The Supreme Court on Monday struck down Louisiana abortion restrictions which would have required abortion doctors to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of their clinic in a major win for abortion proponents.
The court decided in a 5-4 ruling that the law is unconstitutional, as it places an "undue burden on women seeking abortions." The law would have resulted in Louisiana having, at least temporarily, only one abortion clinic.
The decision marks the first major abortion ruling since Trump's two nominees, Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh, joined the high court.
Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the court's four liberal justices.
