Supreme Court Passes On Indiana Abortion Cases

The abortion debate is finding its way back into the courts, but the Supreme Court is taking a pass – for now.

On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court chose not to take action on two appeals concerning restrictive abortion laws in Indiana.

One law would require fetal remains to be buried or cremated, while the other would require an ultrasound at least 18 hours before an abortion. Both were signed into law in 2016 by then-governor Mike Pence.

Recently, Alabama and other states have passed restrictive abortion laws with the goal of revisiting Roe v. Wade with a conservative-majority Supreme Court.
