Akron v. Akron Center for Reproductive Health struck down Ohio abortion law with certain provisions about age of women eligible and about the stage of the pregnancy. The dissenting opinion rejecting the emphasis on pregnancy stage saying that the "undue burden of proof" should applied "without reference to the particular 'stage' of pregnancy involved" (White and Rehnquist).
