Representative Maxwell Alejandro Frost (D-Fla.-10) and Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), along with Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) on Wednesday introduced bicameral legislation to establish an Office of Gun Violence Prevention in the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ). The Office of Gun Violence Prevention Act would bring together those most impacted by gun violence with leaders across federal agencies to advance policy, collect and report data, expand state and local outreach, and maximize existing programs and services related to preventing gun violence.

Tell The Courts: Protect Medication Abortion Now

The Supreme Court granted a request to temporarily block a decision that severely restricted the use of mifepristone for abortion, allowing the medication to remain available at least until end of day Wednesday, April 19th.

Today’s ruling is not the end of the line in the case: Now the courts must put an end to this baseless case – which is part of anti-abortion extremists’ plan to ban abortion nationwide.

It threatens access not only to abortion and miscarriage care, but also to a wide swath of critical and life-saving medications. No matter what happens next, we know this fight is far from over.

The ruling in Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine v. FDA blocking FDA approval of mifepristone is unconscionable. Mifepristone – approved 23 years ago and used effectively by millions of people for medication abortion – is perfectly safe. Anti-abortion extremists are attempting to use the courts to ban abortion nationwide, even in states that have legal protections for abortion access. Join the ACLU and people across the country in urging the courts to reverse this harmful decision and uphold the law.
