BREAKING: SCOTUS Strikes Down Anti-Abortion Law

The Daily Beast reports:

In a highly anticipated decision, the Supreme Court reversed a Louisiana abortion law that opponents say would close all but one abortion clinic in the state and have lasting repercussions for reproductive rights across the country. The 5-4 decision in June Medical Services v. Russo, written by Justice Breyer, will have effects far beyond Louisiana.

Abortion advocates feared that upholding the law would open the door for other states to pass similar laws and further restrict abortion access without fear of court intervention—effectively gutting the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that made abortion legal across the country.

As the first abortion ruling since Justice Brett Kavanaugh joined the bench, the decision may also signal how the new conservative majority will rule in the future.
