Greenville Women's Clinic v. Douglas E. Bryant
West's Federal Supplement 2000; 66(F. Supp. 2d): 691-745
Court Decision: The United States District Court, D. South Carolina, Greenville Division, 5 February 1999 [date of decision], ruled that a state regulation of abortion clinics was so burdensome as to be unconstitutional and issued an injunction preventing its enforcement. The twenty-seven pages of regulations applied only to abortion clinics performing five or more first trimester abortions per month and not to those performing less. The excessively detailed requirements on clinic licensing were in effect an undue burden on a woman's right to an abortion and thus violated both the Due Process and the Equal Protection clauses of the U. S. Constitution.
