The Trump administration is appealing a decision that allows women to obtain the abortion pill by mail without seeing a doctor.
At issue is a decision by U.S. District Judge Theodore Chuang in early July that overturned an FDA rule requiring the abortion pill to be administered only in clinics, medical offices or hospitals. Under FDA rules, it is not available in pharmacies. Chuang’s ruling allowed the abortion pill to be mailed to women.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him.
