June Medical Services v. Gee, U.S. Supreme Court

Executive Summary

The National Health Law Programand our partners filed a joint amicus brief in the June Medical Services v. Gee Supreme Court case, arguing that the Louisiana law requiring physicians who provide abortion services to have hospital admitting privileges would effectively cut off access to care for people struggling to make ends meet.

The brief highlights that the law, combined with existing barriers such as the Hyde Amendment that bans federal health insurance programs from covering abortion, would put abortion entirely out of reach for people already marginalized by our health care system.

If the high court upholds the Louisiana law, it would have a devastating impact, with people of color, people with low incomes, and LGBTQ people bearing the brunt of the harm.
