To the Editor, re 'A Sharp Turn for the Supreme Court on Abortion' (letters, April 20):
I am a rheumatologist caring for a patient whose lupus nephritis is flaring. Her creatinine is rising as her platelet count falls, and she has failed to improve with pulse methylprednisolone and intravenous cyclophosphamide. I am contemplating using rituximab. I would like to refer this case to the United States Supreme Court for its guidance.

I missed this first time around, but am pleased to recirculate now.
