READ: Supreme Court’s full decision on Louisiana’s abortion restriction

Reprinted from Baptist Press (, news service of the Southern Baptist Convention.

"There is no reason to think that a law requiring admitting privileges will necessarily have the same effect in every state", he said, though the Court's plurality this time found that the Louisiana law did, like the Texas one, represent an obstacle to women seeking abortions.

The Supreme Court on Monday struck down an abortion clinic restriction law out of Louisiana.

Roberts's alignment with the court's four liberals was striking because he declared that he continues to believe that the 2016 Texas case was "wrongly decided", but that it nonetheless should be adhered to in the Louisiana case.

Southern Baptist ethicist Russell Moore described the ruling as "disappointing and wrong-headed".

But abortion-rights supporters cited the rarity of the need for hospitalization after an abortion and said women could, if needed, be hospitalized whether their abortion practitioner had admitting privileges or not. Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania, a pro-choice Republican.

In the immigration case, Roberts also joined the four liberals in a 5-4 decision against the administration.

In one of the four dissenting opinions on the case, Justice Clarence Thomas wrote that the Supreme Court has "neither jurisdiction nor constitutional authority to declare Louisiana's duly enacted law unconstitutional".

Stare decisis instructs us to treat like cases alike.

Justice Roberts pointed to the earlier case when deciding to reject the Louisiana law.

For many involved in the fight over reproductive freedoms, it seemed quite likely that the Supreme Court would chip away at abortion rights by upholding a restrictive Louisiana abortion law.

Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a Clinton appointee, and Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, both Obama appointees, agreed with Justice Breyer's reasoning.

Read the Supreme Court's full decision, including a summary of the case, the opinions by Breyer and Roberts, and dissents from Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavannaugh, below.

"Unfortunately, the court's ruling today will not stop those hell-bent on banning abortion". "Our abortion precedents are grievously wrong and should be overruled". They argued that it placed an undue burden on a woman's right to an abortion by effectively eliminating almost all of their options for legal abortion services, according to NBC News. All others in the state were crushed under the weight of stiff restrictions and requirements in the 89 state laws Louisiana has passed to regulate abortion clinics since Roe v. Wade in 1973.

The petitioners asked the Supreme Court to rule on whether that decision violated past precedents and should be struck down. So, President Trump now has 200 judges confirmed and he's put two solid conservatives on the court, but, we're still paying for President Bush's big mistake and we're paying for his big mistake in trusting Roberts to apply the law as written.

As for the anticipated white knight for the anti-abortion minority, Justice Kavanaugh did deliver on a dissent.
