The U.S. Supreme Court was this weekend in battle against the abortion pill Mifepristone, which has been in use since 2000.
This repeal was approved by Texas Judge Matthew Kaczmaryk, but immediately Washington Judge Thomas O. Rice has ordered otherwise.
The conflict comes a year after the U.S. Supreme Court accepted nationwide access to abortion, with Mifepristone, the most widely used abortion method in the United States.
The justice had set restrictions on the use of the drug, while reviewing the decision of the ultra-conservative Texas judge, who banned the drug.
The decision made in the Court came at midnight when the ruling fell in favor of the drug’s use.
The U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (FDA) approved without sufficient medical evidence 23 years ago the use of the drug, according to the ultraconservative group.
But the FDA has generated scientific studies that approve the drug as safe, and that it has no more serious contraindications than other widely used drugs.
According to the FDA, 5.2 million women have used it in that time since 2000.
