WASHINGTON D.C. (09-22-2023) – Students for Life Action (SFLAction) Vice President of Political Affairs & Operations Dustin Curtis sent a letter Friday to members of the House, calling for strong protections for women to stay in place, which are part of the Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration Appropriations bill.

In the letter, Curtis noted: “Abortion by mail, the No Test, Online Distribution of Chemical Abortion Pills, is a sex offenders dream scenario. The Biden Administration has exposed women to injury, infertility, death, and abusers with this reckless distribution, along with permitting potential environmental harms from medical waste in our waterways. Even if you support abortion, that’s not an argument in favor of government-sanctioned corporate dumping of chemically tainted placenta tissue, blood, and human remains.



“To prevent these known harms, Students for Life Action is committed to ensuring these protections are in place and will score against final passage of H.R. 4368 if the mifepristone provision is removed. Additionally, SFLAction reserves the right to score procedural and related amendment votes.”

Students for Life of America (SFLA) and SFLAction have prioritized legislation and outreach to detail the deadly nature of Chemical Abortion Pills, so popular with abortionists who want to make a quick sale and walk away from both the women who can be harmed and the preborn as well as the potential environmental hazard left behind.

SFLA has filed four citizen petitions with the FDA that detail the health risks for women from the deadly pills as well as risks to endangered species and the environment.



CLICK HERE to read all of SFLA’s Citizen Petitions calling for:   

  • Adding Red Bag Medical Waste requirements to reduce the pollution from Chemical Abortion Pills;
  • Restoring high health and safety standards (known as REMS – Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategies) to protect women’s lives;
  • Completing studies and ensuring protections for endangered species; and now,
  • Requiring Protections for Water, especially recreational water, in compliance with the Clean Water Act.
