The Supreme Court heard a case this week about mifepristone, a drug used in medication abortions. Anti-abortion plaintiffs are suing the Food & Drug Administration, hoping to restrict access to the drug. But, justices seem skeptical of their arguments, and limits on use of the drug could have long-reaching implications beyond abortion.
