The Supreme Court has turned down Wisconsin's bid to begin enforcing a state law requiring abortion providers to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals, while a legal fight over the law plays out in lower federal courts.
The Supreme Court has turned down Wisconsin’s bid to begin enforcing a state law requiring abortion providers to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals, while a legal fight over the law plays out in lower federal courts.
A federal judge is weighing a challenge to the law from Parent Parenthood and others which claim that it would amount to restricting access to abortions in Wisconsin because of the difficulties doctors would face in getting the hospital privileges.
U.S. District Judge William Conley is not expected to rule on the lawsuit before July, but he placed the law on hold last summer. The federal appeals court in Chicago upheld Conley’s action.
The justices did not comment Monday in declining to get involved in the case.
