Medically unnecessary laws regulating abortion have been exposed as dishonest attempts to close clinics. Will the Supreme Court still give them legal cover In 2016, Louisiana had 6 abortion clinics. By 2017, there were 3! Soon, there may be only one clinic left to serve nearly 1 million women of reproductive age.  This critical abortion case  centers on a Louisiana law that requires doctors who provide abortions to have “admitting privileges” at a hospital within 30 miles of their clinic -- a sly attempt to wipe out abortion access in the state. Beyond the specific legal questions that surround this case, at the heart of June Medical Services v. Russo is a referendum on unnecessary abortion laws that purport to help women but actually harm them. If Louisiana’s law and others like it prevail, for many women across the country, the constitutional right to abortion will exist in name only.”
