FDA Sidesteps Red States That Block Abortion

As red state after red state play hardball with abortion restrictions, the FDA figures out a work-around. Good for them. (Typical Obama play.)

Two and done. Now watch to see if states pass laws to get in the way of this solution.

Ending a pregnancy is no easy decision, and not all women who wish to do so can opt for an abortion drug. But its use is becoming more common these days, and states like Texas, for instance, require doctors with admitting privileges at local hospitals AND abortion clinics to follow hospital-grade surgical standards just to hand a woman two pills. It's absurd.

Now the FDA is changing all that, effective immediately. Now nurse practitioners, for example, can prescribe the two-drug course. That's a pretty big game changer in today's anti-abortion climate.

Read about it in the WaPo.

Just to be clear, I'm not a fan of abortion. I expect few people are. But I'm not a fan of men telling women what to do with their bodies. Period. It's all about religiously inspired paternalism. Stupid Stone Age bullshit.
