Here is a link to a LifeNews story on the Seventh Circuit’s decision in Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin, Inc. v. Schimel. The court–by a 2-1 vote–invalidated Wisconsin’s law requiring abortionists to have admitting privileges at local hospitals. The US Supreme Court recently agreed to hear a similar case involving a Texas statute.
The Seventh Circuit’s opinion is notable for a couple of features. The majority opinion was authored by Judge Richard Posner and his effort here is another example of the “doubtful omniscience of appellate courts.” The most noteworthy feature of this case though is the excellent dissenting opinion written by Judge Daniel Manion.
