Supreme Court Dispatch: The Latest Threat to Abortion Access
Abortion access is yet again under attack. Yesterday, the Supreme Court heard arguments in June Medical Services LLC v. Russo, a case that threatens to chip away at the constitutional right to a safe and legal abortion. The Court will decide whether or not a Louisiana law that requires abortion providers to have the ability to admit patients to a nearby hospital is constitutional. If allowed to go forward, that requirement would decimate access to abortion and open up the floodgates for similar laws in other states. On this week’s episode, two lawyers from the ACLU’s Reproductive Freedom Project, Brigitte Amiri and Andy Beck, join us from DC to share what they heard during yesterday’s oral arguments.
