The U.S. Supreme Court is stepping back into the high-profile fight over abortion, agreeing Friday to review a Texas law that could force more than three-quarters of the state's abortion clinics to shut down. “This is really going to be a defining moment for the Supreme Court in terms of whether or not
we're going to continue to have the strong core protections that we've been seeing," said Nancy Northup of the Centre for Reproductive Rights. Since the law was passed, the number of clinics providing abortion services in the state dropped to 19 from 42. That number could fall to ten if the Supreme Court upholds the law.
Opponents say its passage had nothing to do with protecting women's health. A federal court trial judge declared the law invalid, ruling that it would not advance the state's interest in promoting women's health. Women's groups say, courts would be forbidden to consider whether an abortion law actually would
promote women's health in deciding whether it imposed an undue burden. The justices will hear the case early next year, with a decision.
Do you think abortion should be restricted through rules? Is it possible to implement these rules strictly?
