Students for Life Action Demands EPA Include Chemical Abortion Pill Pollutants in Their National Water Limits   

“The Environmental Protection Agency’s delight with their delayed response to the dangers of forever chemicals is clear in their plans to ignore the dangers of medical waste in our water supply until November 2026,” noted Students for Life of America President Kristan Hawkins. “By refusing to include or even consider the Chemical Abortion Pill pollutants that kill thousands of babies and threaten endangered species on their special list, it’s obvious again that the radical abortion lobby has DeFacto permission to pollute water with chemically tainted blood, placenta tissue, and human remains.”  

WASHINGTON D.C. (04-11-2024) –  Following news reported in The Hill regarding the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) “first ever” national limits on forever chemicals in the drinking water, Students for Life Action President Kristan Hawkins noted that the Pro-Life Generation along with more than 40 pro-life organizations has been calling on the EPA to track the forever chemicals of Chemical Abortion Pills, making today’s the EPA’s announcement “more evidence of the power of the radical abortion lobby over the Biden Administration.”

She continued, “No other industry has been given such carte blanch support for dumping medical waste into our waterways. And recently, in response to our calls for tracking forever chemical from the abortion, the EPA wrote back that they just didn’t have time to hold Big Abortion Pharma accountable.

“In fact, the pretend environmental watchdogs, wrote ‘The EPA anticipates issuing the final Regulatory Determinations from the most recent Contaminant Candidate List by March 2026 and publishing the next iteration of the Contaminant Candidate List in November 2026.’ This allows abortion pill pushers to ignore the environmental hazards FOR YEARS to come.”  

“While it’s nice to see the EPA saying they plan to take their job seriously, they’re leaving the job more than half done – the dangerous endocrine disruptors found in Chemical Abortion Pills are still largely being flushed into America’s waterways through human remains, and this is as dangerous as the forever chemicals they’re now focused on. We call upon Congress to demand that the EPA expand the scope of their focus, follow their own rules regarding the disposal of human waste, and address the concerns of millions of Americans that have thus far gone largely ignored.” 

The EPA warns not to flush drugs, chemicals, and even goldfish. Hospitals dispose of placentas carefully as medical waste, and brick-and-mortar abortion vendors are supposed to follow state laws with human remains. 

“With the rise in prevalence of Chemical Abortion Pills now making up 63% of abortions, the frequency at which endocrine disruptors enter the water supply are on the rise. Even if you support abortion, that’s not an argument for the No Test, Online Distribution of Chemical Abortion Pills that create potential environmental pollution.” 

These substances can affect people in numerous significant ways, by impacting their reproductivity, mental development, hormone production and increase rates of cholesterol, cancer, and obesity.   

This is a battle that SFLAction and our sister organization, Students for Life of America (SFLA) have been fighting for a long time: 

  • In February, SFLAction submitted a letter to Congress, alongside forty other pro-life leaders, to demand the EPA conduct regular and comprehensive environmental testing of PFAs just like any other “forever chemical.”  
  • We also submitted a legal analysis to EPA with detailed reasons to track Chemical Abortion Pills. 
  • SFLA also submitted an amicus brief to the U.S. Supreme Court for the S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) v. Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine which took place last month.   
  • In multiple states, SFLAction has lobbied to introduce and ensure passage of laws that would protect the environment from pollutants in Chemical Abortion Pills.
  • Additionally, we submitted four petitions to the FDA demanding they:
    • Add Red Bag Medical Waste requirements to reduce Chemical Abortion Pill pollution.
    • Restore high health and safety standards (known as REMS – Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategies) to protect women’s lives.
    • Complete studies to ensure protection for endangered species.
    • Comply with the Clean Water Act by requiring protection for water, especially recreational water.

SFLA also launched the What’s In The Water? Campaign to illustrate the full scope and impact of the damage that Chemical Abortion Pill pollutants in the wastewater can cause. 

SFLA’s Demetree Institute for Pro-Life Advancement/YouGov poll found that more than nine in 10 registered youth voters supported health and safety standards for the deadly drugs as well as environmental protections.
