(Worthy News) - The Center for Reproductive Rights on Wednesday asked the Supreme Court to throw out a Louisiana abortion restriction they say is identical to a law the justices struck down almost three years ago.
The Center for Reproductive Rights has requested for the justices to strike the law without taking it up for oral arguments, given that the case is so similar to Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt. In that decision, the Supreme Court ruled that obligating doctors who provide abortions also to have admitting privileges to local hospitals was unconstitutional because it got in the way of women having access to abortion.
If the law in Louisiana, which imposes the same requirements on doctors, is allowed to stand, then two of the three remaining clinics that provide abortion in the state are expected to close. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More...) ]
