The Supreme Court will consider an abortion case this term after it announced on Friday that it will hear a challenge to Louisiana's abortion law.
Louisiana's Unsafe Abortion Protection Act requires abortionists to have admitting privileges at a local hospital, defined as within 30 miles of the abortion clinic; when then-Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) signed the bill into law in 2014, it was promptly challenged in court.
"Abortion activists are more than willing to lower the bar on women's health in order to expand abortion, but stricter clinic regulations are in the best interest of women," Jeanne Mancini, president of March for Life, stated on Friday.
Mancini also noted the recent case of deceased South Bend abortionist Ulrich Klopfer, whose family discovered the remains of over 2,200 unborn children at his home in Illinois.
