Pro-life advocates hope that the U.S. Supreme Court will ultimately uphold a Louisiana law requiring abortionists to have hospital admitting privileges despite the justices putting the law on hold last week.
The court voted 5-4 on Thursday to grant abortion provider June Medical Services an emergency stay of Louisiana’s Unsafe Abortion Protection Act. Chief Justice John Roberts joined the more liberal judges in halting the law, while Justices Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Clarence Thomas voted to allow it.
