Diverse Stakeholders Implore Supreme Court to Preserve Abortion Pill Access

On Thursday, Oct. 12, a wide range of organizations filed 14 amicus curiae briefs supporting a Justice Department petition asking the United States Supreme Court to overturn a Fifth Circuit decision imposing nationwide limits on access to the abortion pill mifepristone. 

The opposition has until Nov. 9 to file response briefs in the case. If the justices take up the case, they could hear oral arguments early next year and issue a decision by late June 2024, which would likely factor into the fall elections.
