Abortion Pill Maker Moves to Challenge Mississippi Trigger Law

Generic mifepristone maker GenBioPro seeks to challenge a Mississippi anti-abortion law set into motion by the US Supreme Court’s reversal of Roe v. Wade, claiming the new state of affairs is keeping its product off local shelves.

Mississippi’s trigger law bans the majority of abortions within the state. That includes abortions relying on pills approved by the Food and Drug Administration like mifepristone, which is used to end pregnancies up to 10 weeks.
