What the June Medical Services U.S. Supreme Court Decision Means for Wisconsin?
On June 29, the U.S. Supreme Court (SCOTUS) ruled Louisiana’s attempt to block abortion access unconstitutional in June Medical Services LLC v. Russo. The Court affirmed its 2016 ruling in Whole Woman's Health where it struck down an identical “admitting privileges” law in Texas. In both cases, the Court saw these restrictions for what they are: medically unnecessary restrictions designed solely to block access to care.
Abortion Access Protection Act
Did you know that Wisconsin has a law on the books that would make abortion at any point in pregnancy a crime? If the Supreme Court's decision in Roe v. Wade were overturned, this outdated law from 1849 could be enforced, criminalizing doctors for providing health care.
