DelBene Statement on Continued Access to Medication Abortion

Today, Congresswoman Suzan DelBene (WA-01) issued the following statement after the Supreme Court dismissed a challenge to the medication abortion drug mifepristone:

“This case was never about science. It was yet another effort by anti-abortion extremists – with the encouragement of House Republicans and the former president – to chip away at reproductive health care. Today’s decision is a win for Americans in all states who would have seen their rights infringed on if the Supreme Court had taken away access to this safe, effective medication.

“It’s clear that anti-abortion extremists were never going to stop at overturning Roe vs Wade. I will always stand up for reproductive rights and be relentless in my efforts to enshrine the protections of Roe into law once and for all.”
