The case involves a Louisiana law that requires abortionists to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of where they perform an abortion. The law was introduced in 2014 by Democratic State Representative Katrina Jackson and passed by overwhelmingly bipartisan majorities in both the Louisiana House and Senate. Oral arguments will be heard on March 4 of this year with a decision expected by the end of June or early July.
