SACRAMENTO – California Legislative Women’s Caucus Chair Senator Nancy Skinner (D-Berkeley) and Vice Chair Assemblymember Cecilia Aguiar-Curry (D-Winters) released the following statement today, praising the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to keep the abortion medication mifepristone legal and accessible.

“We commend the Supreme Court for staying the lower court rulings and not interfering with the medical decisions made by professionals at the FDA in their approval of mifepristone. The FDA’s experts approved mife two decades ago for nationwide use after determining that it is an extremely safe and effective medication for abortion and other life-saving purposes. Mife should remain legal and accessible, and we will continue to fight any court action that seeks to cut off access to this proven and safe medication.”
