Senator Warren’s Statement on Texas District Court Judge Threatening Access to Medication Abortion Nationwide

Washington, D.C. – United States Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) released the following statement on the decision by the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas to stay the FDA’s decades-old approval of mifepristone, in a move that threatens access to abortion for millions of women nationwide.

“Because of today’s lawless ruling by an extremist Republican judge, women across the country could lose access to a safe and legal medication they’ve relied on for decades. Attorney General Garland should quickly appeal this decision in order to preserve access to medication abortion, and I urge the Biden administration to use every legal and regulatory tool in its power to keep this drug available.”
