Symposium: June Medical Services v. Russo: When a “win” is not a win

She filed an amicus brief on behalf of NWLC and 72 other organizations in support of the petitioners in June Medical Services v. Russo. In June Medical Services v.

Symposium: Will the Supreme Court legitimate pretext?

Aziza Ahmed is a professor of law at Northeastern University School of Law. She joined an amicus brief on behalf of reproductive justice scholars in support of the petitioners in June Medical Services v. Gee. When the Supreme Court decided Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt in 2016, pro-choice advocates let out a collective sigh of relief. In declaring two provisions of a Texas law unconstitutional – an admitting-privileges requirement for physicians providing abortions and a requirement that c...

The Fourth-Best Reason to Overturn Roe

Two hundred–plus members of Congress, all but two of them Republicans, have signed a brief to the Supreme Court regarding June Medical Services v. Gee. The case involves a Louisiana law requiring abortion doctors to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital, a policy similar to a Texas one the Court struck down in 2016. The Court might address the situation with a scalpel, or it might take the opportunity to reconsider its abortion jurisprudence more broadly.A lot of the brief consists of t...

Majority Of Women Feel Relief, Not Regret, After Abortion, Study Says

(CNN) — One of the largest studies about women’s emotions after an abortion finds most feel relieved and don’t regret their choice, even if they struggled beforehand or worried about stigma. The study, one of the largest to date on the topic, was published Sunday in the journal Social Science & Medicine. Researchers found that at five years after having an abortion, only 6% expressed primarily negative emotions. The overwhelming majority of women surveyed — 84% — had positive emotions or no emot...

Symposium: In the Louisiana abortion case, maybe the best defense is a good offense

Michael C. Dorf is the Robert S. Stevens Professor of Law at Cornell University. He blogs at  dorfonlaw.org . Chief Justice John Roberts surprised some observers when he joined his four more liberal colleagues to grant a stay of the decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit in . The stay blocked Louisiana’s law requiring doctors performing abortions to have admitting privileges at local hospitals. The petitioners argued that the Louisiana law was substantially similar to the Tex...

Symposium: Undue burden, balancing test or bright line? Court should take the Louisiana admitting-privileges case to clarify the meaning of Whole Woman’s Health

Catherine Glenn Foster is the president and chief executive officer of Americans United for Life. The U.S. Supreme Court’s last pronouncement on abortion came in 2016, in the jurisprudential netherworld between the death of Justice Antonin Scalia and the appointment of Justice Neil Gorsuch. Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt invalidated portions of Texas’ HB 2, including a requirement that doctors performing abortions maintain patient-admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of their ...

Empirical SCOTUS: If Ginsburg leaves, it could be the liberals’ biggest loss yet – A look back at previous justices replaced with more conservative successors

The saga over Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s health seems to ebb and flow from the headlines almost daily. Part of the mystery relates to the amount of information shared with the public. We know that, while treating Ginsburg for rib fractures, doctors found malignant lesions in her lungs that were promptly removed, and that subsequent tests have shown no evidence of any other cancer. Ginsburg has since missed oral arguments and is reportedly recovering at home while keeping current with the cour...

Thousands flee fast-moving wildfire in Northern California

PARADISE, Calif. — Thousands of people were ordered to evacuate a fast-moving wildfire that exploded in size Thursday, threatening several Northern California communities and forcing panicked residents to race to help neighbors who had to drive through walls of flames to escape. It was not immediately known if there were injuries or fatalities. The Butte County Sheriff’s office said an evacuation order was issued for areas of Paradise, a town of about 27,000 people 180 miles (290 kilometers) nor...

Justice Kennedy, abortion and the legacy of a third choice

Sherry F. Colb is Professor of Law and Charles Evans Hughes Scholar at Cornell Law School. When I clerked for Justice Harry Blackmun in 1992, his practice was to have breakfast with his law clerks every morning. One day, after we sat down to eat, the justice handed me a letter and asked me to read it aloud. I read the first paragraph and looked up uncertainly. The writer had said Blackmun was in the third trimester of his life, ready to enter the abortuary in the sky. I asked whether we should h...

