On June 29, 2020, the Supreme Court issued a ruling that overturned a Louisiana abortion law.
The ruling has delighted pro-abortion advocates who originally feared that the “conservative” Supreme Court would issue more hardline rulin on pro-life related matters.
The justices voted 5-4 to nullify Louisiana’s admitting-privilege law. Chief Justice John Roberts voted along with the court’s four leftist judges.
The abortion issue will continue to be a topic of discussion in the 2020 elections now that the court has become rather tepid on the matter.
Additionally, this decision indicates that the court is more moderate than advertised.
In The Hill’s coverage of the incident, it noted that “Roberts said his vote was guided by deference to prior rulings, particularly the court’s 2016 decision in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt, which struck down a nearly identical Texas law.”
“The legal doctrine of stare decisis requires us, absent special circumstances, to treat like cases alike,” Roberts wrote in his opinion. “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 under our precedents.”
The Louisiana case came about from a constitutional challenge to a law passed back in 2014. The law, Act 620, mandated doctors who carry out abortions to hold “active admitting privileges” at a hospital that lies within 30 miles of their facility.
It’s becoming abundantly clear that the Supreme Court, even with an allegedly conservative majority, has become unreliable in safeguarding conservative principles.
Conservatives must start applying stronger standards when it comes to nominating actually conservative judges.

Protestors have engaged in the burning of the American flag during previous July 4th protests, suggesting that the act is becoming a cultural liberal tradition of its own, an alternative to American Independence Day celebration.
