Skip to comments.All eyes on Roberts ahead of Supreme Court's abortion ruling
Posted on 06/22/2020 4:39:57 AM PDT by kevcol
The court in Hellerstedt ruled 5-3 to strike down a Texas law that required abortion-performing doctors to be authorized to admit patients at a nearby hospital. Roberts dissented on technical grounds from the majority, which said the Texas law was unconstitutional because its burden on a womans right to abortion outweighed any medical benefit.
While Robertss vote was not decisive in the Texas dispute, he may hold the tie-breaking vote in the Louisiana case. What complicates matters is the fact that the Texas law that the court struck down in Hellerstedt is nearly identical to the Louisiana law now under review.

Wish that decision was Trump getting rid of the fool Roberts. What a total loss for our side. Gifts of the Bushes that just keep on giving.
We may as well realize that gay Roberts is lost to conservatives.
If the FBI ever gets reformed there should be a division of blackmail investigation dedicated to politicians and judges.
He said one of the reasons for the virus becoming weaker could be that it has mutated in response to social distancing measures.
Holding evidence which it used for blackmail is historically the way the FBI has preserved its power. This goes all the way back to the agency’s corrupt founding.
He will fold like a cheap suit unfortunately.
Actually the court is a liberal 5-4 court with Roberts and Gorshech
Roberts is bought and paid for, courtesy of George W.
Compromised, duplicitous snake.
That smarmy smile is puke-inducing.
No question he’s pro-Abort, he cares nothing about the Law as written.
Planned Parenthood is clearly involved in genocide. Can’t fix stupid... the blacks want their abortion clinics on every corner.
Not mine. Cant stand the sight of him. I dont know how he can look at himself in the mirror. Hes a lost cause, a failed Bush legacy.
Don't you mean 6-3 - if you are including Gorsuch? Because the three would be Kavanaugh, Alito, and Thomas. The six would be Roberts, Gorsuch, RBG, Breyer, Sotomayor, and Kagan.
I am 100% pro life but let me be the devils advocate- if something goes wrong you call an ambulance and then the patient gets admitted. Why should the abortion doctor have admitting privileges?
Wouldnt surprise me if he gave a small win for our side on this one with the four more conservative justices saying theyd go even further. He wont join anything that significantly limits Roe, but in order to keep up appearances, he cant have every major decision this term go to the left. Of course there are still other major cases he could pretend to swing to the right on so maybe he will join the baby killers.
Count him out as a total lib. He likes the cocktail circuit on the beltway as well as being a favorite of the fake news.
Hey John Roberts
Hope you have a long slow burn on your way to hell there a hole

Agree. We’re being played. It’s obvious, too, that Gorsuch and Kavanaugh will take turns betraying us.
Because Feminazis aren’t really about protecting women and girls from botched abortions. They’d rather Planned Parenthood and other abortion clinics continue covering up and trying to control bleeders in house.
