As SCOTUS Hears Mifepristone Case, Pennsylvania Democrats Slams Trump’s Efforts to Ban Abortion Nationwide

As the Supreme Court prepares to hear arguments in a case that could ban medication abortion across the country and severely limit the access to critical reproductive care for millions of women, Pennsylvania Democratic Party Chair Senator Sharif Street released the following statement:

“Today’s Supreme Court hearing is a stark reminder that Donald Trump and his MAGA allies are using every avenue possible to ban abortion nationwide and devastate PA women’s reproductive freedom. This case could strip away access to medication abortion everywhere in this country, including Pennsylvania which would be the biggest step toward their extreme goal since Trump overturned Roe v. Wade. Pennsylvanians know that reproductive rights are on the ballot in November, and the only way to protect PA women’s freedoms is to send President Biden and Vice President Harris back to the White House.”

While Trump and MAGA Republicans are working to ban abortion access nationwide, President Biden and Vice President Harris will protect a woman’s right to choose:

  • Calling on Congress to codify the protections of Roe into law, restoring rights women relied on for nearly 50 years.
  • Standing by the FDA’s evidence-based approval of mifepristone — and the Biden-Harris administration will continue to defend the FDA’s independent, expert authority to review, approve, and regulate a wide range of prescription drugs.
  • Fighting to ensure access to emergency medical care.
  • Strengthening patient privacy and access to contraception.
  • Supporting a woman’s right to travel for medical care.
  • Promising to veto a national abortion ban.
