The Supreme Court's decision to take a Mississippi case that poses a direct challenge to Roe. v. Wade has raised the stakes for the Biden administration's newly launched review of restrictions on abortion pills, which could dramatically expand access to the procedure.

"A ruling for Mississippi, which is petitioning for the right to ban abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy, would allow states to implement restrictions farther-reaching than any seen in decades, abortion-rights advocates say. Texas, Idaho, Oklahoma and South Carolina moved this year to ban abortions after six weeks of pregnancy, with similar limits pending in several other Republican-led states."
