Anti-abortion and abortion rights demonstrators on Monday took turns jousting with signage in front of the Supreme Court, as they awaited the justices’ ruling on a controversial Texas law that sought to limit abortions throughout the state.
Justices ruled 5-3 to overturn the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in Whole Women’s Health v. Hellerstedt, with Justice Anthony M. Kennedy joining his liberal colleagues on a seminal, precedent-setting decision. Last year, Kennedy was the deciding vote on Obergefell v. Hodges, the case that consecrated gay marriage as a constitutional right.
