Supreme Court Hears Oral Arguments on Louisiana Abortion Law

Clip: 03/04/2020 | 9m 15s | Video has closed captioning.

Supreme Court justices are weighing a Louisiana law that requires doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals. The court struck down a similar Texas law in 2016, but since then, President Donald Trump has appointed Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh to the court, and both had strong backing from anti-abortion groups.
