On Friday, the Supreme Court rejected Alabama’s attempt to ban dilation and extraction, the most common second-trimester abortion procedure. If allowed to go into effect, the law would have affected 99% of abortions performed after 15 weeks. In May, Alabama signed the nation’s most restrictive abortion ban into law, effectively banning the procedure except in cases where a pregnant person’s life is at serious risk. That law is currently being challenged in lower courts.
