Supreme Court upholds decision to allow abortion pills to be mailed


The Supreme Court refused to block a lower court’s order on abortion pills on Oct. 8.

The order would let people receive abortion pills by mail due to the pandemic. Prior to this, FDA rules required the pills be picked up in-person.

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists challenged the in-person requirement because the FDA had relaxed similar regulations on other drugs, such as opioids, due to the pandemic.

The lower court sided with the ACOG and the Trump administration’s appeal failed in a 6-2 Supreme Court vote.
