Sen. Ted Cruz Roasted For Comment On “Abortion Pill”

USA Today reports:

Sen. Ted Cruz came under fire from abortion-rights proponents after saying Wednesday on social media that pregnancy is not a “life-threatening illness” when the U.S. has the highest maternal death rate out of the world’s developed nations.

Cruz made the comment in a tweet promoting a letter signed by himself and other Republican senators calling on the Food and Drug Administration to declare Mifeprex, also known as the “abortion pill,” an “imminent hazard to the public health” and removed from the market.
