The Supreme Court refused to disturb the law which restricts the availability of non surgical abortions. The court declined to inform about the reason behind this action.
It seems like the Republicans in Arkansas’s Legislature are trying to make it a complex task for women to get abortion.
FDA passed these non surgical abortion drugs in 2000. It can be easily utilized in the first seven weeks of pregnancy. Shortly after that researchers tried to create smaller dose that can be taken till the ninth week of pregnancy.
These medicines are relatively cheaper and safer option than the usual surgery. Generally, abortion clinics are not present in each and every state of the country. Therefore, these drugs immediately gained popularity among the pregnant women.
These medicines interfere in the performance of progesterone. Progesterone is endogenous asteroid which is essential for pregnancy. The women use it with a combination of another drug misoporstrol. The misoporstrol contracts the uterus and afterwards eject its contents. The FDA has not misporstrol for pregnant women.
Shortly after the launch of these drugs, a few states implemented laws to restrict the use of these pills.
However, the 9th U.S Circuit Court of Appeals stopped the authorities to impose more laws on this matter. The court states that Arizona law enforces unnecessary laws on the women’s right of abortion.
