Schumer warned that this decision “could throw our country into chaos.”

During Saturday’s press briefing, Schumer informed the reporters:
“This right-wing MAGA judge, in his zeal to impose his own views on the American people, has suspended this long time FDA-approved medication over the agency and the drug manufacturer’s opinion.”
U.S. District Judge Mathhew J. Kacsmaryk, who was appointed by former President Donald Trump, delivered a controversial ruling against the approval of mifepristone by the FDA.
The order is expected to take effect after seven days of the delivered ruling.
Judge Kacsmaryk wrote:
“Before Plaintiffs filed this case, FDA ignored their petitions for over sixteen years, even though the law requires an agency response within ‘180 days of receipt of the petition”
“Plaintiffs have credibly alleged past and future harm resulting from the removal of restrictions for chemical abortion drugs.”
The order by Judge Kacsmaryk has been widely criticized by many Democrat lawmakers, abortion rights groups and the manufacturer of mifepristone, Danco Laboratories.
Moreover, the Justice Department promptly initiated an appeal of Kacsmaryk’s decision to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.
According to the absurd claims by Democrats, the GOP is plotting to take away the rights of women by banning abortion nationwide.
Schumer argued that the Texas court’s ruling is making way for other medication, which has been already approved by the FDA, to be removed by “extreme plaintiffs” who come across an “extreme judge” and “get their way.”
“What could come next if some fringe radical group brings a lawsuit? Cancer drugs? Insulin? Mental health treatment?”
“Make no mistake, the decision could throw our country into chaos. It’ll set a dangerous new precedent, and it will put lives in jeopardy.”
