WASHINGTON, DC (AP) – The U.S. Supreme Court turned away pleas from pro life groups to make it easier for them to be outside abortion clinics. The justices are declining to wade back into the abortion debate just days after striking down a Louisiana law regulating abortion clinics. They said in a written order issued Thursday that they would not hear cases from Chicago and Harrisburg where pro life groups had challenged ordinances that restrict them outside clinics. As is usual, the justices did not comment in turning away the cases.
