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. Until then the drug will remain available as the court reviews a lower court ruling on the medication which accounts for more than half of abortions in the US. 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.
