One of the best ways to achieve a desired outcome in data analysis is to choose not to collect the data which might prove pesky. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), responsible for assuring the safety and efficacy of our nation’s pharmaceuticals, has a mission to be both rigorous and thorough in the collection and analysis of medical data. The American people expect nothing less.
But the Biden Administration’s nominee to head the FDA is apparently comfortable accepting less. Robert Califf’s nomination is scheduled for a Senate committee vote later this week.
Califf is a medical doctor and researcher well known for his experience and success in designing and evaluating large-scale clinical and pharmaceutical studies. He’s been praised for his meticulous analysis of statistics and described as a fervent believer in data.
But his record raises questions about how fervent a believer he really is. Califf headed the FDA once before, under President Obama. In 2016, pressured by pro-abortion activists within and outside the Obama Administration, he authorized the FDA to weaken data reporting requirements on medical complications that result from chemical abortions. Since then, the only adverse event the FDA requires to be reported is death.
The abortion industry has long championed mail-order abortion. Minimizing the record of adverse complications helps the cause. By deliberately reducing collection of potentially pesky data on medical complications, Califf paved the way for the FDA’s recent decision to eliminate longstanding patient safeguards, including the requirement that abortion pills be dispensed in person, which provided an opportunity to identify common risk factors and potential abuse.
