Senators Wicker and Hyde-Smith Ask FDA to Remove Abortion Pill

U.S. Senators Roger Wicker and Cindy Hyde-Smith among 20 other senators ask the Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Stephen Hahn to classify an abortion pill as a quote "imminent hazard to the public health".

Senators Hyde-Smith and Wicker are urging Hahn to remove the pill Mifeprex from the U.S. market as they say it quote "poses a significant threat of danger."

When used, Mifeprex can end a pregnancy that is less than 10 weeks along and can control high blood sugar in some patients.

Currently, there is no word on the FDA's response to the letter.
