Supreme Court strikes down Louisiana abortion restrictions
June 29, 2020
CWN Editor's Note: The US Supreme Court today struck down a Louisiana law that required abortionists to have hospital admitting privileges. Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the majority in the 5-4 decision, although he had voted to uphold a similar Texas law in an earlier case; he cited the court’s precedent. Justice Clarence Thomas was the only judge who explicitly rejected the court’s “ill-founded abortion jurisprudence.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
