AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Ruling against the FDA cannot be legal or a precedent. The judge ruled based on zero scientific evidence. This is the exact story line spun, when the ACA was initiated: Do you want anyone but your Dr to prescribe medication for you? If you prefer dealing with your physician, reject and protest this Judge’s decision to stop the sale of mifepristone!

Senior executives of more than 250 pharmaceutical and biotech companies on Monday issued a scorching condemnation of a ruling by a federal judge that invalidated the Food and Drug Administration’s 23-year-old approval of the abortion pill mifepristone, and they called for the decision to be reversed.

“The decision ignores decades of scientific evidence and legal precedent,” said the letter, which was signed by leaders of some of the industry’s most prominent companies, including Albert Bourla, chief executive of Pfizer, and Alisha Alaimo, president of Biogen.

The ruling, by Judge Matthew J. Kacsmaryk of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas, “has set a precedent for diminishing F.D.A.’s authority over drug approvals, and in so doing, creates uncertainty for the entire biopharma industry,” the letter argues.

The letter also said that pharmaceutical companies rely on the F.D.A.’s autonomy to bring products to market under a “reliable regulatory process for drug evaluation and approval.”
