South Carolina Republican says to ignore FDA abortion pill ruling

Rep. Nancy Mace (R-S.C.) suggested that the Biden administration should ignore a federal judge’s decision last week to block the sale of an abortion pill.

“It’s not up to us to decide as legislators or even, you know, as the court system whether this is the right drug to use or not,” Mace told CNN’s Kaitlan Collins on Monday. “I agree with ignoring it at this point… this thing should just be thrown out quite frankly.”

On Friday evening, Texas federal judge Matthew Kacsmaryk ruled to suspend the FDA’s approval of mifepristone, a drug that can be used in tandem with another to induce an abortion. Though it won’t take effect for a week, the decision virtually bans the sale of the pills across the country.
