The suspension will remain in effect till Wednesday midnight, the Supreme Court said in its ruling.
The temple of American law has been seized by the Biden administration in haste, asking it to act before restrictions on access to the pill, ordered by an appeals court, took effect Friday night on Saturday.
Last week, a federal judge Texas, seized on by anti-abortion activists, withdrew the marketing authorization of mifepristone, one of two pills used for medical abortion. He granted a delay of one week for his decision to take effect.
Seized by the federal government, an appeals court partially overturned the judge’s decision, allowing the abortion pill to be approved for the time being — but it changed access facilities provided by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for years. Approved in 2000.
His ruling specifically banned mifepristone from being sent by mail and returned to limited use to seven weeks of pregnancy instead of ten weeks. These restrictions were applicable from 01:00 pm on Saturday, but have now been suspended until Wednesday.
