IBNS-CMEDIA: The US Supreme Court has rejected a move to restrict access to abortion pill mifepristone.

The decision, which came two years after the court rescinded the nationwide guarantee to an abortion, was welcomed by pro-choice activists, reported BBC.

Mifepristone is one of two drugs used in America at present for medical abortion. It is one of the most common methods of terminating pregnancies in the country now.

The plaintiffs, known as the Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine, had argued that approval for the drug from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) should be withdrawn, reported BBC.
