Legislators, my immediate family, my extended family, and my friends ask thst you most strongly oppose efforts to ban abortion pills. Please stop these authoritarian efforts, be they well intended or otherwise.

Mifepristone is safer than penicillin or viagra based on 23+ years of US, and 30+ years of global safety & surveillance data. It's also safer than carrying a pregnancy to term given the high maternal mortality rates especially in red states where a pregnant woman won't get medical care while pregnant for cancer, immunologic diseases, miscarriages, etc. which increased 40% in 2022. Hospital maternity wards are being close, and doctors leaving these states, as neither wishes to incur the risks of lawsuits or losing licenses creating maternity care deserts.

Anyone who is not a doctor has no business in the way of federally approved and properly prescribed medication. Period. This includes states, pharmacies, everyone. We need to return to trusting the practice of medicine to those trained and licensed to proactice medicine and get everyone else out of the process.

I oppose any ban on the abortion pill! Every woman has the right to abortion! Woman's rights are human rights!

I am to old to ever worry about ever needing this pill. But I am in favor of individual choices. We should not be ruled by peoples religious beliefs. This should be controlled by medical people not judges or the religious mafia.

I just don't see a lot of these do gooders jumping up to become foster parents or adopting children in need. But they are fast to condemn someone willing or knowing they can't bring a child into this world and give it all it needs. These are the same folks who support budget cutting health care, SNAP availability. This pill should be available to all with medical care. We need to be looking at this for economical reasoning, not some slanted religious belief.

I am not a big fan of abortions, but that is me. In my opinion if a pill works, then allow it. I would imagine there comes medical leadership in the use of the pill. As long as tax dollars are not used to purchase the prescription, so be it. I imagine this is much safer than have to searching out the old coat hanger abortionist. I understand the concept of pro life, but I do not understand people willing to destroy someone else's welfare. Especially when having a child, for whatever reason can not in all goodness support a child at this time. It is a major decision for that individual, and they surely don't need outside non-medical harassment.

We do not need to track abortion pills as this is an invasion of personal privacy!
What happens between a patient and a persons doctor is NO business of government unless it's in a blind study, that has the consent of the people involved!

they don't really care, it's just to stir up their base for political points.

I am just going to be honest--MY THIRD REICH REPS WANT TO BAN ABORTIONS SO MORE BABIES ARE BORN FOR MASS SHOOTERS TO SHOOT DEAD IN SCHOOLS WITH AN AR-15!!! I am just being real!!! I am so sick of my third reich reps who have sold their soul to the devil long ago, so to rot in hell in their afterlife--they want kids to die with massive bullet holes on their bodies. Instead of helping women make a decision, they want to get more future victims in a mass shooters attack. Because to them mass shooters and AR-15 have more rights than women and children . . . So Risch and CRAPo and failed coup congressman Russ "Pimped my mommy to the Racist" Fulcher be real to your families, look them in the eyes and tell them what we all can clearly see--an AR-15 and mass shooters are more important to you than your family is. Be real!!!

Women should have control of their own bodies, their own healthcare. These bills are not only taking away our rights, but promoting the idea that only women who produce live babies should be allowed to live. And too bad if the baby is not viable, or the birth will cause complications in the mother's life, including death. Or, if it is a child who was a victim of a crime.
This is unconscionable! Politicians are not medical experts, they have no right to specify when or why a pregnancy can be terminated. Now we have doctors breaking the Hippocratic Oath, out of fear for themselves.
I remember when my mother finally could sign her actual name on a check, a contract, and open a bank or credit account. This was in the '70's ... are we reverting back to that time, or earlier? Will we lose the right to vote next?
Others may think I am being hysterical, but frankly it makes sense. Remove all of our personal rights, including proper education, then the hope is that we will be more malleable to being relegated to the role of baby production. This has been done before.
I just got paid $9871 working off my laptop this month. And if you think that's cool, my divorced friend has twin toddlers and made over $18950 her first month. It feels so good making so much money when other people have to work for so much less. This is what I do… https://MoneyPro72.pages.dev
Not only the right wing state of Idaho stop delivering babies, but stop supplying women and girls necessary hygiene and this is by a Republican women?

There are a lot of reasons a women may need to take the proven SAFE abortion medication. And, frankly it's none of the politicians business. Same on husbands, boyfriends and fathers that are not supporting the females in their lives.
There are too many contrary opionions out there among the radical right. They want to ban abortion and force women into delivering more babies; is it a population thing? A religious thing? A control thing? Or all of the above. They want to control who will have the right to vote. they want to control what is learned in schools-truth or what they perceive as truth. And, then they want to close the borders and restrict immigration. Sounds like Hitler Germany. He too was a sad little white man who had many mental disorders. These ideas are totally contrary to what America has been about throughout its history. I'm so very saddened to see us move backwards toward the dark ages.

Abortions competed with drugs at home offer no assistance to an expectant mother who just ended a life. Whether she knows it at the time or not, she will need some support after going through something like that. Furthermore, for the environmentalists out there, we are allowing these abortion drugs to be introduced into our sewer and waste water treatment facilities. These facilities clean the water and reintroduce it to the environment, but not all chemicals are removed, including medications and abortive drugs will be no exception. These abortive drugs need to be administered only by doctors and only under emergencies.
It is always wrong to kill an innocent human being. I have contacted my reps and told them that truth.

I agree with Chris Rock that all abortion should be legal up to age 4. This would ensure that this detriment to women's health and finances could be resolved.
