Attorney General Josh Stein Statement on SCOTUS Mifepristone Case

For Immediate Release:
Tuesday, March 26, 2024

Nazneen Ahmed (919) 716-0060

(RALEIGH) Attorney General Josh Stein today released the following statement after the Supreme Court of the United States heard oral arguments in a case challenging the FDA’s regulations governing access to the medication abortion drug mifepristone.

“Restricting access to a safe, effective medication isn’t about health – it’s about controlling women, and it’s wrong and unlawful. Decisions about reproductive care are personal and should be made by women and their doctors. Ever since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, too many politicians are stripping women of their reproductive freedoms. I will keep fighting to protect women’s reproductive care.”

Attorney General Stein previously filed a friend-of-the-court brief in the Supreme Court case urging the court to protect medication abortion access.
