Today’s 5-4 Heritage Foundation position papers from the Supreme Court:
- It is probably unconstitutional to make “crisis pregnancy centers” provide information about abortion, although it is definitely constitutional to make doctors read pro-life propaganda before a woman can obtain an abortion.
- Despite the extensive evidence provided by Donald Trump’s own statements, the travel ban issued by Our President is probably constitutional. Please ignore that we found far weaker evidence of animus dispositive in Masterpiece Cakeshop earlier this month.
More on both later, but this is a ridiculously hacky and partisan court, and the fact that Republicans have maintained control of the Supreme Court despite losing the popular vote in 6 out of 7 presidential elections has been immensely significant. It’s Donald Trump’s Court all the way.
