This week, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a ruling striking down abortion clinic regulations in Texas.

The law required clinics to be like Ambulatory Surgical Centers, and said clinic doctors must have admitting privileges at a local hospital.

But, the court ruled the law unconstitutionally limits a woman`s right to have an abortion.

It's the most significant decision from the Supreme Court on abortion in two decades.

And the ruling could ultimately effect policies in our state.

Steve Mulroy, a Constitutional Law Professor at the University of Memphis, stopped by to talk about the ruling.
