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’ decision to temporarily extend the stay in the abortion pill case seeking to block the FDA’s approval of mifepristone:
“Today’s decision from the US Supreme Court to extend the stay in the dangerous case attempting to ban mifepristone nationwide is an important step that will temporarily protect access to safe and essential health care for millions of Americans for another two days.
What I want to make clear for Arizonans is that medication abortion, including mifepristone, remains legal in Arizona thanks to U.S. district judge Thomas Rice’s ruling in Washington state and the tireless advocacy of our Attorney General Kris Mayes. We are continuing to offer and provide medication abortion, using mifepristone as part of a two-drug regimen, at our health centers and we are not concerned with our supply of the medication across the state.”
