Arizona Attorney General Kris Mayes joined a coalition of Attorney’s General last week that are urging the Supreme Court to overrule a lower court’s decision on abortion pill restrictions.
Mayes and 22 other states warned the Supreme Court in an amicus brief that restrictions on abortion pills would be damaging to reproductive health.
"The Fifth Circuit's decision to place unwarranted restrictions on mifepristone is not just misguided— it's hazardous," said Attorney General Mayes in a press release.
Although the decision is not in effect yet, the August ruling from a lower court in Louisiana would impact telemedicine prescriptions and mail shipments of the pill.
The U-S Food and Drug Administration and a mifepristone distributor have filed petitions to reverse the lower court’s decision. Mayes and the coalition wrote the amicus brief in support of these petitions.
Mifepristone remains available in Arizona in the meantime.
