The United States Supreme Court has held that the two abortion regulations at issue in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt constitute an undue burden and are unconstitutional. The Court upheld the District Court’s determination that the laws create a substantial obstacle to women seeking an abortion while providing little to no medical benefit. If enforced, the regulations would have caused a dramatic drop in the number of clinics, longer waiting times, increased crowding, and increased driving distances.
