Supreme Court Partially Upholds Indiana Abortion Law06:17


The Supreme Court issued a split ruling on an Indiana abortion statute. The law makes it illegal for abortion providers to dispose of fetal remains with other surgical tissue and instead mandates that fetal remains be separately buried or cremated. Although a lower court had struck down that provision, the Supreme Court upheld it by a 7-to-2 vote. Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson talks with NPR legal affairs correspondent Nina Totenberg (@NinaTotenberg).
