Biden Praises Supreme Court for Upholding FDA Approval of Abortion Pill

President Biden hailed the Supreme Court's decision to dismiss a challenge to the FDA's approval of the abortion pill, mifepristone, as a victory for reproductive rights. The Court's ruling affirmed that the plaintiffs lacked standing to pursue the challenge, thus allowing mifepristone to continue being prescribed online, in person, and via mail.

Biden underscored his dedication to protecting reproductive rights, especially in light of recent challenges posed by the 2022 Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health ruling and subsequent state-level abortion restrictions. He pointed out that since the purported overturning of Roe v. Wade two years ago, many Republican-led states have enacted severe abortion bans, some without exceptions for rape or incest. This has led to situations where women are denied emergency care and forced to travel long distances to access reproductive healthcare.

The president also highlighted the threats faced by healthcare providers, including potential imprisonment, for offering medical services they are trained to provide. Biden emphasized that contraception and fertility treatments like IVF are also under attack.

In conclusion, Biden reaffirmed his support for a woman's right to make personal healthcare decisions and vowed to stand with the majority of Americans who support these rights. He and Vice President Harris intend to fight for women in every state to receive the necessary healthcare, and he pledged to urge Congress to restore the protections of Roe v. Wade through federal legislation.
