Today, the U.S. Supreme Court unanimously ruled to throw out a case that threatened access to mifepristone, a safe and effective medication that has been used by millions of people in the United States for abortion and miscarriage care since its FDA approval over 20 years ago.

Statement from Wendy Davis:
"Let's be clear: mifepristone is a safe, effective medication essential for individuals making private medical decisions. The fact that this case made it to the Supreme Court in the first place is a travesty, and their decision should not be hailed as a dramatic victory. Instead, it is the bare minimum we should expect from our highest court on a baseless case that was a calculated attack on the right to a proven and safe method of abortion care. 

Anti-abortion extremists will no doubt continue their attacks on our right to bodily autonomy and the freedom to make private healthcare decisions. We are relieved today because medication abortion will continue to be available in states that allow access to it. But to be clear, because of Texas’ cruel total abortion ban, people in Texas will still have no legal access to medication abortion in our state. We will continue to fight back in Texas so we all have access to the health care we deserve, no matter where we live.
