Hochul bucks feds on abortion drug

It doesn’t matter what her alleged faith or the federal government has to say on the matter, Gov. Kathy Hochul will do whatever it takes to ensure abortion is available to any woman demanding it.

“MAGA, anti-abortion extremists, legislators and judges alike are hell-bent on continuing down this path,” the governor said on Tuesday at a virtual event hosted by Planned Parenthood of Greater New York. “They’re coming after all forms of reproductive health care.”

Amazing how she used the term “health care” when it comes to killing a life.

Late last week a federal District Court Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk ordered a hold on the FDA’s approval of mifepristone from 2000, claiming the agency did not do enough safety checks on the drug for women.

The state’s Department of Health is finalizing the purchase of 150,000 doses of misoprostol — at a cost of roughly $100,000 — to keep New Yorkers supplied with pregnancy-ending medication over the next five years.

Misoprostol and mifepristone are typically taken together as a so-called “abortion pill” to terminate early-term pregnancies. U.S. District Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk last week ordered a hold on the FDA’s approval of mifepristone from 2000.

“Last year, the attacks were on abortion procedures,” Hochul said. “This year, medication abortion. What’s next? Contraception? Birth control? Well, I’m here to say, ‘Not New York. Not now, not ever.’”

“Gov. Hochul announces plans to stockpile enough misoprostol to abort 150,000 unborn babies over the next five years, and to force health insurers to cover it,” the New York State Catholic Conference tweeted in response to Hochul.

“New York is already the abortion capital of the country, yet our leaders keep finding new ways to expand it even further,” a second post added. “Women who want to keep their babies and need support are too often an afterthought as politicians pander to Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry.”
