Washington (CNN)Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the liberal justices on the Supreme Court on Monday to block a controversial Louisiana abortion law that critics said would have closed nearly every clinic in the state.
The 5-4 ruling is a win for supporters of abortion rights who argued that the law was not medically necessary and amounted to a veiled attempt to restrict abortion. The law barred doctors from performing the procedure unless they had admitting privileges at a nearby hospital. The majority opinion was penned by Justice Stephen Breyer, who wrote that the majority "consequently hold that the Louisiana statute is unconstitutional." Breyer added later: "The evidence also shows that opposition to abortion played a significant role in some hospitals' decisions to deny admitting privileges." The ruling continues a trend of Roberts siding with liberals in major cases. He previously has upheld the program allowing undocumented immigrants who came into the US as children to remain and sided with opinion that extended anti-discrimination protections to LGBTQ workers.

I wish Roberts had been aborted. Would have been a life I'd have been overjoyed to have NOT protected.
Grinning GW Bush is the gift that keeps on giving. A RINO might be worse than a Democrat. You can COUNT on a Democrat to be evil.
This explains the reason that America is quickly being destroyed. God has simply had it with us. We will be a footnoe in history.
and the media still calls Roberts a conservative , pathetic.
Liberals on Supreme Court to block controversial Louisiana abortion law
When is the last time he decided anything in a remotely conservative way?
What will happen to Roberts when Ginsburg leaves the court and his vote will no longer matter?
Gee what a good pelosi catholic
Yeah pretty much. We have a very liberal Supreme Court, still.
This guy bends and twists and makes shit up in any way he can, so he can vote Liberal, again and again and again.
He suffers from TDS.
I surely expect by the end of this day, for pappy Francis to excommunicate those Catholics sitting on the Supreme Court that voted to kill the unborn!!!!!
He'll simply go all Souter on us, and proclaim that he has 'grown', and continue to side with the liberal wing.
Gorsuch and/or Kavanaugh will step-up to the sell-out plate (like they already have) and continue the Establishment's work to sell-out the country and its values.
Roberts is digging his grave in hell because the GOD of Heaven will put his butt in the Lake of Fire for having anything to do with murdering unborn children.
Jesus , who in their right mind would let someone cut and suction thier private parts knowing if yi6u start to bleed to death the dr. has to call around to find someone willing to take you!. .Abortion is wrong because it is supported by stupid people. Not to mention what God will do to these drs. later.
My six year old grandson explained how he and his friends play freeze tag to win at school. You see, they have two teams and two kids on his team are “spies” and they pretend they are on the other side.
If a six year old can figure out the strategy, why can’t we adults?
Wait, there is a Catholic Pope?
He is a liberal.
