United States: The Supreme Court will not rule against the use of the abortion-inducing pill

Publié le : 8 November 2013

 On Monday, 4 November 2013, the United States Supreme Court declared that it would not rule against the law in the State of Oklahoma restricting the use of the abortion-inducing pill. This announcement follows on from a decision taken by the Court itself last June when it decided "to investigate the case lodged by the State of Oklahoma (southern United States) against a local judicial decision" which sought to reject a law passed in Oklahoma restricting the use of the RU 486 abortion-inducing pill in this State. By finally refusing to re-examine the Oklahoma case, the Supreme Court "confirms the unconstitutional nature of the law" and allows the use of the abortion-inducing pill.
