SCOTUS

In the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision this week to strike down a Louisiana abortion law, the state — and particularly the defense mounted by Attorney General Jeff Landry — has been criticized for its tactics by abortion-rights groups.

The U.S. Supreme Court has struck a Louisiana anti-abortion law nearly identical to one deemed unconstitutional in Texas four years ago, in a landmark ruling for abortion rights. The law was expected to decimate abortion access in the state — shutting at least two of the state’s last three clinics, or perhaps all three.
