KY law struck down (15-weeks)

“If the Act goes into effect, standard D&E abortions will no longer be performed in the Commonwealth due to ethical and legal concerns regarding compliance with the law,” he wrote.

The result, the judge said, would be that women lose “the right to obtain a pre-viability abortion anywhere in the Commonwealth of Kentucky after 15 weeks.”

So apparently the conservative SCOTUS reversed an unrelated 1979 ruling today on a 5-4 partisan line vote. The ruling itself was rather inconsequential, other than the glaring fact that this court is now demonstrating they are not afraid to tear up previous rulings.

Which the court’s liberal side was quick to point out in a rather dark foreboding manner.

Alabama sent the most restrictive abortion bill in the country to the governor's desk Tuesday night, with the state's Senate passing legislation that could punish doctors who perform abortions with life in prison.

An even more restrictive bill

“Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer warned Monday that his colleagues might be too eager to overturn earlier rulings that he said deserve respect as established precedent, mentioning a key abortion ruling as one of them,” NBC News reports.

Said Breyer: “The law can retain the necessary stability only if this court resists that temptation, overruling prior precedent only when the circumstances demand it.”
