The Supreme Court has agreed to review a case involving this medication, following conflicting rulings by District Judges in Texas and Washington state about what is required for it to be prescribed.

The case centers on the FDA's regulation of mifepristone, which was initially approved in 2000, requiring it to be prescribed in person over three visits. However, since 2016, the FDA has allowed telemedicine and mail delivery prescriptions.
