Issue: Whether the Supreme Court should stay, pending appeal, a nationwide injunction by a federal district court in Maryland that prevents the FDA from enforcing requirements that certain medical abortion drugs be distributed only under the supervision of a certified healthcare provider in a hospital, clinic or medical office after a patient signs a form acknowledging that she has been counseled about the drug’s risks, on the grounds that the requirements pose an undue burden on abortion access under Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania v. Casey during the COVID-19 pandemic.
