National pro-life advocacy group Students for Life of America wrote the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Monday about the dangers associated with chemical abortion drug RU 486, urging the FDA to maintain the abortion pill’s existing safety standards, crack down on entities illegally providing the drug and investigate the environmental impact disposing of human fetal remains via lavatories nationwide has on the U.S. water system.
“Given the deadly consequences of the drugs for women and certainly the preborn, no public policy interest is served in recklessly handing out pills that can cause death, and with 40 percent of abortions now painfully ending on toilets across America, Students for Life has grave concerns about the impact of human remains in America’s waterways,” SFLA President Kristan Hawkins said in a statement….
Hawkins said. “With 40% of all abortions committed with chemical abortion pills in which women are sent home to bleed profusely and flush a pre-born child away, it’s important to understand how that is impacting the environment, especially as California prepares to require its public colleges and universities to distribute the deadly drugs.”
California had passed a law last year requiring distribution of chemical abortion pills on its college campuses.
“The college students who work with us have tremendous concern about the environment,” said Hawkins, “and as states such as California push forward a policy to require distribution of chemical abortion drugs on campuses, such students will be exposed to blood and human tissue in the dorms and other student housing as will those who work in school physical plants and in maintenance.”
