The new badges of slavery are things like this… forcing you to make an “in-person” visit in order to obtain medication. That’s stealing your time. Call it a “time-tax”. Call it unconstitutional badges or incidents of slavery.

In the latest addition to the Supreme Court’s coronavirus docket, the justices will have to decide whether to preserve a district court’s order that makes it easier for patients to access medical abortions during the pandemic. The district court blocked the Trump administration from enforcing federal regulations that require patients to make an in-person visit to a medical provider in order to obtain a pill that is used to induce abortions. The administration filed an emergency request asking the Supreme Court to reinstate the in-person requirement, and on Tuesday, physicians’ groups filed a brief opposing the request. Amy Howe has all the details on the case in a story for SCOTUSblog (that was first published at Howe on the Court).
