Supreme Court justices heard arguments in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt, one of the most significant abortion rights cases to come before the Court in years. At issue is a Texas law that regulates facilities that perform abortions. If a lower court ruling is upheld, the law would effectively force the closure of all but 6 of the 40 facilities in the state where women can get abortions. You can learn more about the case here.
