Eviscerating Access to Abortion Care Under Roe v. Wade

Document Type


Publication Date



The United States Supreme Court is poised to eviscerate access to abortion care. On March 4, 2020, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in June Medical Services v. Gee. In June Medical Services, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a Louisiana law requiring abortion providers to have admitting privileges at local hospitals. Four years ago in Whole Women’s Health v. Hellerstedt, the Supreme Court struck down a Texas law with precisely the same requirement because the Court recognized that admitting privileges laws serve no health benefits yet impose substantial obstacles to accessing abortion care.
