And? Those "burdens" don't exist in the abstract.
SCOTUS has held that having a diverse student population at a public university is a legitimate goal, and the particular admission scheme at issue in Fisher case was found to be an actual, reasonable means of furthering that goal and thus evaluated in that context.
I haven't read the abortion case, but my understand (just based on headlines, basically, so somebody can correct me if I'm mistaken) is that the Court that Texas' purported justification of medical safety bore bore little actual, reasonable connection to the restrictions at issue and thus evaluated those restrictions in that context.
