Supreme Court Takes Up Abortion Access

Tomorrow, the Supreme Court will hear the most significant challenge to abortion rights in a generation. The case is about a Texas law that curtails women’s access to abortion clinics. The law requires clinic doctors to have hospital admitting privileges and the clinics themselves to be certified as ambulatory surgical centers. These provisions are so expensive that at least 30 abortion clinics in Texas have closed so far. We look at how this law compares to abortion laws and restrictions around the country.
