Watch Live: Pro-Life, Pro-Abortion Advocates Face-Off Outside SCOTUS Ahead of Louisiana Case

Advocates from both the pro-life and pro-abortion movements are gathering outside the Supreme Court in Washington, DC, ahead of Wednesday’s opening arguments in a landmark abortion case.

In June Medical Services LLC v. Russo, the Court will consider the case of Louisiana’s 2014 “Unsafe Abortion Protection Act” — legislation that required abortionists to have admitting privileges to a hospital within 30 miles from their abortion clinic in case a woman needed emergency treatment as a result of an abortion. Opponents of the law say it would effectively eliminate all but one abortion provider, dramatically impacting abortion access in the state.

This is the first major abortion case to be heard by the Court since the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy in 2018.
