Supreme Court Preserves Access to Abortion Pill

The United States Supreme Court unanimously voted to preserve access to the abortion pill mifepristone on Thursday, marking the court’s first abortion decision since overturning Roe v. Wade in 2022.

A group of anti-abortion organizations and doctors sued the Food and Drug Administration (fda) in 2022, saying it should not have made mifepristone widely available because of safety concerns. The drug is used in more than 60 percent of U.S. abortions.

The ruling: The Supreme Court sided with the Biden administration and the manufacturer of mifepristone, overturning a lower court decision intended to make it more difficult to get the drug.

Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh said the plaintiffs lacked the legal right to sue the fda since the organization is “not requiring them to do or refrain from doing anything.” He added that “a plaintiff’s desire to make a drug less available for others does not establish standing to sue.”

Kavanaugh also argued that the federal court was “the wrong forum” to address these concerns. “The plaintiffs may present their concerns and objections to the president and fda in the regulatory process, or to Congress and the president in the legislative process,” the ruling stated.

What it means: The fda’s existing guidelines will remain, which allow women to obtain the pill up to 10 weeks into a pregnancy.

Murder? Even though Roe v. Wade was overturned, many people still argue that unborn babies are not legally living “persons” and abortion is the mother’s right. Despite bans in some states, there were more than a million abortions in the U.S. last year, and abortion pills remain widely available.

However, the Bible clearly says that the life of an unborn child is equal to that of an adult (Exodus 21:22-23). If someone caused an unborn child to die, God judged him the same as someone who had killed an adult. God says abortion is murder.
