- The United States Supreme Court Tuesday formally rejected an appeal from Wisconsin which sought to put restrictions doctors working at abortion clinics.
The Justices on Tuesday refused to hear appeals from both Wisconsin and Mississippi.
They involved laws that would have required doctors who perform abortions at clinics to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals.
The orders follow Monday's decision in which the court struck down a similar provision in Texas.
Federal appeals courts in Chicago and New Orleans earlier ruled against the states.
Mississippi's law would have closed the lone abortion clinic in the state, in Jackson.
