Christian Coalition Urges the U.S. House to Pass Congressman Bartlett's "Holly's Law", Taking Abortion Pill off the Market
Washington, D.C. -- Christian Coalition of America commends Congressman Roscoe Bartlett, (R-MD), for reintroducing his "Holly's Law" legislation, H.R. 1079 (with 78 cosponsors) during the 109th Congress. And Senator Jim DeMint, (R-SC), is also to be commended for authoring the Senate version, S. 511, (with 12 cosponsors) of Congressman Bartlett's legislation. Congressman Bartlett has discovered new evidence in FDA documents, which show an unacceptably high incidence of deaths and terrible injuries to women who take the RU486 abortion pill.
The Bartlett/DeMint legislation will withdraw the approved application under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act for the drug commonly known as RU-486 and provides for a review by the Comptroller General of the United States of the process by which the Food and Drug Administration approved such a drug.
The President of the Christian Coalition of America, Roberta Combs said, "Christian Coalition of America wholeheartedly supports "Holly's Law." It is almost criminal that the federal government has refused to remove this deadly abortion pill from the market when young girls' lives have been destroyed after taking RU486. If Members of Congress really care about the lives and health of women in this country, it is long past time for the United States Congress to pass "Holly's Law."
