Contributing sentiments towards policy:

62% : A federal appeals court in New Orleans is hearing arguments in the blockbuster abortion pill case where anti-abortion activists are asking the courts to pull the main drug used in medication abortions off the market.
61% : The challengers say the threat of anti-abortion doctors having to be implicated in those abortion-related emergencies has only increased since the FDA made the drug easier to obtain.
41% : The case is the most substantial legal fight over abortion since Roe v. Wade was reversed by the Supreme Court last summer.
36% : The arguments put forward by challengers - individual doctors and medical associations that are opposed to abortion - were embraced wholeheartedly by Kacsmaryk, another Trump nominee.
35% : The pill's defenders note that mifepristone is used for miscarriage treatment, and argue that, even in states where abortion is mostly illegal, the impact of a ruling that pulled the drug from the market would be felt, because of health-of-the-mother exemptions and other exceptions to those bans.
33% : Ho, in particular, has described abortion in inflammatory terms in judicial opinions in the past.
33% : Some in the anti-abortion movement see the Reconstruction-era law as a backdoor avenue for a de facto federal ban on abortion.
20% : The lawsuit puts in jeopardy access nationwide to medication abortion - the most common method of abortion in the United States - including in states where abortion remains legal.
