A New York City woman pleaded guilty to conspiracy Thursday after she supplied abortion-inducing drugs that a Wisconsin Rapids-area man is accused of slipping into his pregnant girlfriend's drink.
Ursula Wing, 42, sold jewelry online that was a front for her unlawful imported prescriptions for sale, Assistant U.S. Attorney Dan Graber told federal District Judge James Peterson on Thursday in Madison.
Graber laid out the scheme in detail
- Wing imported Mifepristone and Misoprostol from India and sold them in kits for $85 to induce early-term abortions and treat related complications.
- On customs forms, Wing falsely declared that the medications were for her personal use.
- The Food and Drug Administration permits the drugs to be prescribed by a licensed physician, dispensed by a pharmacist and administrated in a health care facility under supervision of a health care professional. Wing didn’t have a license to even sell or ship the drugs.
- Customers paid with credit cards and the purchases were recorded as jewelry, not drugs.
