Last week the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that the first chemical abortion pill can be prescribed via telehealth. This means that a pregnant woman can access an abortion-inducing drug without seeing a medical professional in-person and undergo this dangerous, life-taking procedure without a physician present.
In many states, including Wisconsin, chemical abortions must take place with a physician present because of the severe risk it presents to the mother. Thankfully, the FDA’s announcement does not override Wisconsin’s requirement for an in-person prescription and professional oversight of chemical abortions.
Abortion is wrong under any circumstance, but this policy significantly decreases the value of unborn life and the life of the mother by making a potent abortion-inducing medication so easy to attain. As believers, we should make it a point to intentionally celebrate life, encourage the next generation to consider children as a blessing from the Lord and delight in God’s ordination of the family unit.
“The child is not the mere creature of the State; those who nurture him and direct his destiny have the right, coupled with the high duty, to recognize and prepare him for additional obligations.”
—US Supreme Court, Pierce v. Society of Sisters, 1925

Wisconsin Family Action president Julaine Applings says, “Out of 133 members of the US Senate and the US House who signed on to this important brief regarding states and abortion, I have to say I’m disappointed and a bit surprised that only one of Wisconsin’s congressional delegation signed on—and we have 9 possibilities. That member is Representative Glenn Grothman, a Republican from the Fond du Lac/Oshkosh area.”
