Supreme Court Preserves Access to Abortion Pill Mifepristone

The Supreme Court preserves access to the abortion pill mifepristone while the appeals play out. The case goes back to the 5th Circuit, where the FDA will pursue a full appeal of Kacsmaryk’s preliminary injunction. The agency and the anti-abortion groups will both have a chance to file briefs, and the case is scheduled to be argued before a three-judge panel on May 17. That appeal process could last months. The losing party could petition for rehearing with all judges of the 5th Circuit, known as en banc rehearing, and ultimately petition the Supreme Court once again. A final resolution could be months or years away.
