FILE - Bottles of the drug misoprostol sit on a table at the West Alabama Women's Center, March 15, 2022, in Tuscaloosa, Ala. Misoprostol induces uterus contractions that expel an embryo or fetus and other tissue. A federal judge in Texas will hear arguments Wednesday, March 15, 2023, in a high-stakes court case that could threaten access to abortion medication and blunt the authority of U.S. drug regulators. The lawsuit from Christian conservatives aimed at overturning the Food and Drug Administration’s approval of the abortion pill mifepristone. The drug, when used with a second pill, misoprostol, has become the most common method of abortion in the U.S. (AP Photo/Allen G. Breed, File)
