Day 820

1/ The Supreme Court temporarily extended access to the abortion pill mifepristone until at least Friday, freezing a lower court order that had invalidated the FDA’s approval of mifepristone more than two decades ago. In an order signed by Justice Samuel Alito, the court said it will act by Friday night. The Supreme Court is considering emergency appeals from the Biden administration and the brand-name manufacturer of the pill about whether to block a decision by U.S. District Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk, who revoked the FDA’s approval of mifepristone altogether. A federal appeals court later modified Kacsmaryk’s ruling so that mifepristone would remain available while the case continues, but blocked the drug from being mailed or dispensed as a generic and required patients to make three in-person visits with a doctor.
