Read the Court Decision Invalidating F.D.A. Approval of Mifepristone
The FDA's approval of the abortion pill mifepristone has been invalidated by a preliminary ruling from a federal judge in Texas. This ruling is in conflict with another court's ruling, and is likely to be escalated to the Supreme Court.
On Friday, a federal judge in Texas made a preliminary ruling invalidating 23 years of approval by the Food and Drug Administration for the abortion pill mifepristone. The ruling clashes directly with a previous court decision in a legal dispute that could escalate all the way to the Supreme Court.
