Washington (AP) —The Supreme Court has ordered women to go directly to a clinic, hospital, or clinic to obtain an abortion drug during a COVID-19 pandemic.
Similar rules for other drugs were suspended during public health emergencies.
Eight days before President Donald Trump resigned, a judge on Tuesday appealed to the Trump administration to enforce long-standing rules on the availability of the abortion drug mifepristone.
The pill does not need to be taken in front of a medical professional.
The new administration may put the face-to-face requirements on hold after Joe Biden takes office.
The court split 6 to 3 and the liberal judge opposed it.
According to the Associated Press, the Food and Drug Administration has approved the use of mifepristone in combination with its second drug, misoprostol.
