BREAKING: Supreme Court Preserves Access To Abortion Pill – For Now

  • The Supreme Court on Friday said the abortion pill mifepristone will remain broadly available as litigation plays out.
  • The high court’s decision Friday came in response to an emergency request by the Justice Department to block lower court rulings that would severely limit access to the medication even in some states where abortion remains legal.
  • Mifepristone has become the central flashpoint in the legal battle over abortion since the Supreme Court last summer overturned Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 decision that guaranteed abortion as a constitutional right nationwide.
