Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller insists the law is necessary for patient safety, as conservatives in the state continue their attacks on Planned Parenthood.
The ruling issued Tuesday answers two questions asked by the Roberts Court and sends the legal challenge to Oklahoma’s medication abortion ban back to the high court.
On Thursday the Supreme Court signaled it was ready to consider more restrictions on abortion rights.
A protracted legal battle over regulating medication abortions in the state is one step closer to resolution.
An amended bill has clarified that women seeking medication abortions would only need to make three trips to a clinic, not the potential four trips bill opponents feared.
A new ban on “telemed” abortions could make accessing all medication abortions much more difficult for patients in Missouri.
The chances of U.S. Supreme Court intervention are so slim that something else has to be behind the petition for review.
“Something else could come in my vagina for a medical test that wouldn’t be that intrusive to me,” says a spokesperson for Indiana Right to Life.
In Indiana, abortion restrictions are coming by the dozen.
Arkansas Right to Life says to expect a telemed ban, 20 week ban and insurance exchange ban are all on the docket this year.
