Roberts Sticks it to the Neoconfederates again


Albeit with a narrow opinion concurring in the judgment only — and hence open to revision in a case in which the being challenged isn’t functionally identical to one the Court has already held, leaving abortion rights still vulnerable — but this is the best outcome that could be hoped for. Lousiana’s de facto ban on abortion clinics has been struck down. It’s very unusual for a justice to switch votes on a recent precedent in a politically salient case, but I’ll take it! At the very least, it suggests Roberts isn’t as fanatically opposed to abortion rights as he is to voting or labor rights.

I’ll have an updated thread on the opinion here.
