Accountable.US research exposes Leo’s ties to biggest reproductive rights case before Supreme Court this term

WASHINGTON, D.C. – As the Supreme Court prepares to consider the legality of the abortion pill mifepristone in FDA v. Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine, new reporting on conservative kingpin Leonard Leo’s ties to the case continues to make waves.

MSNBC this weekend spotlighted Leo’s efforts to move some of his $1.6 billion financial windfall to Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine (AHM), an organization at the center of the abortion pill case. The segment detailed Leo’s attempt to move funds through a complex string of dark money transfers.

Leonard Leo’s decades-long campaign to undermine constitutional protections for abortion care and overturn Roe clearly wasn’t enough. Now, Leo’s key groups are funding an all-hands-on-deck effort to cut access to the popular abortion pill, threatening access to reproductive care even in states where abortion is legal."

“Leo continues to leverage his shady nonprofit network to force a radical and wildly unpopular anti-abortion agenda on everyday Americans. As Leo continues his work to erode reproductive freedom, it’s more important than ever to shine a light on his extreme efforts.”

The segment also highlighted Leo’s professional and financial connections to Matthew Kacsmaryk, the U.S. District judge in Northern Texas who first ruled against the FDA’s approval of mifepristone. Previous reporting revealed Kacsmaryk’s heavy involvement in Leo’s Federalist Society and his employment at a firm which paid Leo’s for-profit consultancy over $100,000.

Leo continues his work to abolish abortion rights at every level — and isn’t afraid to use his billion-dollar network to do it. Learn more about Leo, his dark money network, and his dangerous agenda at
