RU-486 Suspension and Review Act

I have not seen any other Catholic bloggers pick this up so here it is...

Rep. Roscoe Bartlett (R-MD) introduced a bill on January 4th to withdraw the abortion pill RU-486 from the market and require a Comptroller General investigation of FDA’s approval of the drug that has been implicated in fatal infections that have killed a handful of women.

Bartlett’s spokesperson said the congressman did not try to recruit cosponsors before the introduction because new members were not yet sworn in and veteran members were busy moving offices after control of Congress changed party hands. Bartlett plans to recruit cosponsors now that formalities are over and Congress is settling back into a groove.

The bill is H.R. 63. It was referred to the House Committee on Energy and Commerce.
