Mar. 30 – Lobby to have RU-486 (Mifeprex) pulled off the market

The lobby to have RU-486 banned is still going strong according to this recent press release:

An official of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) expressed continued support today for the “RU-486 Suspension and Review Act of 2005,” known as “Holly’s Law.” Deirdre A. McQuade, Director of Planning and Information at the Secretariat for Pro-Life Activities addressed a congressional press conference sponsored by Rep. Chris Smith, Rep. Roscoe Bartlett, the bill’s author, and other supporters of the legislation.

“The Bishops’ Conference opposes every abortion as the taking of innocent human life,” said Ms. McQuade. “However, the RU-486 method compounds this offense by also threatening the lives, fertility, and well-being of healthy women.”

Calling Holly’s Law a “very modest bill,” Ms. McQuade called for a House vote at the earliest possible opportunity: “How long will Congress stand idle while more women suffer and die from RU-486? Mifeprex must come off the market now.”
