Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt: Freeing Women from TRAP Regulations
Casetext (June 28, 2016): Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt: Freeing Women from TRAP Regulations, by Cynthia Soohoo:
On Monday, the Supreme Court issued its first major abortion case in 15 years. Justice Breyer’s majority decision in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt provides much needed clarification of the undue burden standard the Court applies in abortion cases and deals a serious, and perhaps fatal, blow to TRAP laws, which have increasingly been used by the anti-choice movement to restrict women’s access to abortion.
