President Joe Biden's administration has indicated it will aim to prevent states from banning a pill used for medical abortion in light of the Supreme Court's ruling.
Axar.az informs that the pill, mifepristone, in combination with a second drug called misoprostol, induces an abortion up to 10 weeks into a pregnancy and is only available in the US through a certified doctor's prescription.
The Biden administration could argue in court, the US Food and Drug Administration's approval of mifepristone pre-empts state restrictions, meaning federal authority would outweigh any state action.
States that ban abortion could in any case face difficulties enforcing restrictions on pregnancy termination via medication because women may still be able to obtain the pills online or in other states.
