Supreme Court blocks Louisiana abortion clinic law
apnews.com ^ | 02/07/2019 | AP

The Supreme Court is stopping Louisiana from enforcing new regulations on abortion clinics in a test of the conservative court’s views on abortion rights.

The justices say by a 5-4 vote that they will not allow the state to put into effect a law that requires abortion providers to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals.

Chief Justice John Roberts joined the court’s four liberals in putting a hold on the law, pending a full review of the case.

The four more conservative justices, including Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, would have allowed it to take effect. Kavanaugh wrote a dissent explaining his vote.

The law is very similar to a Texas measure the justices struck down three years ago. Roberts dissented in that case.

Roberts joined the baby butchers. Game over.

Thank you George W. Bush.

If RBG joins Hitler & Himmler, we might get a 5th justice.

Not overturned but can’t be enforced pending final ruling.

Kav and Gorsuch voted pro-life. Roberts joined the 4 Stalinists.

Aside from the debacle in the Mid-East, Roberts is the single worst decision by Dubya.

admitting privileges would only be needed if the abortionist cared about the life and health of the mother and baby
