Supreme Court set to hear biggest abortion case in a decade


Recommended Posts

2584640Washington Examiner:

The Supreme Court is poised Wednesday morning to hear the biggest abortion case in nearly a decade, as activists on both sides of the issue seize the opportunity to passionately argue over new, sweeping state regulations on the controversial procedure.


In the case Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt, the justices will consider whether Texas is within its constitutional rights to require abortion providers to meet higher facility standards and get hospital privileges or whether the state's 2013 law goes too far in abridging women's access to abortions.


The court's decision could have a bearing on dozens of similar laws that Republican-led states have passed in recent years, although the recent death of conservative Justice Antonin Scalia has improved the prospects for an outcome more favorable to abortion-rights supporters.Scissors-32x32.png
