Biden Administration Takes Abortion-pill Dispute to SCOTUS
The 5th Circuit's decision is currently on hold pending the outcome
On Sept. 8, 2023, President Joe Biden's administration took its battle to preserve broad access to the abortion pill mifepristone to the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) as it appealed a lower court's ruling that would curb how the drug is delivered and distributed.
The Department of Justice (DOJ) said it filed its appeal of an August decision by the New Orleans-based 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that would bar telemedicine prescriptions and shipments of mifepristone by mail. The drug's manufacturer, Danco Laboratories, also said it filed its appeal on Friday.
The 5th Circuit's decision is currently on hold pending the outcome of the administration's appeal at the Supreme Court.
