US Abortion Pills Law: US Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito temporarily halted lower court abortion decisions. This decision was to prevent the abortion pill mifepristone from being used. It is then time for the US Supreme Court to decide what to do with the lower court rulings.
The legal battle over the drug began when a federal judge in Texas ordered a nationwide ban on mifepristone. In which it was said that the drug was being used to kill the child before it was born.
Decision to ban Mifepristone drug
Federal judges in Texas and Washington, USA, on March 7, gave a decision to ban Mifepristone drug. Mifepristone is a commonly used drug for abortion. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of America has approved the use of Mifepristone tablets. In the US, measures are being considered to stop delivery of the pill to states that have banned abortion.
While White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said the stakes of the fight to ban the drug cannot be high in the face of ongoing attacks on women’s health.
Drug Are lobbying to ban
Danko Laboratories, the company that manufactures the Mifepristone drug, had also asked some questions to the Supreme Court in a separate file to ban the decisions of the lower courts. And anti-abortion activists are lobbying to ban the drug.
They claim that it is unsafe and should be completely controlled or banned. They say that the use of the drug can cause health risks. This increases blood flow and also increases the risk of infection.
