After the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit in New Orleans ruled that the abortion pill mifepristone will still remain on the market, but with restrictions, the Department of Justice (DOJ) said he will ask the Supreme Court for a emergency order to suspend any action.
“The Department of Justice strongly disagrees with the Fifth Circuit’s decision in Elliance for Hippocratic Medicine v. FDA to deny in part our stay request pending appeal,” Attorney General Merrick Garland said in a press release.
And he added that “we will seek emergency help from the Supreme Court to uphold the FDA’s scientific judgment and protect Americans’ access to safe and effective reproductive care.”
Added to Garland’s statements are those made this Thursday by the White House press secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, at a press conference from Dublin during a visit by President Joe Biden “we will continue to fight in courtWe believe the law is on our side and we will prevail.”
