- At The Economist’s Espresso blog, Steven Mazie reports that “[t]his week the Supreme Court decides [in June Medical Services v. Gee] whether a Louisiana abortion law will go into effect,” and that “[h]ow the justices handle this case will give a clue as to whether Roe v Wade, the ruling in 1973 that recognised abortion rights, has continued vitality.”
- At the Pacific Legal Foundation blog, Anthony Francois weighs in on Kisor v.
