In this current crisis, we need the courts to do their job and take all necessary steps to protect patients, providers, and protect our reproductive rights! This is our opportunity to make our voices heard and help the courts understand the far-reaching consequences of their decision. Americans demand the ability to make decisions about their own lives, bodies, and futures — without political interference, and support of this petition demonstrates that wish.
Mifepristone is crucial to public health. It is a medication that is not only used to safely and effectively assist abortion, but is commonly used in cases where a pregnancy ends in a miscarriage and heavily relied on where abortion is medically necessary to save a person’s life. More than 5 million people in the U.S. have used mifepristone since the FDA approved it over two decades ago. That’s right, over 20 years ago. This means that millions of people will be negatively impacted by this decision if it were to go the wrong way.
This impacts all of us, even those of us who may not be in need of abortion and reproductive health care services. The consequences of limited access to abortion are especially harsh for people who live in states with high maternal and infant mortality rates. The result of total abortion bans will mean mothers will be forced to give birth in environments with failing health care systems and that are unsafe for birthing people altogether. We are in a health care state of emergency. We need all hands on deck so please join this fight and share the People’s Brief right now! Every signature counts.
Together, with reproductive rights partners like Planned Parenthood and the ACLU, activists, lawyers, providers and MomsRising allies, we are filing this amicus brief. Will you join us?

Thank you for all you do.
