Federal Appeals Court Ignores Supreme Court Precedent

The U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals refuses to reconsider its rogue decision on a Louisiana law aimed at closing abortion clinics.

01.18.19 (PRESS RELEASE) - Today, the Fifth Circuit refused to reconsider its decision from last year upholding a Louisiana law that requires physicians performing abortions to have admitting privileges at a local hospital.
