SCOTUS could decide future of abortion


The Supreme Court will take up a case on abortion rights for the first time in nearly a decade.

The case will have major implications on the practice of abortion across the country, as the court will weigh in on whether a Texas law creates a substantial obstacle to women seeking an abortion.

Texas passed one of the strictest abortion laws in the country in 2013 that calls for physicians who practice abortions to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital. In addition, abortion clinics have to meet strict standards set for ambulatory surgical centers.
