The Supreme Court announced Oct. 4, just three days before it begins its new term, that it will add an abortion case to its docket.
In two recent actions, the U.S. Supreme Court revealed its death penalty decisions are hardly cut and dried.
There are a few reasons that the Supreme Court is now dominated by religious minorities.
10 legal and religious historians said in a court filing that there is no evidence that “anti-Catholic or anti-religious animus” played a role in the adoption of the Missouri constitutional provision. But that is one of the arguments being used against the provision in one of the first cases Neil Gorsuch will hear now that he has been seated on the Supreme Court.
It is now possible for states to redirect Title X family planning funding away from clinics that perform abortions, such as planned parenthood. President Donald Trump signed the bill into law, overruling what some consider the previous administration’s “parting gift to the abortion industry.”
President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Neil Gorsuch, has been championed by conservatives as the defender of religious freedom. Yet Gorsuch’s opposition to overturning long-standing precedents which may include Roe v. Wade or gay marriage may leave some pro-lifers wondering if they made the right choice.
