Breaking News: The Implementation of Whole Woman's Health Begins

Today the US Supreme Court let stand two lower court orders enjoining implementation of restrictive (if not impossible) abortion provider requirements that would have placed an undue burden on both women seeking abortions as well as their providers.  Both Mississippi and Wisconsin laws would have required that providers have admitting privileges at hospitals within 30 miles of the abortion clinic.  The Mississippi law, if implemented, would have resulted in women having to go out of state for an abortion as the only clinic left in-state would have been required to close.
