Supreme Court Keeps Abortion Pill For Now

The abortion rights community and its allies in the Biden administration secured a striking victory from the conservative Supreme Court with an order Friday night that stopped restrictions on medication abortion drugs from taking effect.

The Supreme Court’s brief, unsigned order came in an emergency dispute over lower court rulings that would have curtailed access to the drug, mifepristone. At the request of the Justice Department and a mifepristone manufacter, the high court placed a hold – known as a stay – on the lower court rulings while the appeals process plays out.

Only Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito publicly indicated their dissent from the Supreme Court’s move.
