Supreme Court strikes down Louisiana abortion restrictions (Washington Post)

Catholic Culture Monday, 29 June 2020 ()
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.”
