Chicago's bubble zone law goes to the US Supreme Court

Chicago's bubble zone law goes to the US Supreme Court
The challenge to the Chicago law creating a “bubble zone” around abortion clinics moves on to the United States Supreme Court with a June 7, 2019, docketing of a Petition for Writ of Certiorari in Veronica Price et al. v.
