State at­tor­neys gen­er­al sue FDA over abor­tion pill ac­cess re­stric­tions

A dozen De­mo­c­rat at­tor­neys gen­er­al are su­ing the FDA in fed­er­al court in the East­ern Dis­trict of Wash­ing­ton to re­move all re­stric­tions on mifepri­s­tone, a pill used in com­bi­na­tion with an­oth­er med­i­cine to end ear­ly preg­nan­cies.

The suit comes as a Trump-ap­point­ed Texas fed­er­al judge is ex­pect­ed to soon de­cide on whether the pill should be pulled from the mar­ket. Mifepri­s­tone is cur­rent­ly used in more than half of all US abor­tions, ac­cord­ing to the Guttmach­er In­sti­tute. De­mo­c­rat Sen­a­tors have urged US At­tor­ney Gen­er­al Mer­rick Gar­land to quick­ly pre­pare an ap­peal to the de­ci­sion.
