In today’s Quickie: Breaking SCOTUS update: Mifepristone remains FDA-approved

MIFEPRISTONE REMAINS FDA-APPROVED: Today, the Supreme Court unanimously ruled that a group of anti-abortion physicians does not have standing to challenge the FDA’s actions related to the approval of mifepristone. Mifepristone will remain on the market and accessible in states where abortion is legal.

ACTION FUND PRESIDENT ALEXIS MCGILL JOHNSON — “THIS IS NOT GOING TO STOP THE ATTACKS ON REPRODUCTIVE FREEDOM: Shortly after the Supreme Court’s decision on mifepristone dropped, Planned Parenthood Action Fund president and CEO Alexis McGill Johnson joined MSNBC to talk about what it really means for the fight for abortion access.

“The reality is here that this is not going to stop the attacks on medication abortion,” Alexis said. “This is not going to stop the attacks on reproductive freedom. There is a road map that is laid out even within this opinion… This is a case that might continue to yield efforts for the anti-abortion minority when we see it potentially go back to the district court and continue. Obviously we are still deeply concerned but also relieved for the patients right now who can have access to the abortion care that they want in the way that they want it.”


Alexis also reminded viewers that abortion isn’t done at the Supreme Court this term: “The fact that this court is considering whether or not Idaho has the right to allow patients to die because they refuse to allow abortion care in the state for patients who are desperately in need… This is a case that, essentially, they are fighting in court to let people die and they are fighting in a way that leaves no room for compassion, no concessions, no compromises. And they will frame it, I suspect, around issues of federalism. But this is really about whether or not you are able to get the life-saving care they need, and I think that is something that we need to pay very close attention to, especially given the devastating impact of abortion bans across this country.”
