Supreme Court strikes down restrictive Louisiana abortion law

Source: NBC

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court ruled Monday that Louisiana's tough restriction on abortion violates the Constitution, a surprising victory for abortion rights advocates from an increasingly conservative court.

The ruling struck down a law passed by Louisiana's legislature in 2014 that required any doctor offering abortion services to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles. Its enforcement had been blocked by a protracted legal battle.

Two Louisiana doctors and a medical clinic sued to get the law overturned. They said it would leave only one doctor at a single clinic to provide services for nearly 10,000 women who seek abortions in the state each year.

The challengers said the requirement was identical to a Texas law the Supreme Court struck down in 2016. With the vote of then-Justice Anthony Kennedy, the court ruled that Texas imposed an obstacle on women seeking access to abortion services without providing any medical benefits.

John James, independent thinker (oh, and wtf: "our Jewish friends")

I'm not sure it helps to namecheck another minority group, which is also targeted by the radical right ("our Jewish friends" ) to make this point. This is Senate candidate John James this morning in a local TV interview.

“While this type of antisemitic rhetoric that portrays Jews as exhibiting undue power or influence is hateful and dangerous, it is especially galling for James to pit Black and Jewish Americans against each other, when our bond, particularly in MI, is as strong+necessary as ever.

“Jewish Michiganders have another - far superior - choice in November. Our Senator @GaryPeters
has led the fight against antisemitism and white nationalism, and has championed increased security funding for synagogues.
