LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Sunny Hostin, co-host of 'The View', expressed a renewed sense of confidence in the Supreme Court following its decision to overturn a federal ruling that restricted access to an abortion pill.

The Supreme Court voted unanimously, 9-0, to maintain access to the abortion pill mifepristone, overturning a lower court's decision that prohibited mailing the pill, even to states with no abortion restrictions following the overturning of Roe v Wade.

"It’s nice to hear good news about the Supreme Court for a change," remarked Joy Behar, reflecting the general sentiment of relief upon hearing the decision.

Hostin cautiously welcomed the news, acknowledging the persistent challenges to reproductive rights in various states.

"I think the states are still going to try and take them away. There are about 14 states where even this pill is not allowed to be used for abortion purposes, so we’re still kind of in the same situation when it comes to states' rights to decide a woman’s reproductive health rights," she said.

But the Supreme Court's decision had made her optimistic considering the fact that even judges she has criticized in the past, such as Brett Kavanaugh and Clarence Thomas, adhered to legal principles in this case.

"It does restore a little bit of my faith in the court because the legal standard is, do you have standing to bring a case? Can anybody bring a case in front of the Supreme Court? No," Hostin noted.

"You have to prove that you have injuries resulting from it and so you’ve got a group of doctors and a group of citizens and all of these people bring this challenge to the FDA and say, we don’t want this pill."

Ana Navarro's insight on Supreme Court's ruling

The celebratory mood was short-lived, as Ana Navarro observed that the court's ruling primarily addressed the procedural aspect of the case, rather than delving into its substantive merits.


Hostin pointed out that within the 25-page decision, there is acknowledgment that the ban on the abortion pill is not outright dismissed. She described this acknowledgment as "a little bit of a dog whistle" to Congress and governors, suggesting that any further efforts to impose such a ban would require legislative action, as the decision mentions "other avenues to object" to the ruling.

"If these had been plaintiffs that had standing and the issue had been in front of the Supreme Court, God only knows," Navarro remarked.

"I don’t trust the whole thing," Behar added, echoing a sentiment of skepticism towards the entirety of the situation.
