The Supreme Court has ruled 5-4 a Louisiana’s anti-abortion law that would have left just one abortion clinic in the state is unconstitutional. 

Conservative-leaning Chief Justice John Roberts stated, “The Louisiana law imposes a burden on access to abortion just as severe as that imposed by the Texas law, for the same reasons. Therefore Louisiana’s law cannot stand under our precedents”. 

This is a historic ruling in that John Roberts who has been on the Supreme Court since the Raegan administration had sided with anti-abortion decisions in the past including a ruling which Roberts had mentioned above in Texas, four years ago.
