SCOTUS dodges abortion fight in collective opinion

The Supreme Court on Tuesday avoided hearing a lawsuit about two Indiana abortion regulations, one of which prompted a lengthy attack on eugenic abortion from Justice Clarence Thomas.

The case in question was Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentuckyfirst brought before the court by the state of Indiana last October. It concerned two requirements of HEA 1337, which mandated that “fetal remains” be disposed of as one would other human remains (instead of medical waste), and prohibited abortions solely on the basis of the child’s sex, race, or disability status.
