SC mife decision June 2024
Supreme Court Rejects Far Right Effort to Restrict Access to Medication Abortions and Mifepristone

"The far-right effort to block access to mifepristone is not about women’s safety—it is about controlling women’s choices and curtailing their freedoms.

Today, we celebrate this decision, but we must remain vigilant against such attacks.”
--IWPR President Dr. Jamila K. Taylor
