SCOTUS Preserves Broad Access to Abortion Pill
This delivered a victory to women, President Biden's administration
Today, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) blocked new restrictions set by lower courts on a widely used abortion pill, delivering a victory to President Joe Biden's administration as it defends broad access to the drug in the latest fierce legal battle over reproductive rights in the United States.
The justices, in a brief order, granted emergency requests by the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) and the pill's manufacturer Danco Laboratories to put on hold an April 7 preliminary injunction issued by U.S. District Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk in Texas. The judge's order would greatly limit the availability of mifepristone while litigation proceeds in a challenge by anti-abortion groups to its federal regulatory approval.
Conservative Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito publicly dissented from the decision.
