Pro-life proponents of the law, which is sponsored by Democratic Louisiana State Senator Katrina Jackson, argue this requirement protects women with emergency medical care in case of abortion complications. Pro-abortion advocates argue the law is simply a way to make it more difficult for women seeking abortions to obtain them from providers.
This is the first abortion case since new Supreme Court Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch, both nominated by President Trump, were confirmed by the Senate.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer attended a Planned Parenthood rally outside of the Court this afternoon and openly threatened Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. Over what? It's unclear.

Dear @SenSchumer:— Mike Davis (@mrddmia) March 4, 2020
Are you really threatening 2 Supreme Court justices before they rule on a case?
How will they “pay the price”?
What does this even mean?
If the Republican Senate leader did this = Scandal.
But, of course, most of the media will give Schumer a pass on this. https://t.co/68sE03WPyf
It remains unclear what exactly will happen to make the justices "pay the price" but this is definitely something only a Democrat could get away with.
Keep in mind Planned Parenthood receives more than $500 million in taxpayer funding each year.
