Supreme Court Refuses to Review Mississippi’s Clinic Shutdown Law

The United States Supreme Court today declined to review Mississippi’s arbitrary and medically unwarranted law specifically designed to shutter the last abortion clinic in the state—ensuring the measure will remain blocked and the clinic open while the case proceeds in federal district court. In February 2015, Mississippi requested the Supreme Court review a July 2014 decision from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit which continued to preliminarily block the law—a measure which arbitrarily requires all physicians associated with a licensed abortion clinic to have admitting privileges at a local hospital for no medical reason.
