    Louisiana abortion law ruled unconstitutional...

    The supreme court ruled this morning on June Medical which was a challenge to Louisiana's law requiring abortion doctors to have admitting privileges in a hospital within 30 miles.

    Sometimes an end around works. Sometimes it doesn't.

    Apparently, Trumps appointment of two ultra-conservatives to the SC wasn't enough to save this law. I imagine that conservatives are beginning to feel cheated now that Roberts has assumed the "middle" role on the SC.

    Glad about the outcome, regardless

    Wow.

    Roberts made a big statement here. He basically sent notice by citing stare decisis, that other states will be boxed-out from trying similar maneuvers as Louisiana. In addition, he sent additional notice that he will not be a reliable vote for Roe v Wade, and the Court is not a given 5-4 Conservative vote against Roe.

    And this coming from one of the most anti-abortion judges on the Court.

    Thank you Mr. Roberts! Roe v. Wade lives to see another day!

    This ruling will become a rallying cry in Trump's campaign, and it will be an effective one for his base. Wanna' bet their formulating their campaign strategy as we speak? 'Saving the statues' is only carrying them so far.

    Gotta toss in that racist comment.


    Trump incompetance. Not even one single developed country has >1,000 COVID cases per day. We have >50,000 per day in the United States.

    Vote for Joe Biden and all Democrat candidates on November 3.
