SCOTUS Set to Hear Louisiana Abortion Case [VIDEO]
Congressman Mike Johnson talks with our news affiliates 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about a case set to come before the Supreme Court, a case that Johnson himself previously argued in a lower court.
Background on the case from abc.com:
"Four years after striking down a Texas law it said created an "undue burden" on abortion access, the Supreme Court is poised to take up a similar challenge.
June Medical Services v. Russo (previously v. Gee) is a challenge from Louisiana abortion providers to a 2014 state law that requires abortion providers to have admitting privileges with a nearby hospital. Hospital admitting privileges are an agreement between a doctor and a hospital that allows a patient to go that hospital if they need urgent care."
Johnson tells KEEL listeners that he argued the case in district court four years ago, prior to his election to the united States House of Representatives.
