PHOENIX – Brittany Fonteno, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood Arizona, released the following statement today in response to the Supreme Court of the United States’ ruling in the abortion pill case seeking to block the FDA’s approval of mifepristone:
“Today, the Supreme Court made the necessary decision to extend the stay in the dangerous case attempting to ban access to mifepristone nationwide. This is an important step that will temporarily assuage the fears of millions of Americans seeking safe and essential healthcare.
In Arizona, medication abortion, including mifepristone, will continue to remain legal and available in Arizona. Planned Parenthood Arizona will continue to offer a full range of lawful sexual and reproductive health care, including medication abortion using mifepristone as part of a two-drug regimen."
