In a historic ruling yesterday, The United States Supreme Court, threw out an abortion access law yielding a victory for abortion rights.

Justice Stephen Breyer's majority opinion read:

"There was no significant health-related problem that the new law helped to cure, We agree with the District Court that the surgical-center requirement, like the admitting-privileges requirement, provides few, if any, health benefits for women, poses a substantial obstacle to women seeking abortions, and constitutes an "undue burden" on their constitutional right to do so."
