SCOTUS strikes down LA abortion restriction

The Supreme Court provided a victory for abortion rights activists yesterday, striking down a Louisiana law that would have left the state with only one abortion clinic. Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. joined the court’s liberals in the 5-to-4 decision. It was a blow to conservatives who had hoped for a dramatic change in the court’s abortion jurisprudence in the first such case heard since President Trump’s two conservative appointees joined the bench.
