    Texas Lawmen and the Lawless Court
    Adam J. MacLeod in Public Discourse,
    July 7, 2016 

    On June 27, 2016, in a 5-3 decision, the United States Supreme Court struck down several provisions of a Texas abortion statute in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt The Texas law under consideration involved regulation of abortion facilities and requirements for admitting privileges for doctors performing abortions.  The majority of the Court held that the law imposed an “undue burden” on a woman’s constitutional “right” to obtain an abortion and found that neither the admitting-privileges nor surgical-center requirement “offers medical benefits sufficient to justify the burdens upon access that each imposes and constitutes an undue burden on abortion access” and thus they violate the Constitution.  This article provides an analysis of that decision.
