Students for Life of America, a national pro-life organization led by Kristan Hawkins, applauded the court for what it called a "pro-science decision" in a Wednesday blog post.

“The abortion extremists in the Biden Administration through the FDA deliberately allow women to be exposed to injury, infertility, death, and abusers with their online distribution scheme,” Hawkins stated.

“This ruling makes it clear that deadly drugs are being recklessly sold. Let’s not kid ourselves; this is one small step for women, but short the giant leap needed to protect all, including the preborn and even our environment." 

In a blog posted earlier this year, SFLA cited a 2022 post-marketing report from the FDA showing the abortion pill is connected with the deaths of at least 28 women since its approval in 2000. Hawkins also cited multiple studies in a November 2021 National Review article about the number of women who required emergency care after taking the abortion pill.
