Supreme Court preserves access to widely used abortion medication mifepristone

MifestristoneTwo years after erasing the constitutional right to an abortion, the Supreme Court went the other direction Thursday and tossed out a challenge to the widely used abortion drug mifepristone that would have curbed access to the drug and jeopardized the independence of the Food and Drug Administration.

The unanimous court said the anti-abortion doctors who challenged the FDA’s loosening of rules for how mifepristone can be prescribed and dispensed lacked a legitimate basis to bring their suit.

The challengers’ “sincere legal, moral, ideological and policy objections” to mifepristone don't give them standing to sue, Justice Brett Kavanaugh wrote in the majority opinion.

Instead, he said, the anti-abortion doctors can raise objections through the FDA’s regulatory process, or to Congress. And they can express their views through he political and electoral processes.
