Unanimous Supreme Court Preserves Access to Widely Used Abortion Medication

Washington, DC...(AP) — The Supreme Court on Thursday unanimously preserved access to a medication that was used in nearly two-thirds of all abortions in the U.S. last year, in the court’s first abortion decision since conservative justices overturned Roe v. Wade two years ago.





The nine justices ruled that abortion opponents lacked the legal right to sue over the federal Food and Drug Administration’s approval of the medication, mifepristone, and the FDA’s subsequent actions to ease access to it. The case had threatened to restrict access to mifepristone across the country, including in states where abortion remains legal.

Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who was part of the majority to overturn Roe, wrote for the court on Thursday that “federal courts are the wrong forum for addressing the plaintiffs’ concerns about FDA’s actions.”

Abortion is banned at all stages of pregnancy in 14 states, and after about six weeks of pregnancy in three others, often before women realize they’re pregnant.

While praising the decision, President Joe Biden signaled Democrats will continue to campaign heavily on abortion ahead of the November elections. “It does not change the fact that the right for a woman to get the treatment she needs is imperiled if not impossible in many states,” Biden said in a statement.

    Thank you Supreme Court. Can you please let’s trump’s January sixth trial go forward. The people of the United States need to know.That the Republican Party’s Presidential Candidate is a convicted felon. And a convicted insurrectionist.

      One might think a ex president would stand up a defend themselves. Instead for running and hiding. And try to delay everything possible. So they could pardon themselves. Does the MAGA movement think Americans are going to buy into this crock of SH—

          It's not that Trump has a strategy at all.

          What Donald Trump does have is a criminal lifestyle.

          He never considers acting lawfully or in consideration of others.

          He's more like a 5 year old, not an adult.

Abortion is not on everyone's mind. The libs think this is all people think about. No it's not. It's a state's decision now. Get over it!

    Its a woman’s decision, not up to a state.

    How many of your medical decisions would you like made for you by California politicians?

      Myself included , had to appeal 3 decisions by Blue Shield before they approved my treatment.

      Medicare does not do this.

      Medicare is a Government program, No denial of care.

    People fail to realize that the tremendous drop in crime since the 80’s is due to Roe v Wade. Unwanted children turn into criminals.

      Excellent point.

      But without those unwanted children, a criminal factory, where would the privatized incarceration industry go?

      Misery and crime mean nothing more than huge profits for big business.

      Keep those little bastards coming!

                        Once again, a story about 2 people that ran a business and gave their heart and soul, becomes a political firefight.
                        Sad.
                        Enjoy your retirement.
