The Supreme Court largely appeared skeptical Wednesday morning that Texas was concerned only with women's health in passing new abortion provider regulations, in the biggest abortion-related case for the court to hear in nearly a decade.

The key question before the justices was whether Texas, and potentially other states, have unconstitutionally limited a woman's right to obtain an abortion by placing new facility and hospital admitting requirements on abortion providers that are prompting many to shutter. The decision could have a ripple effect far into the future on how far states can go in regulating the controversial procedure.
