The U.S. Supreme Court is back in session, and has determined it will hear arguments in a case from Louisiana that could be a bellwether of how the Court will determine abortion cases moving forward.

The case, June Medical Services v. Gee, involves a Louisiana law that requires any doctor performing an abortion to have admitting privileges at a hospital nearby. The law is similar to a Texas law that was struck down (Whole Woman’s Health vs. Hellerstedt) by the Supreme Court three years ago. But both pro-life and pro-choice Americans are watching to see if the outcome will be different with two new justices, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.

To discuss the case, and its implications for the future of Roe vs. WadeSteven Aden, Chief Legal Officer at Americans United for Life, stopped by The Drew Mariani Show last week.

Aden explained what exactly the court will consider in hearing arguments for this case, saying, “The Supreme Court will decide this term whether the Louisiana law is the same, different enough from the Texas law, or whether it should overturn the Hellerstedt decision and go a  different way. Or even, conceivably, if the Supreme Court is ready, willing, and able to overturn Roe vs. Wade and return the question of abortion to the states.” ….
