Mifepristone Ruling Injunction

(Olympia, WA) -- A ban on the abortion drug mifepristone has been temporarily stopped in 16 states and the District of Columbia. The Washington and Oregon Attorneys General joined with the other states to fight a ruling by a Texas federal judge that banned sale of the drug. The FDA is also expected to appeal the judge's ruling. The state's argue the drug was approved by the FDA in 2000 and has been used safely by millions of Americans. The states are also suing the FDA to remove what they say are overly restrictive regulations on the drug. That lawsuit is still pending.
