"The United States Supreme Court in a 5-3 decision handed down Monday struck down a Texas law that would have severely limited the number of abortion clinics in the state. A law professor from the University of Kansas, Lumen “Lou” Mulligan explains the provisions of the law that were in question.

...

Mulligan explained the point of Constitutional law that the court was addressing.

'Unnecessary regulations, which create substantial obstacles impose an undue burden on women’s constitutional right to an abortion,' Mulligan said. 'The Supreme Court found in light of those statistics, that this was an undue burden.'”
