Merrick Garland Says States Can’t Ban Abortion Pills

Attorney General Merrick Garland said, in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, “that states cannot ban mifepristone, a medication that is used to bring about an abortion, based on disagreement with the federal government on its safety and efficacy,” Axios reports.

According to the Washington Post, Garland also signaled the Justice Department “is preparing for legal battles on a host of related issues — from women traveling to states where the procedures are legal, to accessing pills that can induce abortions.”
