The Supreme Court will be looking again into “June Medical Services v. Gee” a Lousiana based abortion case—which is nearly identical to a 2006 Texas case—that will ultimately decide whether or not a law which requires “[that] any doctor performing an abortion [needs] to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital” is constitutional and can remain in use or if it will be struck down. If this law were allowed to be put into use again, U.S. District Judge John deGravelles for NPR says “-only one clinic and one doctor in the state would be qualified to perform abortions. Even if that doctor worked seven days a week–the physician could not provide for the 10,000 women a year seeking abortions in the state.” With a new Justice–Brett Kavagnah–now on the Court, it is likely there will be some major decisions changed.
