Meet one of the litigators who will be fighting for abortion rights at the U.S. Supreme Court
January 11, 2016
The Supreme Court has agreed to hear the biggest abortion case of this generation, a challenge to HB2, an anti-choice Texas law enacted in 2013. HB2 forces clinics to meet expensive and medically unnecessary standards, including turning clinics into “mini-hospitals” and requiring doctors to have admitting privileges at a local hospital.
David Brown, a staff attorney for the Center for Reproductive Rights, is part of the team fighting to end HB2 in what is the biggest abortion case since 1992. I had the opportunity to talk with Brown about the impact of this case and how the team is preparing for the historic legal battle ahead.
