Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, on Sept. 2 tweeted a piece from National Review reporting that he and numerous other Republican senators had written to the Food and Drug Administration and asked the agency to remove the abortion pill, mifepristone (also known as RU-486 or its brand name, Mifeprex), from the market.

Cruz made additional comments in his tweet that sparked outrage. Many accused the Texas senator of misinformation, misogyny, and more.
