By Dave Andrusko It may be, and likely is, only a temporary stay, but earlier this month Health Canada asked for more information from the European drug company that has applied to sell RU-486 in Canada. The request, made of Linepharma International, means the federal regulator is unlikely to issue a ruling until later …Continue reading "Health Canada asks for more information as it considers application to sell RU in Canada"
By Mike Schouten Health Canada will soon make a decision on an application to make RU-486 available in our country. It has been over two years since the application was made by Linepharma International. The small European drug company applied to have its 200 mg mifepristone tablet approved in October, 2012. This was the …Continue reading "Another skipped abortion debate in Canada"
By Dave Andrusko In October, NRL News Today reported that the North Dakota Supreme Court had reversed a ruling by District Judge Wickham Corwin and upheld a 2011 law which regulates how chemical abortifacients—generically referred to as “RU486”—are administered to women. Tammi Kromenaker, director of North Dakota’s sole abortion provider, almost immediately told the …Continue reading "North Dakota Supreme Court declines to rehear arguments in decision that upheld law regulating chemical abortions"
By Sarah Terzo In an article in the Washington Times, author Hanna Rosin quotes abortion provider Kathy Rogers saying: [RU-486 is] not just a pill; it’s a process. And it’s not going to be fast or easy or simple. Rosin discusses why some women choose to undergo chemical abortions, even though they are so …Continue reading "The abortion pill as a form of penance?"
By Dave Andrusko On Tuesday the North Dakota Supreme Court upheld a 2011 law which regulates how chemical abortifacients—generically referred to as “RU486”—are administered to women. In so doing, the state’s highest court reversed a ruling by District Judge Wickham Corwin who routinely hammers pro-life laws with relish. Tammi Kromenaker, director of North Dakota’s …Continue reading "North Dakota Supreme Court upholds law regulating chemical abortions; lone abortion clinic says it will stop performing chemical abortions"
By Dave Andrusko Earlier this month, NRL News Today reported on two challenges by pro-abortion groups brought against laws passed by the Oklahoma legislature and signed into law by pro-life Gov. Mary Fallin.

By Dave Andrusko As we have documented in exhaustive detail, one wing of the Abortion Movement (and not an insignificant one) has become militantly insistent that women have the “right” to self-abort. And never you mind about state laws, the incredible dangers of buying powerful chemical abortifacients sight unseen, and their own version of …Continue reading "Playing the victim card ignores the real victim: the unborn baby"
By Dave Andrusko NRLC’s Dr. Randall K. O’Bannon knows as much about chemical abortions as anyone in our Movement. Yesterday he posted about the deeply deceptive way chemical abortion drugs are marketed worldwide. “What is clear now is that chemical abortion has become big business, on a global scale, and a lot pharmaceutical entrepreneurs …Continue reading "The Global traffic in abortion drugs and the drive to legitimize Do-It-Yourself Abortions"
By Sarah Terzo Molly Yard, former president of NOW, said that the abortion pill was: “…[Perhaps even] the most significant medical advance in human history and the symbol of a brighter future for women everywhere.”  This quote shows how out of touch with reality some pro-choice leaders are. To think that the abortion …Continue reading "Pres. of NOW: “Abortion pill the most significant medical advance in human history”"
By Randall K. O’Bannon, Ph.D., NRL Director of Education & Research If there wasn’t enough confusion already, we now find that the abortion drug mifepristone (the generic name for RU-486) is being produced in other countries and sold under other names. Why does that matter? It’s a wake-up call for anyone who thought that …Continue reading "The Abortion Pill Known as “RU-486”: By any other name… Just as deadly"
By Dave Andrusko When last we wrote about Arizona’s HB 2036 which requires that any abortion-inducing drugs be administered “in compliance with the protocol authorized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration,” a three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals had predictably struck the law down. In 2000, the FDA approved …Continue reading "Arizona A.G. asks Supreme Court to allow law regulating use of RU-486 to go into effect"
Editor’s note. This appeared at ClinicQuotes.
