Commets: 0

The move comes after the 5th US Circuit Court of Appeals restricted access to the drug, including prohibiting pregnant women from receiving it by mail. Advocates have warned that the restrictions could disproportionately harm pregnant women and people of color.

If the Supreme Court takes on the case, a decision is not expected until next year.
