250+ Democratic members of US Congress urge Texas court to reverse mifepristone ruling
A group of more than 250 Democratic Congress members signed an amicus brief urging the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals to reverse its ruling to limit access to the abortion pill mifepristone, which is currently paused as it goes through the appeals process. In their brief, the lawmakers argued that Congress granted the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authority to review and approve drugs and “did not invite federal courts to substitute their judgment for the expert conclusions of FDA’s scientists”.
