Left-wing lawyer and #Resistance hero Neal Katyal, who once represented al Qaeda terrorists, said on Monday that Republican states could soon ban over-the-counter pain medication such as Tylenol.

"It wouldn't shock me if the legislature of Alabama started being opposed to Tylenol or something like that," Katyal told MSNBC in comments about abortion pill access in the wake of the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Katyal, who warned that the High Court is "really out of step with the mainstream of American society," is best known as the face of the "al Qaeda 7," a controversial group of lawyers who represented al Qaeda terrorists before joining the Obama Justice Department.

The former acting solicitor general also faced criticism in 2020 when he appeared before the Supreme Court to defend his corporate clients, Nestlé and Cargill, against charges of abetting child slavery in Africa.

Katyal has in recent years championed several left-wing legal causes, leading challenges against former president Donald Trump's travel ban and border separation policy.
