Episode 235

A Tale of Two Abortion Pill Lawsuits

Chelsea and I continue from last week's discussion as news is quickly flying over the abortion pill and abortion pill reversal.

Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine v. FDA. The question over the abortion pill mifepristone's legitimacy in heads back down to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals after the Supreme Court stayed all lower decisions. Oral arguments are scheduled May 17.

Bella Health and Wellness v. Weiser. The question over the abortion pill reversal in Colorado now heads up to a federal district court. Immediately after Governor Polis signed three radical abortion bills, including the infamous SB23-190 that chills pregnancy centers and bans abortion pill reversal, Bella Health and Wellness, a Catholic non-profit group of three medical clinics filed a lawsuit: Bella Health and Wellness v. Weiser. Judge Daniel Domenico issues a temporary restraint on the law for Bella. The lawsuit claims the brand new law is unconstitutional on several levels.

Colorado executives and health agencies said they would not enforce the abortion pill reversal ban until October 1: a deadline for health agencies to give a thumbs up for the abortion pill reversal protocol. The Attorney General now claims that Bella has no standing to sue. But Bella naturally believes abortion pill reversal should be allowed for more than five mere months.

The day this episode airs, Judge Domenico is scheduled to hear oral arguments over if he should extend the restraint until a trial.
