17-935 8th Cir. TBD TBD TBD TBD TBD

Issue: Whether the undue burden test established in Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt and Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania v. Casey entitles a court to preliminarily enjoin a state abortion law—which mandates a “contracted physician” with hospital admitting privileges that effectively bans medication abortion, offers no discernible medical benefit, and leaves only one remaining abortion provider hundreds of miles away from significant population centers—without making a concrete estimate of the number of women who would be prevented or postponed in having an abortion.
