SCOTUS rejects bid by anti-abortion groups to limit access to abortion pill

  • Staff Report 

The U.S. Supreme Court has unanimously rejected a bid by anti-abortion groups to limit access to the abortion pill mifepristone, maintaining its availability for millions of women in states where abortion is legal.


Despite the ruling, access to mifepristone remains dependent on state laws. About half of the states allow full access as approved by the FDA, which includes telehealth prescribing and mail delivery.

Legal experts note that the court’s decision is significant but doesn’t eliminate future legal challenges. Some states and groups may still attempt to restrict the drug’s use. For now, mifepristone remains fully available under the current FDA guidelines, ensuring that women in states with supportive laws can continue to access this important medication.
