US Supreme Court decides that Louisiana law restricting abortions is unconstituational

The United States Supreme Court decided 5-4 that the Louisiana law that was passed in 2014 and restricted the access to abortions is unconstitutional. The law required any doctor offering abortion services to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles. Two doctors and one clinic that sued against it had argued that only one doctor at one single clinic would be able to provide abortion services for almost 10,000 women in the state.
