Supreme Court Stops Restrictive Louisiana Abortion Law

On Thursday the Supreme Court halted a Louisiana law which imposes strict regulations on abortion clinics from going into effect.

Reuters says that this is the first major test on abortion since the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy in 2018.

The court voted 5-4 to give Shreveport-based Hope Medical Group for Women, an emergency application to block the Republican-backed law from going into effect while litigation continues.
