Part II from Gerald Nadal on Ella

by Chris Gacek

September 17, 2010

Dr. Gerald Nadal has posted the second part of his article discussing the approval of Ella (ulipristal). The first story discussed Ella’s abortifacient properties. In the second installment, Nadal discusses the lack of transparency characteristic of the FDA’s handling of the Ella drug application. Go here for his analysis which cites to a filing by the American Association of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (AAPLOG) under the leadership of Dr. Donna Harrison. (Nadal provides a link to the AAPLOG filing.)

A Science-Medicine Website Supporting Pro-Life Positions; Ella

by Chris Gacek

September 3, 2010

A Google Alert I set up to track web postings related to the new drug, Ella (ulipristal; ulipristal acetate), produced an interesting result. Ella, recently approved by FDA as an emergency contraceptive, closely resembles RU-486 chemically. Like RU-486, it is emrbryo-toxic and is an abortifacient.

The Google Alert picked up an interesting web posting on Ella by Dr. Gerard Nadal who holds an earned doctorate in molecular microbiology from St. Johns University (NYC). Nadal calls his website Coming Home, and he proclaims its mission as being Science in Service of the Pro-Life Movement. Here is his bio. Nadal recently joined the Center for Morality in Public Life as an editor and columnist.

In his posting on FDAs new emergency contraceptive/abortifacient, Ella: Untangling the Ball of Lies (Part 1), is the sort of well-written document that makes complex subjects easy to understand due to the authors range and depth of knowledge. Here are the final two paragraphs:

Thus we see that Ella simultaneously blocks the production of progesterone and blocks it from binding to its receptors in the uterine lining, producing a miscarriage. This can happen at any time in the pregnancy. It also acts to destroy the endometrium before the embryo reaches it for implantation.

If this level of outright lying and obfuscation is profoundly disturbing, the safety standards that were deliberately ignored and the clinical trials never performed on the road to approval are nothing less than scandalous. In Part II, the story of how Ella was shepherded past the safety standards in product development, clinical trials and FDA approval.

I cant wait for Part II.

Watson Pharmaceuticals Pushing to Have New Abortion Drug on Market Soon

by Family Research Council

August 24, 2010

Despite the public outcry against ella, Watson Pharmaceuticals is moving quickly to get the new abortion drug on the market. Ella, recently approved by the FDA, is misleadingly labeled an emergency contraceptive (EC), but can abort an already implanted baby. Despite the fact that this drug denies American women the right to informed consent, it will be available in the United States as early as October, 2010.

Myth And Fact: The Truth About Ella And How It Works

by Family Research Council

July 15, 2010

Weve previously written about the Food and Drug Administrations (FDA) review of what is being labeled a new and more effective emergency contraceptive, ulipristal acetate, better known by its trade name, Ella.

The controversial drug is a very effective contraceptive, but lesser known is the critical information that the drug can also cause abortions and chemically and functionally resembles the one legal abortion pill in the U.S., mifepristone (RU-486).

There are many serious misconceptions about this drug under consideration for approval. To learn more, please see the following information compiled by FRC.
