Implications for women of Louisiana’s law requiring abortion providers to have hospital admitting privileges
In 2014, Louisiana passed a law requiring abortion providers to have hospital admitting privileges. This law is temporarily on hold while a court case challenging it continues. We aimed to describe the population who would be affected if the law goes into effect and how closures of between three and five Louisiana abortion facilities would affect the distance Louisiana women would need to travel for an abortion.
