Supreme court halts new law restricting abortion in Louisiana

The right to Choice should be non-negotiable. Why is it that men continue to make Victorian Age decisions truncating the rights of Women? America is so backwards when it comes to a Woman’s right to protect her body. I’m ashamed and embarrassed.  In this case it is FOUR men on the Supreme Court who would have restricted the rights of Women. These men have issues!!! Grow up!!!

Justices vote not to allow enforcement of new regulations on abortion clinics, in case testing conservative court’s view.

The US 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.
