Chief Justice Roberts Sides With Liberals to Strike Down Pro-Life Law
Chief Justice John Roberts is a liberal.
President George W. Bush put a flaming, pro-abortion, pro-gay marriage, pro-transgender Obamacare leftist on the highest court in the land.
On Monday the Supreme Court ruled that a Louisiana law requiring that individuals who perform abortions at clinics have admitting privileges in a nearby hospital is unconstitutional.

The Supreme Court said the law placed an undue burden on women who want to kill their unborn babies.
The court ruled 5-4 in the case, June Medical Services LLC v. Russo, with the chief justice casting a deciding vote by siding with the court’s liberal justices.
“The legal doctrine of stare decisis requires us, absent special circumstances, to treat like cases alike,” Roberts wrote in a concurring opinion. “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.”
In dissent, Justice Clarence Thomas wrote, “Today a majority of the Court perpetuates its ill-founded abortion jurisprudence by enjoining a perfectly legitimate state law and doing so without jurisdiction.”
