Our Statement on the Supreme Court’s Ruling in FDA v. Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine

Statement from Sanctuary CEO Hon. Judy Kluger on the Supreme Court Ruling Regarding Mifepristone:

“Sanctuary for Families applauds the Supreme Court’s unanimous decision to deny standing to the radically anti-choice Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine in their challenge to the availability of mifepristone. Even the Court’s most conservative justices agreed that the plaintiffs’ desire to restrict access to medication abortion does not qualify them to challenge the drug’s availability.

This decision is a relief, but it also underscores the anti-choice movement’s persistent efforts to control women’s bodies—a pernicious form of gender-based violence that disproportionately harms survivors of intimate partner violence. Efforts to limit access to reproductive healthcare perpetuate cycles of abuse and control, denying survivors the essential care they need.

Sanctuary for Families, having joined a coalition of organizations in submitting an amicus brief to highlight these critical issues, remains steadfast in our commitment to advocating for survivors’ access to critical reproductive healthcare. We will continue to fight for the rights and well-being of all survivors, ensuring they have the freedom to make decisions about their bodies and futures without fear or coercion.”
