Some time ago I asked you to pray during oral arguments before the SCOTUS concerning a 1st Amendment case from California, which tried to force pregnancy centers to provide abortion information. HERE In other words, they tried to force pro-life centers advertise for big-business abortion.
Today the SCOTUS issued their 5-4 opinion in National Institute of Family and Life Advocates (NIFLA) v. Becerra, written by Justice Thomas, in favor of the 1st Amendment rights of the pregnancy centers!
Thomas wrote the opinion, and was joined by Roberts, Kennedy, Alito and Gorsuch joined. Kennedy filed a concurring opinion in which Roberts, Alito and Gorsuch joined. Breyer dissented, joined by Ginsburg, Sotomayor and Kagan.
There is a good article with background HERE.
In other SCOTUS news, Pres. Trump’s travel ban was upheld. See the opinion for Trump v. Hawaii. The key is that the SCOTUS considered only the wording of the POTUS’ executive order and excluded consideration of anything that he said as a candidate, etc. Hence, only the wording of the order mattered. The majority found that the POTUS was within his constitutional powers to issue that order.
Roberts wrote the opinion and was joined by Kennedy, Thomas, Alito and Gorsuch. Kennedy and Thomas filed concurring opinions. Breyer dissented joined by Kagan. Sotomayor filed a dissenting opinion joined by Ginsberg.
