The Supreme Court just struck down Louisiana’s anti-abortion law in the major abortion case, June Medical Services, LLC v. Russo (formerly June Medical Services, LLC v. Gee). The law is identical to a Texas law that was struck down by the Supreme Court just four years ago.
The Supreme Court’s ruling protects abortion access in Louisiana by allowing the states three clinics to remain open, but we must remain vigilant to ensure that access to abortion care is protected as a right everywhere.
That’s why we need Congress to pass the Women’s Health Protection Act (WHPA)—federal legislation that establishes a right to access abortion care by creating a safeguard against bans and medically unnecessary restrictions on abortion that apply to no similar medical care.
