NARAL Pro-Choice America Responds to Supreme Court’s Granting of Request for Stay in Medication Abortion Case
Washington, DC — Today, the U.S. Supreme Court granted the Department of Justice’s request for a stay in Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine v. FDA, blocking lower courts’ dangerous rulings that would have severely restricted access to mifepristone.
NARAL Pro-Choice America President Mini Timmaraju released the following statement in response:
“Mifepristone will remain available – for now. We cannot overstate how crucial it is that people still have access to this safe, effective medicine. The fight, however, is far from over. Once again, anti-abortion extremists will use the courts to push their deeply unpopular agenda and once again, we will organize the tens of millions of people who believe in safe, legal abortion to fight back.”
For over 50 years, NARAL Pro-Choice America has fought to protect and advance reproductive freedom at the federal and state levels—including access to abortion care, birth control, pregnancy and post-partum care, and paid family leave—for everybody. NARAL is powered by its 4 million members from every state and congressional district in the country, representing the 8 in 10 Americans who support legal abortion.
