Amidst Mifepristone Legal Battle, Healey Promises Abortion Pill Arsenal

By the tenth week of fetal development, your baby has hands.

Her heart has four chambers. Her eyelids have formed. Her brain is functioning.

But none of that matters to Gov. Maura Healey and the rest of the Democrats on Beacon Hill this week. Our pro-abortion governor loudly announced her executive order mandating protection for accessible nonsurgical abortion, as its federal legality could be at risk. She also publicized the request of the University of Massachusetts to “stockpile” 15,000 doses of mifepristone.

Mifepristone is a drug that begins the process of forced miscarriage. In other, less euphemistic words, mifepristone starves a baby up to ten weeks old in utero. Right now, a woman may be prescribed the pill along with misoprostol to perform her own at-home abortion.

Yes, it’s just as dangerous as it sounds. One life is sure to end, and another is put at serious risk.

One “perfectly successful” dose of mifepristone equals one fetal death. So, Massachusetts taxpayers, your governor—along with the usual cast of coat-holders, sycophants and “advocates”—is celebrating a promise to produce 15,000 fetal casualties over the next year on the public dime, however you might feel about abortion on demand.

And even that isn’t enough for Healey. She’s “in touch” with more pharmaceutical companies to provide more doses for state abortion reserves.

The Planned Parenthood Action Fund must have been so proud to see so many of its endorsements standing together outside the Golden Dome yesterday. Other payroll patriots joining Healey included Lt. Gov. Kim Driscoll, AG Andrea Campbell, Sen. Elizabeth Warren. Rep. Ayanna Pressley, House Speaker Ron Mariano, and Boston Mayor Michelle Wu.

More advocates for fetal suffocation, including at least one man, held pre-printed signs reading, “Don’t mess with my mife.” They could have read, “Don’t mess with my campaign money.” Because if Big Abortion suddenly decided mifepristone weren’t financially lucrative or legally convenient, these politicians would drop their latest deepely-held cause rather quickly.

Also in attendance was MA Senate President Karen Spilka, which disappointed me particularly. After she denounced Framingham Democrat Committee Chair Michael Hugo’s comments about aborting disabled children, I was hopeful she might turn away from the on-demand-and-without-apology abortion regime. I guess I haven’t learned to keep my expectations low for this crowd.

Speaking of disappointment, formerly “pro-life” turncoat Rep. Stephen Lynch voiced his deep concern over a potential lack of access to mifepristone and his support for Healey’s radical measures. How quickly they forget where they came from (Catholic pro-life South Boston, that is). Lynch is hearing the footsteps, obviously. He is terrified of being “Capuano’ed” in a future Democrat primary.

Healey’s hysterical move came in response to last Friday’s U.S. district court ruling in Texas suspending FDA approval for the abortion pill.

As Trump-appointed Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk pointed out, a federal law called the Comstock Act prohibits the trade and circulation of “articles of immoral use” through the mail. This includes any “article, instrument, substance, drug, medicine, or thing which is advertised or described in a manner calculated to lead another to use or apply it for producing abortion.” This would include the mail-order mifepristone pill.

The Comstock Act was entirely ignored during the half-century reign of Roe v. Wade, as the SCOTUS ruling took precedent. Yes, mifepristone was approved by the FDA in 2000. However, due to Roe’s overturning, the Comstock Act is back. That’s the judge’s rationale.

Many on either side of the abortion-pill debate predicted that Big Abortion would pivot to the mifepristone pill, as it turns a steady profit and would (they hoped) allow women in pro-life states terminate pregnancy through online or mail-orders.

The Texas case suspends the FDA’s approval of the pill. The FDA has appealed, so the debate is far from over.

If the judge’s decision is upheld by higher courts, the prohibition on mail-ordering—and, by default, online-ordering—abortion devices could be enforced. This will apply to clinics and drug stores as well. That’s why Gov. Healey is “leading the way” in calling on pharmacies and abortion providers to stockpile it now.

The order explicitly targets colleges and universities, a key market where an arsenal of abortifacients will prove advantageous for the industry.

On average, a dose of mifepristone will cost a woman more than $500. Quick arithmetic will tell you Healey and company are providing $7.5 million in additional taxpayer funds for the abortion mills at the expense of 15,000 little Massachusetts lives.

If they’re still trying to conceal their pro-abortion agenda, the local Democrats are doing a horrible job.
