In Mazurek v. Armstrong, 520 U.S. 968 (1997), the U.S. Supreme Court held that it is constitutional to prohibit non-physicians from doing abortions. This decision was based on logic, and did not find it appropriate to consider whether other medical professionals could an abortion as safely as a physician, or how much prices for abortions may increase due to the physician-only rule.
