    More about Stephanie Toti: Toti’s practice at the Center for Reproductive Rights focuses on protecting reproductive rights and promoting reproductive justice through constitutional litigation. An experienced advocate, she has argued cases in state and federal courts throughout the United States, including Alaska, Kansas, Louisiana, Minnesota, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia. Stephanie served as lead counsel in Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt, which challenged key provisions of a Texas TRAP law that would have forced more than three-quarters of the state's abortion facilities to close. She successfully argued the case to the U.S. Supreme Court, which struck down key provisions of the law in its 5-3 ruling on June 27, 2016. She is currently partnering with the City of Baltimore, Maryland, to defend a first-in-the-nation ordinance regulating the deceptive practices of crisis pregnancy centers.
