The Supreme Court of the United States has unanimously upheld access to mifepristone. Mifepristone has long been used safely and effectively in medication abortions around the world.

As a result, the use of mifepristone remains legal in the states that have not banned abortion, write Naomi Cahn of the University of Virginia and Sonia Suter of George Washington University. As of June 2024, medication abortion accounts for more than 60% of abortions in the U.S. The ruling – and medical abortions – face further challenges in US courts, and the subject remains likely to be a key issue in November’s presidential election.

And as the Uefa European Football Championship for men kicks off today, pitting the continent’s top national sides against each other, who would be a referee?
