Future of Abortion Pill May Hinge on West Virginia Lawsuit
Filed on Jan. 23, GenBioPro v. Sorsaia challenges the constitutionality of the state’s abortion ban. The plaintiff claims that by overriding the approval of the drug by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA), and preventing its sale in West Virginia, the ban violates the Supremacy and Dormant Commerce Clauses of the Constitution, respectively. The case is among the latest in a wave of lawsuits over abortion. Statewide bans and restrictions erupted last year after the Supreme Court overruled Roe v. Wade, which had protected access to abortions for nearly 50 years. The issue, long one of the more divisive in our political discourse, has intensified as the ability of Americans to access abortion now largely depends on where they live.
