Dr. Grazie Christie, Senior Fellow with The Catholic Association, issued the following statement regarding today’s oral argument in the Supreme Court case of FDA v. Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine:

“It is alarming that the Food and Drug Administration has placed politics above the health and safety of women and girls in the case of abortion drugs. The FDA, which is tasked with “ensuring the safety, efficacy, and security” of drugs has ignored science and common sense by removing every meaningful safeguard around mifepristone, including critical in-person medical oversight. Regardless of whether one is pro-choice or pro-life, we should all want to maximize the safety of pregnant women. And the FDA has a legal obligation to do so.”

Grazie also filed an amicus brief in the case on behalf of The Catholic Association.
