Over the years, the courts, the U.S. Congress, and state legislatures have developed legal doctrine and policies to guarantee and regulate women’s access to abortion. This eventually led to the creation of the “undue burden test.” In a short essay, discuss what the undue due test is and the court case that first introduced it. Additionally, discuss the impact this test has had on how states have regulated abortions.
