Supreme Court blocks Louisiana abortion law, 1st major ruling on abortion with Kavanaugh on court

Feb. 7, 2019, 9:40 PM EST
By Pete Williams
The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday blocked Louisiana from enforcing a law that women's groups said would leave only a single doctor legally allowed to perform abortions in the state.

By 5-4 vote, the court said the restrictions must remain on hold while challengers appeal a lower court decision in favor of the law.

It was the Supreme Court's first significant action on the hot-button issue of abortion since Donald Trump's nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, replaced Anthony Kennedy, who generally voted with the court's liberals to uphold abortion rights.

The vote was not a ruling on the legal merits of the Louisiana restriction, but the decision to keep the law on hold signals that a majority of the justices have doubts about its constitutionality.

BTW, Chief Justice John Roberts was the fifth vote.

6. Last I knew, the GOP/Right maintained majority in the Congress/WH and the SC until

just recently.

How do you lay this on the DEMS?

7. Are you saying the GOP is voting for RBG?

last I heard her staffers were all Democrats...with a vested interest in denying Trump another USSC pick.

8. No, what I'm saying is how do you justify laying this in the DEMs lap when the gop

had owned Congress until just recently.

9. because Corruption has always been a Democrat thing.

bribes, insider trading, influence peddling, lobbyist trips and gifts, breaking every rule that they enforce on Republicans. Look at VA Gov Northam, notice anything hypocritical?

12. This is not a vote in doubt of the bans constitutionality

it was a vote to allow challengers make their case. It was a move to place a hold in the law so arguments can be heard!

You are reading too uch in the hold.
