Contributing sentiments towards policy:

59% : A major medical journal retracted two papers from 2021 and 2022 that the plaintiffs cited in their case to the nation's high court, throwing into doubt any medical basis for their position, while anti-abortion groups, Republican officials from 25 states and more than 140 members of Congress have signed briefs with the Supreme Court to block mifepristone's availability.
58% : Alliance Defending Freedom, among the most influential conservative Christian legal advocacy groups in the US, also helped draft anti-abortion laws used to overturn Roe and has championed litigation and legislation targeting birth control and LGBT+ rights.
51% : Last year, the group supported more than 1,400 people, who travelled an average of 1,300 miles roundtrip - marking a 30 per cent increase since the Dobbs ruling and the wave of anti-abortion laws that followed.
51% : The group has allowed physicians in Democratic-led states with so-called "shield" laws for providers to prescribe and mail pills directly to patients in anti-abortion states.
51% : Such laws - adopted in Colorado, Massachusetts, New York, Washington and Vermont - protect abortion providers who mail pills to restricted states from inside their borders, allowing a breakthrough expansion of abortion care in anti-abortion states.
43% : A wave of state-level anti-abortion laws that followed the Supreme Court's 2022 decision to reverse the decades-long precedent established by Roe v Wade appeared to fuel an increase of "advance provision" prescriptions of medication abortion drugs across the country.
32% : Last year, in response to the group's lawsuit, US District Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk - a former right-wing activist lawyer who was appointed to the federal judiciary by Donald Trump - suspended the FDA's approval of mifepristone.
