tl;dr: SCOTUS is back on their bullshit. Sign up here to take action if you’ve had enough.

Okay – you’ve heard us talk about the Mifepristone case that SCOTUS is hearing, but if you’re still not 100% clear on what’s going on, here are five fast facts on the upcoming case.

  1. The 5th Circuit Court ruled that the FDA didn’t follow correct procedures in easing regulations for a pill approved over 20 years ago. Changes included allowing later pregnancy use and direct mailing to patients.
  2. The Biden administration and mifepristone’s manufacturer seek Supreme Court overturn of a lower-court decision that complicates access to the medication. 
  3. Mifepristone is a crucial part of a two-drug regimen in over half of U.S. abortions, and it is still available. 
  4. The Supreme Court will hear arguments on this case on March 26, reigniting the divisive issue of reproductive rights following 2022’s gutting of Roe v. Wade by the conservative majority.
  5. Mifepristone was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2000. A large body of research has shown the medication to be safe and effective.
  6. BONUS: We won’t let a Supreme Court, compromised by zealots in stolen seats, further erode American freedoms. We will be there on the 26th to put our bodies on the line to fight against these extremists. Are you with us?
