White House Braces for Ruling on Abortion Pill's Fate
The administration intends to push back on efforts to ban it
The Biden administration is preparing for a worst-case scenario if a conservative federal judge rules in favor of a lawsuit seeking to restrict access to one of the two drugs typically used to induce a medicated abortion.
