NH illegally allowing non-pharmacists
to distribute abortion pills

New lawsuit exposes risks to women

 

KEENE, N.H. — The New Hampshire Board of Pharmacy is illegally allowing non-pharmacists to distribute abortion pills past the period that the Food and Drug Administration has determined safe. A lawsuit filed Friday also says the board has allowed distribution for take-home use, a practice the FDA found has led to several maternal deaths and hospitalizations for hemorrhaging and excessive bleeding.

The lawsuit, filed by Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys and allied attorneys, asks Cheshire County Superior Court to affirm that state law requires FDA safety protocols. The suit also asks the court to stop the Board of Pharmacy from granting licenses to abortion facilities in violation of those protocols.
