A panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit has been asked to consider the merits of a district court’s ruling that blocked several abortion restrictions in Indiana as the U.S. Supreme Court considers the issue of whether all pre-viability prohibitions on elective abortions are unconstitutional.

On Wednesday, the three-judge panel, including Judges Joel Flaum, Frank Easterbrook, and Diane Wood, heard oral arguments in Whole Woman’s Health Alliance v. Rokita, after U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana Judge Sarah Evans Barker in August blocked restrictions including a prohibition on qualified advance-practice clinicians providing medical abortion care; a ban on providing second-trimester abortion care outside of a hospital or ambulatory surgery center; physical plant requirements for abortion clinics; counseling laws; a ban on using telemedicine to provide medication abortion care; and requirements that require patients to seek multiple trips to a clinic.
