Supreme Court puts hold on abortion pill restriction

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito has placed a hold on a lower court ruling that restricts access to the abortion drug mifepristone until Wednesday night. Alito also instructed that any responses be filed by April 18 at noon.

Friday’s hold was in response to a formal request earlier in the day from the Justice Department to block a federal appeals court decision that limits access to the abortion drug mifepristone.

Portions of a Texas district court’s order that limits the drug would have otherwise taken effect April 15, but Alito’s order put it on pause.
