Statement on Supreme Court’s Decision to Lift 5th Circuit Restrictions
The Supreme Court was correct to lift the outlandish restrictions placed on mifepristone access by the Fifth Circuit. Now, mifepristone will be available without interruption as this case moves forward. The case against mifepristone is groundless, and was fabricated as part of the anti-abortion movement’s efforts to end legal abortion everywhere in this country. Mifepristone is part of a safe and effective regimen for abortion care, and has been safely used by millions since it was approved over 20 years ago.
Young people have the right to pregnancy options and that includes the right to whichever medication abortion regimen that is best for them. We aren’t going to let abortion access disappear in this country. Through clinic access and through self-managed abortion, medication abortion is and will continue to be available for those who need it.
