Last Friday, October 4, 2019, the Supreme Court announced that it would take up a pro-life Louisiana law, making it the first time the high court will review an abortion case since Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh joined the Supreme Court. If the justices uphold Louisiana’s law, the state will then become the seventh in the country with only one abortion clinic.
The law that is currently being reviewed is virtually identical to the one that the Supreme Court ruled unconstitutional back in 2016. In February, the court said that it would closely examine the case when it agreed to block the law requiring doctors who carry out abortions to have admitting privileges at a hospital close by.
Abortion rights groups quickly responded to the Supreme Court’s announcement.
“Louisiana is openly defying the Supreme Court’s decision from just three years ago, in which they found an identical Texas law unconstitutional,” stated Nancy Northup, the president and CEO of the Center for Reproductive Rights. This group is actively challenging Louisiana’s law.
Northup added, “We are counting on the Court to follow its precedent, otherwise, clinics will needlessly close and there will be just one doctor left in the entire state to provide abortion care.”
With one of the most conservative Supreme Courts in recent memory, abortion has been challenged by states throughout the South and Midwest. BLP reported on Alabama’s heartbeat law which received national attention for its passage.
This is part of a larger ploy by pro-life activists to overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court case in 1973 which legalized abortion nationwide.
By overturning this decision, tenth amendment rights would be restored and pro-life states could be given the autonomy they need to craft their own pro-life policies.

Unlike other sports leagues, the UFC has uniquely positioned itself by not adopting the woke antics of leagues such as the NFL and NBA.
Masvidal is a veteran of MMA promotions such as Strikeforce, Bellator, and the UFC. He is currently fighting under the UFC banner and holds a record of 35-14. According to MMA website Sherdog, he is currently ranked in 4th place . Similarly, he is ranked in 4th place according to the UFC’s rankings.
The Welterweight fighter currently owns the record for the fastest knockout in UFC history, after he knocked out Ben Askren with a flying knee five seconds into the first round. Additionally, Masvidal won the “BMF” championship against Nate Diaz in 2019 after he battered Diaz and forced a technical knockout via doctor stoppage.
Masvidal fought current welterweight champion Kamaru Usman on less than a week’s notice for the UFC Welterweight Championship at UFC 251, after he replaced the original challenger Gilbert Burns, who tested positive for the Wuhan virus. Before the fight took place, Masvidal signed a multi-fight contract with the UFC. Masvidal ended up losing the fight via unanimous decision.
Nevertheless, the card reportedly netted 1.3 million pay-per-view buys in America.
