BREAKING NEWS: USA – The US Supreme Court struck down Act 620 of the state of Louisiana on 29 June 2020, but upheld another reactionary decision

Post date:



The US Supreme Court struck down Louisiana’s Act 620 on 29 June. The law would have required any doctor who provides abortions to hold “active admitting privileges” at a hospital within 30 miles of the location where the abortion takes place, in case the person having the abortion needed emergency hospital care. These “privileges” are in the gift of hospitals and can be denied with or without good reason. There has been great rejoicing across the USA. Many abortion rights supporters could not imagine winning this case and had awaited the decision with great gloom.
