“Now we’re seeing those drugs trafficked illegally into our state. Right now, in Houston, we see a lawsuit by a husband against three women because they helped his wife obtain an abortion,” said Amy O’Donnell with Texas Alliance For Life. “We’re excited to see where that case goes, what we hear. The reality of it is they do harm women.”

O’Donnell says studies in Finland show up to 40 percent of women who take abortion drugs have complications, but the National Institutes of Health says abortion pills have a two percent complication rate. First-trimester surgical abortions have a 1.3 percent complication rate.

Texas passed a trigger law making performing an abortion a crime punishable by up to life in prison, ABC reported. The law, however, did not go into effect until August 2022, which makes the legality of the case controversial.

Joe Pojman with Texas Alliance for Life told Fox 29 that the legal action could set a precedent for future cases.

“I hope the unborn children’s lives are not taken but if they are, this could be a really important example for someone,” Pojman said. “I’m hopeful this could mean justice for the unborn child, I’m hopeful that for father of the child could get some kind of compensation for it such that this would never ever happen again.”

Charles “Rocky” Rhodes, a South Texas College of Law law professor, told ABC he believes the lawsuit could gain traction.

“It’s scary to think that you can be sued for significant damages for helping a friend undertake acts that help her have even a self-medicated abortion,” Rhodes said. “Obviously, the allegations would have to be proven, but there is potentially merit to this suit under Texas’ abortion laws as they exist now.”

Walgreens’ decision further limits women’s abortions options in Texas.

It’s the news some are celebrating.

“We’re grateful to see that work having an effect where life is protected,” Amy O’Donnell with Texas Alliance for Life said.

Walgreens said they are not distributing mifepristone at this time.

“In Texas now that life is protected from conception on, it’s not legal for these drugs to be dispensed, either through Walgreens or through a physician for the purpose of a woman obtaining an abortion. We want to see women protected even as we work towards protecting babies,” O’Donnell said.

The letter was also sent to rival drug store chain CVS who has not yet responded.

Because of Senate Bill 8, in response to the DOJ’s ruling, Texans can expect to see cases challenging the decision to take place in courts across the state.

According to Amy O’Donnell, public policy team member at Texas Alliance for Life, the opinion concentrates primarily on the services provided by the US Postal Service and their inability to be at fault for these deliveries but does not clear other organizations or individuals from providing these pills in state.

“The law remains in effect in Texas, meaning that anybody who sends those chemical abortion drugs to women in Texas, with the intent of them having an abortion using the medication, creates a criminal offense to stand trial and be held accountable in Texas,” O’Donnell said.

“It’s really about protecting women,” Texas Alliance for Life Communications Director Amy O’Donnell said.

O’Donnell said banning mail-order abortion drugs in Texas ensures women are not put at risk.

“A woman cannot receive abortion inducing drugs without first seeing a physician who can ascertain how long her pregnancy is gestationally, whether a woman is RH negative, and if a woman has an ectopic pregnancy and receives those drugs in the mail, it can cost her life,” O’Donnell said.

The FDA states the use of Mifepristone in a regimen with Misoprostol is safe and effective for the medical termination of early pregnancy.
