SCOTUS Maintains Access to Abortion Pill 

The majority decides not to ban mifepristone while the case makes its way through lower courts. 

On Friday, the U.S. Supreme Court decided to allow current levels of access to the drug mifepristone while litigation continues in lower courts regarding the methods the Food and Drug Administration used in approving it. The ruling overturns restrictions set in place by lower courts.

The drug has become the most common method of abortion in the U.S. after the FDA expanded access through telemedicine prescription, mail delivery, retail pharmacy dispensing, and the approval of a generic version of the drug

Justices Alito and Thomas dissented from the decision that granted the emergency request from President Biden’s administration and the New York drug maker.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For wisdom for the judges in the Fifth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals as they hear the case regarding the abortion drug.
  • For the hearts and minds of the American people to be awakened to the sanctity and value of unborn life.
