Supreme Court drops Oklahoma ‘abortion pill’ case

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday sidestepped what would have been its first abortion case since 2007, declining a case about overturned restrictions on the RU-486 abortion pill.
The dismissal means that last week’s Oklahoma Supreme Court ruling, which invalidated a 2011 state law restricting medical abortions, is final. The state supreme court said the law violated the Constitution by effectively banning abortion-inducing drugs.
In a one-line order on Monday, the Supreme Court dismissed the Oklahoma case, Cline v. Oklahoma Coalition for Reproductive Justice, as “improvidently granted.”
The Center for Reproductive Rights, the group that had challenged the law, said the Supreme Court’s action means women in Oklahoma will once again have access to drug-induced abortions and nonsurgical treatment for ectopic pregnancies — when an embryo implants outside the uterus — which are usually not viable.
