SCOTUS: Louisiana Restrictive Abortion Law Struck Down
The Supreme Court of the United States ("SCOTUS") ruled today by a 5-4 decision in June Medical Services v. Russo striking down a law requiring abortion providers to have the ability to admit patients at local hospitals. Supporters say the law promotes safety and continuity of care, but abortion-rights advocates say it is a medically unnecessary restriction that will force abortion clinics to shutter.
Abortion advocates were apprehensive the law would open the door for other states to pass similar laws and further restrict abortion access without fear of court intervention in opposition of Roe v. Wade decision that made abortion legal across the country.