The Roberts court after Kennedy

[Editor’s Note: In this piece, Eric Citron takes a quick look at five areas of the law influenced by Justice Anthony Kennedy. We will have additional posts that take deeper dives into these and other topics.] At least since the retirement of Justice Sandra Day O’Connor in 2006, Justice Anthony Kennedy has been at the center of the Supreme Court’s ideological divide — the median justice most advocates thought they would need to convince to have a chance of prevailing. Of course, it hasn’t always ...

Eye Prefer Paris Book of the Month April 2018: Finding Fontainebleau: An American Boy in France by Thad Carhart

One of the books I first read when I moved to Paris in 2005 that’s made a lasting impression on me is The Piano Shop on the Left Bank by Thad Carhart. A memoir, it tells the poignant story of how Carhart lived in Fontainebleau as a child, studying piano, only to be traumatized by his fear of performing at a piano recital. Vowing never to play again, he moves to Paris in the 1990s as an adult with his own family and gets in touch again with his love of piano by buying a used piano at a shop ne...

Five more horses coming in

Since we dodged the whole Equine Herpes Virus scare and our two boys tested negative, my wife is taking in five more from a recuse facility. One mare that may be pregnant and four foals, soon to be yearlings. I'm not particularly thrilled about it since winter just started and we are looking at a long spell of cold we have to deal with. None of them have any training on them, even the mare. But my wife loves training the babies and is also good at training older horses, so she's very happy. Tru...

Academic highlight: Telling stories in the Supreme Court

Linda Edwards is a professor at UNLV Boyd School of Law. Among the welter of amicus briefs in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt was a filed by 112 women lawyers. In it, these women told the world, many for the first time, that they have had an abortion. The brief marks their “coming out” to their professional world — a combative, masculine milieu where gender-based vulnerability can be the kiss of death. But the brief is more than a public disclosure. These women spoke from inside the justi...

Lawless and Cruel: The HHS Abortion Scandal That's Flying Under the Radar

So many horrifying things are happening every day (see, for example, Jack’s must-read post on the tax bill) that it has become difficult to keep track of, or even to appreciate, every unprecedented and outrageous development.  This is one such case that has escaped much attention--it involves remarkable cruelty and lawlessness, against very vulnerable minors in the custody of the government, committed by a zealous official at the Department of Health and Human Services, and, distressingly, abett...

Author Thad Carhart had just that experience when his father was stationed in Fontainebleau, France, in the early 1950s: All these years later I can recall with keen precision the moment when the bottom dropped out, because that is exactly what it felt like: one moment we w...

Monday round-up

At NPR, Nina Totenberg reports on the debut of Justice Neil Gorsuch, concluding that Gorsuch “is probably even more conservative than the justice he replaced, Antonin Scalia”; she also reports that Gorsuch may soon lose his place as the most junior justice, because “it is unlikely that [Justice Anthony] Kennedy will remain on the court for the full four years of the Trump presidency”: Although Kennedy “long ago hired his law clerks for the coming term, he has not done so for the following term (...

Depending On Which Trump We Get, He Could Be Really Bad For Abortion Rights

WASHINGTON ― President-elect Donald Trump has repeatedly changed his mind on abortion. He described himself as “very pro-choice” before he decided to run for president. During the campaign, he suggested that states should be able to outlaw abortion, and that women should be punished for having them. At one point, he offered five different positions on abortion in three days. It’s too soon to say which policies he will support in office. He has run on a , and his vice presidential p...

Who — Trump or Hillary — was confused or dishonest about abortion at the last debate?

I'm reading "Fact-Checking the Debate Fact-Checkers on Abortion" by Ramesh Ponnuru at The National Review. Many news outlets accused Trump of misrepresenting Clinton’s position by bringing up the possibility of killing “the baby on the ninth month on the final day.” This does not happen, said the fact-checkers. But go back and read the transcript: What Trump said (in two iterations) was that “if you go with what Hillary is saying in the ninth month you can take the baby and rip the baby out of t...

Do the Supreme Court’s constitutional cases turn on questions of law or fact? In Supreme Facts: The Prevalence and Justification of Social Facts in Landmark Decisions of the Supreme Court, political scientists Morgan Marietta and Tyler Farley examine that question. Marietta and Farley studied a hundred of the most important Supreme Court constitutional cases and discovered that 59 of the decisions turn in part on the Court’s view of “social facts.” The authors define “social facts” (also known a...
