US Supreme Court 'punted the can down the road' by delaying ruling on abortion pill

Description

The US Supreme Court is leaving women's access to a widely used abortion pill untouched until at least Friday, while the justices consider whether to allow restrictions on the drug mifepristone to take effect. The court is dealing with a new abortion controversy less than a year after its conservative majority overturned Roe v. Wade and allowed more than a dozen states to effectively ban abortion outright. For more, FRANCE 24 is joined by Eric Lisann, Lawyer, Legal Analyst and Former US Federal Prosecutor.

  • US Supreme court upholds temporary access to Mifepristone abortion pill

    The US Supreme Court has given itself until the end of the week to decide the fate of the abortion pill Mifepristone.

The justices are deciding whether to uphold a ban on the drug issued by a judge in Texas. FRANCE 24's Vedika Bahl and Antonia Kerrigan tell us more.
