The Libertarian Party (2012) platform notes that “the government should stay out of the matter and leave the matter to each person for scrupulous consideration.”  Abortion is a controversial topic among libertarians, and the Maryland-based organization Libertarians for Life is, in most cases, opposed to the legality of abortion. A Guttmacher Institute survey of abortion providers estimated that 17% of all abortions without hospitals, and just over a quarter of abortions before nine weeks of pregnancy in the United States in 2008, were related to early medical abortions.  Medical abortions were awarded to the CDC by 34 emergency lines (excluding Alabama, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Vermont, Wisconsin and Wyoming) and published in its annual abortion surveillance reports have increased annually since the FDA approval of Mifepristone (RU-486) on September 28, 2000 1.0% in 2000, 2.9% in 2001, 5.2% in 2002, 7.9% in 2003, 9.3% in 2004, 9.9% in 2005, 10.6% in 2006, 13.1% in 2007, 15.8% in 2008, 17.1% in 2009 (25.2% of pregnant people under 9 weeks).  In 2008, medical abortion accounted for 32% of abortions during the first trimester at Planned Parenthood clinics.  The Supreme Court ruled in June similar in June Medical Services, LLC v. Russo on June 29, 2020, in a 5-4 decision, that a Louisiana law, modeled on Texas law at the Center of Whole Woman`s Health, was unconstitutional.  Like Texas law, Louisiana law required certain measures for abortion clinics that, if implemented, would have closed five of the state`s six clinics. The Louisiana case was stayed until Whole Woman`s Health resulted and was retried on the basis of the Supreme Court decision. While the district court declared the law unconstitutional, the Fifth Circuit found that the burden of Louisiana law, contrary to Texas law, passed the tests described in Whole Woman`s Health, and therefore the law was in accordance with the Constitution. The Supreme Court ordered a stay of the law until further review and agreed to hear the case in its entirety in October 2019. It was the first abortion-related case negotiated by President Donald Trump`s elected officials, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.  The Supreme Court declared Louisiana`s law unconstitutional for the same reasons as the Texas law and reversed the Fifth Circuit.
