Rep. Sara Jacobs’ Statement on U.S. Supreme Court’s Stay of Federal Court Ruling on Mifepristone

Following the U.S. Supreme Court’s stay of the federal court ruling on mifepristone, ensuring the medication will remain available during the appeals process, Congresswoman Sara Jacobs (CA-51) released the following statement:

“For over 20 years, mifepristone has been safe, effective, and on the market – and that remains true after today’s Supreme Court ruling. But the fight doesn’t stop here as the merits of the case are considered in the Fifth Circuit. Extremist Republicans and far-right judges have their eyes set on a national abortion ban, and they won’t stop until they achieve that dystopian dream. As one of the few women of reproductive age in Congress, I will stay vigilant and keep fighting until abortion isn’t only legal, but affordable, accessible, stigma-free, and de-politicized for all.”
