WASHINGTON (AP) — Supreme Court strikes down Louisiana law regulating abortion clinics.
As Kavanaugh upholds Louisiana abortion restrictions, let’s remember that Susan Collins voted to confirm Kavanaugh because of his assurances that he wouldn’t overturn Roe. https://t.co/qZO6P87ugw
Adding the Louisiana abortion decision to the DACA decision and the LGBTQ decision makes me especially proud of my former constitutional law student, Chief Justice John Roberts.
BREAKING: The Supreme Court struck down a Louisiana law that was designed to close abortion clinics and cut off access.
This case should never have made it so far.
We will continue to fight to ensure everyone can get the care you need, no matter where you live.
Chief Justice casts 5th vote to save abortion rights in Louisiana. More to follow.
#SCOTUS, by vote of 5-4, strikes down Louisiana law requiring doctors who perform abortions to have right to admit patients at nearby hospitals
BREAKING: The Supreme Court has upheld a key abortion rights decision — invalidating a Louisiana law that required doctors at clinics that perform abortions to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital.
Chief Justice Roberts joined the court’s four liberals.

BREAKING: The Supreme Court has struck down a Louisiana law regulating abortion clinics, reasserting a commitment to abortion rights over fierce opposition from dissenting conservative justices in the first big abortion case of the Trump era. https://t.co/rZuB45OErD
Today the Supreme Court reaffirmed what was clear - Louisiana’s law purporting to protect health and safety is unconstitutional and was always about restricting reproductive rights.
We will not go back.
Breathe easier today.
Continue the work tomorrow to make sure abortion remains safe and legal.
Huge ruling from Supreme Court: Roberts sides with four traditionally liberal Justices to strike down extraordinarily restrictive Louisiana abortion law. Important win for pro-choice, and Court adheres to its established precedent (struck down nearly identical Texas law in 2016).
John Roberts is an empty black robe who wants to be loved by liberals who believe in legislating from the bench. Mr. Chief Justice, if you want to be a legislator, resign and run for Congress. But at any rate, just resign! https://t.co/jqrLvfgAZq

The Supreme Court’s ruling in June Medical Services v. Russo is a victory for women’s health & freedoms. Louisiana’s draconian abortion ban was a clear violation of the Constitution, specifically designed dismantle their right to make their own health & family decisions.
"The legal doctrine of stare decisis requires us, absent special circumstances, to treat like cases alike. The Louisiana
law imposes a burden on access to abortion just as severe
as that imposed by the Texas law, for the same reasons.
Therefore Louisiana’s law cannot stand" CJ op
The Supreme Court just sent a powerful message that women’s reproductive rights are fundamental rights. No partisan law can take that away. Great ruling and thank you to @NARAL @ilyseh
and those who fight for women’s right to choose every day. 🙏 https://t.co/H1gL9z8suA
The Supreme Court just struck down Louisiana's #ProLife law, which requires abortion providers to protect women's health and safety.
This decisions threatens both the dignity of unborn children and the health of vulnerable mothers.
Didn't Susan Collins promise us that Brett Kavanaugh would protect abortion rights?
Guess what, bitch? He tried to restrict a woman's right to choose in Louisiana. Thank god Chief Justice Roberts was the swing vote.
BOUM. Et le juge en chef Roberts préserve le droit à l'#avortement avec les libéraux. Moment majeur, nouveau revers très fort pour #Trump à la #CourSuprême. https://t.co/Y8Owoq2M7V
Another blow to the Fox-Trump-GOP Evangelical base.

I don't think the MAGA people will be happy about this. Remember how angry they were last week with the gay rights case?
Supreme Court Strikes Down Louisiana Abortion Clinic Law Roberts again....The Supreme Court on Monday struck down a Louisiana law regulating abortion clinics, reasserting a commitment to abortion rights https://t.co/xouO949JM0
This is a major victory for a women’s right to choose, but we must keep fighting until every woman enjoys the right to freely make decisions about her own body.
In a 5-4 vote, the Supreme Court struck down a Louisiana law that would require abortion doctors to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital. What the case really spoke to, one expert told Emma Green, is "whether the Court is committed to precedent.” https://t.co/vMRdM48z8j
The Louisiana law, much like Texas’ HB2, was a commonsense health measure to ensure that women receive safe care. Today’s #SCOTUS ruling defies logic and reason.
Today's #SCOTUS ruling against Louisiana's restrictive abortion law is a victory for women of color & their equal access to abortion services. But the fight against two-tiered #healthcare system is not over. We must stay vigilant.
on Supreme Court decision overturning Louisiana abortion law: "Pres. Trump and his conservative supporters have been proud of his choices for the Supreme Court...but this will be one more reason to be unhappy with Chief Justice Roberts." https://t.co/uoeS0uRJDO
