Democratic-led US states sue to challenge federal restrictions on abortion pill

Twelve Democratic-led states have filed a lawsuit against the federal government to contest specific limits on the sale of the abortion drug mifepristone, claiming that these restrictions are unfounded.

The lawsuit, led by Washington and Oregon and filed Thursday in Washington federal court against the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, comes as a separate lawsuit by anti-abortion activists seeks to end access to the drug altogether.
