52% : Solicitor General Elizabeth Prelogar, the Biden administration's top Supreme Court lawyer, said the court should dismiss the case and make clear that anti-abortion doctors and organizations don't "come within 100 miles" of having standing.
51% : Addressing Ellsworth, Thomas said the law is "fairly broad, and it specifically covers drugs such as yours."Even if the court doesn't address the Comstock Act in its ruling, some abortion rights advocates fear that a future administration that favors abortion restrictions could invoke the law to roll back access to mifepristone.
43% : Health care providers have said that if mifepristone is no longer available or is too hard to obtain, they would switch to using only misoprostol, which is somewhat less effective in ending pregnancies.
33% : Comstock Act concerns: In arguments highly focused on technical legal issues, Alito and Thomas asked some of the few questions Tuesday on the substance of the case, including about sending mifepristone through the mail.
