindications to the abortion pill mifepristone (Mifeprex) is the presence of an ectopic pregnancy. Dr. Bill Pincus, President of the National Center for Reason and Justice (NCRTL), has noted that the FDA’s own website reports 28 deaths from mifepristone from 2000 to July 2022. A total of 97 ectopic pregnancies have been reported, but it should be noted that from 2016 until the present, only maternal death was required to be reported as an adverse effect. Therefore, it is unclear how many additional ectopic pregnancies involving mifepristone may have occurred during this seven-year period.

The requirement of an ultrasound prior to the prescription of the abortion pill serves to verify the pregnancy status of the woman. However, the visualisation of the unborn child in an ultrasound image is not a priority for the abortion lobby. Judge Eagles has cited concerns regarding the lack of clarity and the absence of a standardised approach for the determination of pregnancy status, which he believes may impede the ability of healthcare providers to make informed decisions.

Judge Eagles has put a stop to a new law that would have required abortions after 12 weeks to be done in a hospital. The new law allows abortions after 12 weeks in cases of rape, incest, fatal fetal anomaly, and danger to the mother.

It is well documented that the risk of life-threatening complications to the mother increases with the gestational age of the fetus. It is also known that abortion clinics transfer women to hospitals when complications arise. Abortion clinics exist to terminate a pregnancy and, as such, do not have the capacity to deal with life-threatening situations as they occur for the woman. Therefore, the requirement that second and third trimester abortions occur in the hospital setting is justified.

The abortion lobby has once again demonstrated that their primary concern is not the health of women, as they claim. If they were genuinely concerned about women’s health, they would advocate for policies that place women in the safest possible situations, providing them with the most comprehensive knowledge, certainty, and “choice” regarding their pregnancy and their unborn baby. However, it appears that their primary motivation is the termination of pregnancies, even when it results in the mother’s health being jeopardized, and in some cases, her life.

Dr. Pincus notes that “healthcare is the art and science of improving and saving life, not the destruction of the most innocent of all—the unborn baby.”
