Supreme Court to Hear Major Abortion Regulation Case From Louisiana


The U.S. Supreme Court announced it is adding an abortion case to its already busy election-year docket, agreeing to take up a Lousiana law that could leave the state with just one clinic. The justices will not hear arguments until sometime during the winter and a decision will not likely come until the end of June, with less than five months before the presidential elction to take place.

The highest court in the country in February indicated it would take a throough look at the case when it agreed to block the law that requires doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at a nearby hostpital. The Louisiana law is similar to a Texas law the Supreme Court struck down in 2016, when Justice Anthony Kennedy was on the bench and before President Donald Trump’s two high court picks, Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh had been seated.
