A major case is making its way through the courts right now. But the Highest Court in the land has jumped in.
Because the U.S. Supreme Court has shocked Americans with this spontaneous ruling.
Federal Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk shocked the world with his ruling that the FDA had violated many federal regulations and rules when it approved mifepristone – the abortion pill – for general use.
That approval was 23 years ago, and since then, the abortion pill has become more and more popular with concerns growing that it may ultimately be a dangerous drug.
The FDA themselves acknowledges that abortion pills can cause a wide variety of symptoms that include severe fevers, infections, hot flashes, blood clotting, and much more.
They even acknowledge that the abortion pill can lead to a botched abortion and in some cases, an ectopic pregnancy which can be life-threatening.
The FDA has reported more than 1,000 hospitalizations, 600 transfusions, 400 infections, and 100 ectopic pregnancies as a result of the abortion pill being used.
But the Democrats and the radical Left, who say they are pro-women, are ignoring these serious concerns regarding the abortion pill.
So when Judge Kacsmaryk ruled that the FDA approval must be rescinded, it set the Left ablaze with many high-profile Democrats outright calling for the Joe Biden administration to ignore the ruling.
The ruling, as expected, has been hit with many legal challenges. The Supreme Court as a result from a ruling from Justice Samuel Alito has already paused the ruling rescinding the FDA approval of the abortion pill.
The Supreme Court has now also decided to extend the pause on the ruling of the abortion pill’s approval status.
New: The Supreme Court extends the administrative stay in the abortion pill dispute. New restrictions remain on hold until 11:59 p.m. on Friday. Here's that order: https://t.co/xrbcoB3mrZ

It’s unclear where the U.S. Supreme Court will land on this case, but it’s becoming increasingly likely that they will have to settle the disputes between the lower courts.
Handing the case back down to the lower courts seems like an impossible option considering there’s a variety of lawsuits and rulings that are competing over the abortion pill.
If that’s the case, the U.S. Supreme Court could very well be poised to uphold Judge Kacsmaryk’s original ruling – or a major part of it.
In June of 2022, the Supreme Court’s Dobbs ruling effectively overturned Roe v. Wade and sent the issue of abortion back to the states.
With that jurisprudence in mind, the Supreme Court seems more likely than not to rule that states should take up-regulating the abortion pill for their citizens.
We will have to wait a little longer to get answers to these major questions, though, with the Supreme Court indicating that more time is needed to evaluate all the moving variables.
