Supreme Court ruling marks big win for abortion rights groups

Source: The Hill | June 29, 2020 | Cate Martel

Via The Hill’s John Kruzel, “The Supreme Court on Monday struck down a Louisiana abortion law, handing a win to abortion rights advocates who feared the conservative court would break with past rulings to rein in protections that emerged from the landmark decision in Roe v. Wade.”

The decision: 5-4 

Keep in mind: This is the first big abortion ruling in President Trump’s administration. 

Why this decision is so big: “The ruling Monday is also the clearest indication yet that the court, which now tilts more conservative with the addition of President Trump’s two nominees, is pursuing a more restrained approach than many abortion rights advocates feared.”
