AG Nessel on Supreme Court Ruling Temporarily Maintaining Access to Mifepristone

LANSING – Tonight, the United States Supreme Court ruled to maintain the current availability of Mifepristone nationally, issuing a stay on a lower courts’ ruling until the 5th Circuit has ruled. In response, Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel issued the following statement:

“First things first: abortion remains legal and available in the state of Michigan. This ruling may feel like a victory, and it’s certainly not a defeat, but let’s be clear eyed about what transpired. Tonight, was a night where woman across this country didn’t lose access to a proven, effective, and safe prescription medication that has been relied upon for twenty years and is currently used in over half of all abortions. This ruling means Mifepristone remains FDA approved without the many restrictions imposed by the 5th Circuit.

While this fight is still far from over, I remain steadfast in my commitment to protect reproductive freedom for women all across our great state.”
