On Tuesday, March 26, 80 protesters gathered in front of the federal courthouse building in Raleigh. The rally, Defend Medication Abortion, was in protest of the US Supreme Court hearing oral arguments about possibly restricting access to mifepristone and questioning the FDA’s regulatory authority.

Mife is the most widely used, safest, and most effective medicine used by women seeking an abortion. Last year over 1 million women in the United States had abortions and over 60% used mifepristone The rally was organized by the Triangle Interfaith Reproductive Justice Coalition, with the Community Church of Chapel Hill UU taking the lead. We are raising the voices of the faith community in support of bodily autonomy and a woman’s full access to reproductive healthcare.
