Washington Gov. Jay Inslee stockpiles abortion pills in ‘resistance’ to potential second Trump presidency

In preparation for “The resistance to a new Trump administration,” Washington’s Democratic Governor Jay Inslee is stockpiling abortion pills. After the US Supreme Court ruled against a challenge to the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) regulatory approval process of the chemical abortion drug Mifepristone, leaders of the Democratic Party are preparing in case a new Trump administration rescinds the approval or uses the 1873 Comstock Act to criminalize mailing the drug across state lines. 

In an article titled, "The Resistance to a New Trump Administration Has Already Started," The New York Times reported, "The Democratic governor of Washington State, Jay Inslee, said he had secured a large enough supply of Mifepristone pills to preserve access for women in his state through a second Trump administration. The supply is locked away at a state warehouse."

According to the outlet, Inslee is "one of at least five Democratic governors who have established stockpiles of Mifepristone to guard against the possibility of any Trump administration using federal power to stop its interstate distribution. The others are the governors of California, Massachusetts, New York and Oregon."
