The nation's largest abortion provider Planned Parenthood published a tweet Wednesday assuring that mifepristone is still available despite the recent ruling, informing people that the drug “remains FDA-approved.” In a follow-up tweet, the corporation provided a link to a website that helps people find where to obtain an abortion. 

Alexis McGill Johnson, Planned Parenthood’s president and CEO, also responded to the ruling in a Wednesday tweet, writing that the decision shows the availability of mifepristone is at a “serious risk.”

“The Supreme Court should take this case and reject this clearly baseless and political attempt to interfere with our ability to get health care,” Johnson wrote.
