Title: John Roberts joins liberal justices as Supreme Court blocks Louisiana abortion clinic law

WASHINGTON — A divided Supreme Court stopped Louisiana from enforcing new regulations on abortion clinics in a test of the conservative court’s views on abortion rights.

The justices said by a 5-4 vote late Thursday 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 G. Roberts Jr. joined the court’s four liberals in putting a hold on the law, pending a full review of the case.

President Trump’s two Supreme Court appointees, Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett M. Kavanaugh, were among the four conservative members of the court who would have allowed the law to take effect.

Kavanaugh wrote a dissenting opinion in which he said the court’s action was premature because the state had made clear it would allow abortion providers an additional 45 days to obtain admitting privileges before it started enforcing the law.

If the doctors succeed, they can continue performing abortions, he said. If they fail, they could return to court, Kavanaugh said.

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

But the composition of the court has changed since then, with Kavanaugh replacing Justice Anthony Kennedy, who voted to strike down the Texas law. Trump had pledged during the campaign to appoint “pro-life” justices, and abortion opponents are hoping the more conservative bench will be more open to upholding abortion restrictions.

Louisiana abortion providers and a district judge who initially heard the case said one or maybe two of the state’s three abortion clinics would have to close under the new law. There would be at most two doctors who could meet its requirements, they said.

But the federal appeals court in New Orleans rejected those claims, doubting that any clinics would have to close and saying the doctors had not tried hard enough to establish relationships with local hospitals.

In January, the full appeals court voted 9-6 not to get involved in the case, setting up the Supreme Court appeal.

The law had been scheduled to take effect Monday, but Justice Samuel Alito delayed the effective date at least through Thursday to give the justices more time. He and Justice Clarence Thomas were the other dissenters Thursday.

The justices could decide this spring whether to add the case to their calendar for the term that begins in October.

The case is June Medical Services v. Gee.

No strict Constitutionalist he!

Where's Delerious RGB? How did she get to vote? She needs to give up the ghost and let Trump appoint another Justice. The writing is on the wall for Roberts. (1 image)

Ah Republicans. They've controlled the court since Roe, and yet they never...quite...get...the...job...done.

One or two of them always defects to uphold abortion and extend it.

New Presidents come, new appointments are made - "THIS time it will be different! THIS TIME we will get REAL conservatives."

But Lucy always moves the football, every. single. time.

Charlie Brown never figures it out. And neither do Republican conservative voters.

Catholic Roberts let us down. Why do most Catholics favor abortion? Don't they really believe in God?

Most Catholics favor abortion because there is no sufficient safety net for the poor. But we’re only 18% of the country, and justices are put on the court by Republicans

Certainly Republicans aren't perfect. They disappoint. Especially the establishment type. But 80 percent of the Republicans on the court voted the right way. 100 percent of the democrats voted the wrong way.

Then you always go on to say it is the Republicans fault. Which it is partly. But a larger blame goes to the democrats since more of them vote for it.

There is no way for any President, even Trump. To know the heart of the person they appoint. They may pretend to be something they are not. Or we could just misjudge the person.

The Safety net today is better then most people lived in the past. So that just shows a lack of faith on the part of those Catholics. They don't have faith the evidence would suggest.

Then to kill someone because they are poor. You are supposed to help them even if there is no safety net and they grow up poor. No faith I tell you. The evidence backs that up.

Not on your part on this topic. You are 100 percent pro life unless it is Hillary vs Cruz then you say ok you're not really that pro life or anti abortion/murder.

Peace bro.

Well,there isn't a whole lot of money left over to care for the poor after they spend donation money building palaces for church Princes,paying off the parents of the children they rape,buying politicians to keep them from paying taxes,etc,etc,etc.
