A supposedly “conservative” Supreme Court Justice sided with the liberal vote in case related to abortion regulation in Louisiana.
“The justices said by a 5-4 vote late Thursday that they will not allow the state to put into effect a law that requires abortion providers to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals,” according to The Washington Times.
In case, June Medical Services v. Gee, Justice Roberts put a hold on the law for a chance to fully review the case by siding with the more liberal leaning Justices.
The Washington Times reported, “A district court judge had struck down the Louisiana law because he found it would have resulted in the closure of at least one, and perhaps two, of the state’s three abortion clinics, and left the state with no more than two doctors who could meet the law’s requirements. But the federal appeals court in New Orleans upheld the law, concluding it was not certain that any clinic would have to close.”
The Louisiana clinics state that if the law passes some clinics will be forced to stop performing abortions and close, making it difficult to reopen. The full appeals court voted early this year 9-6 to pass the case to a higher power. Thus, sending the case to the Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court will decide in the spring if they will add the case to their schedule that starts in October.
President Trump’s nominated Justice, Brett Kavanaugh, who voted for the law, wrote a dissenting opinion. He stated that the court made the decision too soon because “the state’s regulation provides that there will be a 45-day regulatory transition period before the new law is applied.”
The law would give doctors time to obtain admitting privileges before having to close down their abortion factories. Kavanaugh said, if the doctors succeed in getting their privileges, they can continue performing abortions and if they fail, they can return to court.
Justice Roberts disagrees that doctors performing the medical procedure should have hospital admitting privileges, blocking a common sense abortion law. Regardless of Roberts views on pre-born life, he now places women at higher health risks by not giving them the care they need in instances of botched abortions. Yet another “conservative” Justice fails to uphold the true conservative value of protecting life in the womb.
Mark Levin expressed his disappointment with Justice Roberts decision:
John Roberts is a disgrace. Another in a long line of lawyers who deceived the Republican presidents who appointed them. https://t.co/HRZdx7193j

Texas City Stands Up for Life by Passing Pro-Life Ordinance
Planned Parenthood is not welcome.
The town of New Home, located south of Lubbock, became the 15th city in Texas to prohibit abortion on September 29, 2020.
The New Home city council unanimously voted for the resolution following state politicians and local officials discussing the idea of bringing back a Planned Parenthood facility to the city. New Home Baptist pastor L.J. Wright was a champion of this pro-life effort and hopes that the vote will change Lubbock’s city council decision to bring back Planned Parenthood.
“With the City Council in Lubbock seemingly balking at the ordinance while claiming to be Pro-Life, this puts the pressure directly on them,” Wright commented. “Every city in Lynn County should consider following suit with New Home, and get behind Mark Lee Dickson… I am challenging all of West Texas to stand up for life, and make their city a Sanctuary City for the Unborn.”
Mark Lee Dickson, a pro-life activist and director of Right to Life of East Texas, crafted this ordinance.
Texas Senator Charles Perry, who represents Lubbock, has sent a petition around requesting that Planned Parenthood be kept out of Lubbock and signed on a letter calling Lubbock to pass a similar ordinance.
“Passing an ordinance designating Lubbock as a Sanctuary City for the Unborn will help to continue the Texas belief that life begins at conception, while also protecting the safety of mothers,” Perry wrote in the letter, which was also signed by State Representatives Dustin Burrows and John Frullo.
Similar to the other cities who have passed such ordinances, New Home’s ordinance implements the abortion ban by imposing fines on abortion providers. The catch is that this ordinance will go into effect once Roe v. Wade is overturned. Providers will also be held liable for carrying out abortions, and families who have children that were aborted will now be able to sue them.
The Texas reported that “Waskom, Naples, Joaquin, Tenaha, Gilmer, Westbrook, Rusk, Colorado City, Gary, Big Spring, Wells, Whiteface, and East Mountain are the other cities that have adopted the ordinance, modeled by Dickson. The town of Omaha adopted the ordinance but later pulled its teeth, making it a symbolic resolution instead.”
Texans are getting fed up with the inaction of legislators at the state and federal level. So, they’re taking matters into their own hands at the local level. Similar to Second Amendment Sanctuary resolutions, these pro-life movements represent a growing dissatisfaction with the political status quo and are likely a sign of how politics will be conducted from here on out.
