A major academic publisher has retracted three articles by a leading pro-life research group, including a study raising medical concerns about the abortion pill ahead of a Supreme Court hearing on the drug’s federal approval.
Sage Journals removed three articles published in 2019, 2021 and 2022 by the pro-life Charlotte Lozier Institute, citing concerns about conflicts of interest and “lack of scientific rigor,” which prompted the institute to accuse Sage of an “unprovoked and partisan assault” on its research.
The studies were pulled Monday, a week after the Supreme Court scheduled oral arguments for March 26 in Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine v. FDA, a case challenging the Food and Drug Administration’s 2000 approval of mifepristone for pregnancy termination.
In April, U.S. District Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk placed a temporary hold on the approval, citing the institute’s 2021 study of Medicaid claims data, which found the rate of abortion-related emergency-room visits by women who had taken the abortion pill within the previous 30 days jumped by 500% from 2002 to 2015.
“Sage is targeting us because we have been successful in calling attention to some of the dangers that are associated with abortion, and specifically chemical abortion,” said James Studnicki, Lozier vice president for data analytics and the lead author on all three studies.
