Is abortion access in peril (even where it's legal)? Supreme Court case could tip balance.

December 14, 2023

The Supreme Court has agreed to hear a case that challenges FDA’s regulation of the abortion drug mifepristone. Sara Rosenbaum told USA Today that if the Supreme Court rules against telemedicine appointments and mailing of mifepristone to patients, it “would be the equivalent of a nationwide ban.” FDA allowed for these options with revisions of the rules for mifepristone in 2016 and 2021, and plaintiffs seek to undo those evidence-based changes.
