US Supreme Court Lets Abortion Access Law Stand

Monday April 16

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The US Supreme Court rejected on Monday a constitutional challenge to a federal law aimed at stopping violent protests that have blocked access to abortion clinics.

Without any comment, the justices let stand a ruling by a US appeals court that upheld the constitutionality of the federal law, the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act.

The law, adopted by Congress in 1994, prohibited the blocking of access to clinics and the injuring or intimidation of abortion-seeking women or clinic staff.

The study, entitled The Impact of Legalized Abortion on Crime, was published in the May 7 edition of the Quarterly Journal of Economics, which is edited by the Economics Department of Harvard University and calls itself "the oldest professional journal of economics in the English language."

"I would say that we should not be thinking about policy implications from this study, because we should still be talking about whether this story is accurate," said Ed Szymkowiak, national director of the American Life League's "STOPP International."
