Contributing sentiments towards policy:

63% : Meanwhile, anti-abortion groups rejoiced at the Texas ruling, calling the FDA "reckless" and repeating claims against mifepristone's safety.
60% : Kacsmaryk, who has long held anti-abortion views, said the FDA "omitted any evaluation of the psychological effects of the drug or an evaluation of the long-term medical consequences of the drug."
42% : "Abortion is still legal and accessible here in California and we won't stand by as fundamental freedoms are stripped away."
41% : The ruling, which does not go into effect for seven days and is certain to be quickly appealed, could effectively prohibit use of the medication nationwide, including in California and other states where abortion is legal.
35% : Civil rights groups campaigned against Kacsmaryk's nomination, warning that he was an "anti-LGBT activist and culture warrior" who opposed same-sex marriage and abortion rights.
34% :Some supporters of abortion rights have called on the Biden administration and the FDA to ignore Kacsmaryk's ruling, citing the judge's outspoken opposition to abortion and the significant data compiled since mifepristone's approval that show it is safe.
31% : "The judge's decision in Texas today blocking the FDA's approval of mifepristone is an outrage and exposes the weaponization of our judicial system to further restrict abortion nationwide," Alexis McGill Johnson, president and chief executive of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, said in a statement.
18% : As a judge, Kacsmaryk has blocked Biden's plan to reverse Trump's "Remain in Mexico" immigration policy, a ruling that forced tens of thousands of migrants seeking asylum to wait in Mexico for U.S. immigration court hearings.
