The pro-life group Created Equal has been out protesting a recent ruling by a federal judge that enables the prescription of chemical abortion drugs without an in-person consultation, due to concerns over COVID-19.
On Monday, U.S. District Judge Theodore Chuang in Maryland granted a preliminary injunction that allowed the chemical abortion drugs mifepristone and its accompanying drug misoprostol to be mailed to patients without an in-person medical visit.
“The abortion industry is using COVID-19 as a Trojan Horse,” Created Equal President Mark Harrington told MRCTV. “They are trying to get a lot of things done under the guise of COVID-19. That’s is taking down these REMS – these face-to-face meetings.”
“Our concern of course is that it’ll never go back. Once COVID is over, the pandemic is over, the requirements will never spring back and that the FDA requirements are gone for good.”
Created Equal has held several protests over the last few days to raise awareness of the issue. MRCTV’s Jessica Kramer caught up with Created Equal protesting outside the Planned Parenthood facility in Washington DC on Wednesday.
