Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., called on President Biden’s administration to ignore a potential court order banning the FDA from distributing an abortion drug.
Wyden called for Biden to upend the rule of law in a Friday speech on the Senate floor. Federal Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk is hearing a case in which claimants say the FDA wrongly approved the abortion drug mifepristone. The case may result in a nationwide ban on the drug, pending a Supreme Court decision.
“In the coming days a lawless Trump-appointed judge is expected to ban access to abortion medication nationwide,” Wyden wrote on Twitter. “I’m calling on the FDA to protect the safety of every woman in America by keeping the drug on the market no matter the ruling.”
Wyden’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Fox News Digital.
