A coalition of doctors and a legal defense organization called for an investigation of Planned Parenthood of Northern New England's illegal sale of abortion-inducing drugs, which Planned Parenthood sold after the FDA's permission of 49 days from a women's last menstrual cycle.
Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF)-allied attorney Michael J. Tierney says that the New Hampshire Planned Parenthood has been violating the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) protocols for abortion-inducing drugs, when it "publicly advertises" that such drugs may be taken at home and up to 63 days past the last cycle.

Anthony List, told The Christian Post in a Thursday interview.
