Abortion pill access could still face challenges after Supreme Court decision

Three states plan to pursue a case in federal district court to make the pills harder to obtain. Reproductive rights lawyers also anticipate efforts on behalf of anti-abortion activists or legislators to revive a 151-year-old federal law that might prohibit sending abortion pills through the mail. Other abortion access advocates predict that a second Trump administration would lead to similar restrictions.

The “trend of pushing back against women’s health and reproductive care is not going to stop just because of this case,” said Clara Spera, senior counsel at the National Women’s Law Center.
