1. Meds, Money And High Drama At The Supreme Court NPR 14:50

The Supreme Court will decide how to move forward after temporarily halting a lower court’s order which would have restricted access to the abortion medication mifepristone, used in more than half of U.S. abortions.

The issue arrives at the high court as it weathers yet another ethics controversy involving Justice Clarence Thomas. ProPublica reported that the justice has long failed to report lavish gifts from his friend Harlan Crow, a billionaire Republican mega-donor.

This episode: political correspondent Susan Davis, national political correspondent Mara Liasson, and legal affairs correspondent Tamara Keith.
