ALL and STOPP among Pro-Life Leaders Who Urge the FDA to ‘Protect Women’
WASHINGTON, D.C. (04 May 2020) – Today, American Life League president Judie Brown and STOPP International founder Jim Sedlak were among the pro-life leaders who sent a letter to the US Food and Drug Administration commissioner, Dr. Stephen Hahn.
The letter urges Hahn to take action to stop the illegal Internet sale of abortion-inducing drugs manufactured overseas and shipped into the US. It explains that the abortion drug Mifeprex, and the generic mifepristone, cannot legally be sold in pharmacies or online because of the risk of serious complications as detailed by the FDA’s Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy. However, websites such as AidAccess and Rablon are doing so anyway.
“The abortion industry is losing support all across the United States and is being forced to close down thousands of abortion locations. It wants to increase its body count, and its profits, by illegally providing dangerous abortion pills through the Internet with delivery through the mail. We must not allow this to happen,” said Jim Sedlak, executive director of American Life League.

American Life League is the nation’s oldest grassroots, Catholic, pro-life organization. Its president, Judie Brown, has led the organization since its 1979 beginning. She has served three terms on the Pontifical Academy for Life—appointed twice by Pope John Paul II and again by Pope Benedict XVI.
