    (CNN)Abortion clinics and their allies are engaged in a game of Whac-A-Mole as they've obtained state court orders blocking individual anti-abortion activists from enforcing Texas' six-week abortion ban -- for now. But the effort has a larger end game: securing a Texas Supreme Court ruling striking down the law. Those abortion rights advocates see Texas state courts as a critical...

    Ever since President Trump started nominating new Supreme Court justices, reproductive health activists and court observers have sounded the alarm that Roe v. Wade was in jeopardy.

    (CNN)Not since the 1930s and the "Nine Old Men" era have liberal Supreme Court justices begun cases, at least theoretically, with such grim prospects. Today's imbalance -- a supermajority of six conservatives and three lone liberals -- has emerged in the substance of rulings, as well as in the process for deciding them. In recent disputes over Biden policies on...
    Kevin Dietsch/Getty Images. The Supreme Court decided this week to keep, for now, the Texas law that prohibits abortion – except when the mother’s life is in danger – when a fetus’s heartbeat is detected, usually at the sixth week of pregnancy. It is unenforceable by public officials, but allows people to sue those aiding and abetting an abortion and...
    Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) said Sunday that while she hopes the Supreme Court will not overturn Roe v. Wade, she thinks eliminating the filibuster in the Senate will allow lawmakers to institute protections of their own. “Speaker [Nancy] Pelosi says the House will vote to codify abortion protections into law,” CNN’s Dana Bash asked. “But you know better than I do,...

    President Joe Biden's sweeping liberal policy priorities already face a recalcitrant Senate. But he is increasingly finding his agenda at odds with another adversary: the Supreme Court.

The justices already lifted Biden's eviction moratorium, but it refused to...

    (CNN)The anti-abortion movement has won its biggest return yet on its decades-long investment on reshaping the courts, with a Supreme Court order that allowed the country's second most populous state to cut off almost all access to the procedure. For a generation, abortion foes have employed a multi-pronged strategy of electing state and national anti-abortion rights politicians who would pass...
    The powerful chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee is blasting the conservative justices on the U.S. Supreme Court in the wake of their 5-4 decision to allow Texas' unconstitutional abortion ban to become law after women's rights groups urged the Court to pause and examine the legislation.

                      by Ellie Gardey  Just before midnight on Wednesday, the Supreme Court issued an order denying injunctive relief to the Texas abortion providers who had sought to halt Texas’ new abortion law which prohibits abortions after an unborn baby’s heartbeat can be detected. The majority opinion said the Court would not...
    Very late Wednesday night, just before midnight, five right-wing fanatics on the United States Supreme Court took the cowardly step of preemptively overruling Roe v. Wade from the shadows. They did this quietly and surreptitiously, mindful that they would have risked the full wrath of the American public by explicitly overturning Roe, a decision that has stood for nearly half...
    (CNN)This week, President Biden's infrastructure agenda took a backseat as the last US troops left Afghanistan and Hurricane Ida devastated both the Gulf Coast and the Northeast, while the Supreme Court allowed a restrictive new abortion law to stand in Texas -- effectively outlawing most abortions sought in the state.

    (CNN)On January 22, 1973, the US Supreme Court made the landmark decision that guaranteed women their right to terminate a pregnancy before viability, usually around the 24-week mark. The case that set the precedent, Roe v. Wade, based on a challenge to Texas laws, enshrined into law the rights of all women to an abortion.Forty-eight years later, there is now...
    JENNA RIMENSNYDERIn May, when the Supreme Court agreed to hear Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, it was clear Roe v. Wade’s days were numbered. Mississippi had banned most abortions after 15 weeks of gestation. Its law was obviously unconstitutional, at least insofar as the court has interpreted the Constitution since 1973. But the state asked the court to...
    By PAUL J. WEBER and DAVID A. LIEB | The Associated Press AUSTIN, Texas — The Supreme Court allowing a new Texas law that bans most abortions is the biggest curb to the constitutional right to an abortion in decades, and Republicans in other states are already considering similar measures. The law prohibits abortions once medical professionals can detect cardiac...
    Anti-abortion activists celebrated Thursday after the Supreme Court declined to halt a Texas law that effectively prohibits almost all pregnancy terminations in the state. But Democrats believe it is Republicans who could prove to be on the losing side politically, now that abortion has been forced back onto center-stage. The Texas law enables private individuals to sue almost anyone who...
    When the U.S. Supreme Court allowed a draconian new Texas abortion law to stand this week, Democrats issued their familiar vows to fight back by advancing legislation in Congress to protect abortion rights nationwide. But to a growing segment of liberals, “fighting back” by passing another abortion bill that won’t become law is increasingly tantamount to doing nothing. That’s because...
                      by Mary Margaret Olohan  President Joe Biden condemned a ruling by the Supreme Court on Texas’ Heartbeat Act Thursday, saying the court’s decision “insults the rule of law.” The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 late Wednesday night to deny abortion providers’ requests for injunctive relief against Texas’ new law banning abortion after 6...
    By Stephen Groves | Associated Press SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — Republican states that have passed increasingly tough abortion restrictions only to see them blocked by the federal courts have a new template in an unusually written Texas law that represents the most far-reaching curb on abortions in nearly half a century. On Thursday, Republican lawmakers in at least half a...
    Thursday, CNN chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin reacted to the new Texas law that bans abortions after six weeks. Toobin lamented on “New Day” that the U.S. Supreme Court allowed the law to stand, warning that it “effectively” overturns Roe v. Wade. He said the “least” SCOTUS owes everyone is an explanation for their ruling. “I think just the most important...
    Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Thursday that the House will vote on a bill to guarantee abortion rights nationwide after the chamber returns from recess later this month, a legislative effort aimed at countering the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to greenlight Texas' unprecedented assault on reproductive freedoms. "Upon our return, the House will bring up Congresswoman Judy Chu's Women's Health Protection...
    Even Chief Justice John Roberts dissented from the majority opinion. The Supreme Court's decision on abortion wasn't a decision at all. Instead, the court let a highly restrictive, highly unusual Texas law go into effect by simply doing nothing.  Earlier this year, Texas passed a so-called "fetal heartbeat" bill, which...
    AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The Supreme Court allowing a new Texas law that bans most abortions is the biggest curb to the constitutional right to an abortion in decades, and Republicans in other states are already considering similar measures.

    LANSING, Mich. (AP) — The Supreme Court’s 5-4 decision to let a Texas ban on most abortions remain in force — at least for now — prompted warnings and cheers from advocates in Michigan who noted the state still has a 90-year-old ban on the books if Roe v. Wade is overturned. Even before the Texas case arrived at the high court,...
    (CNN)The Supreme Court's dramatic 5-4 action leaving a Texas abortion ban in place at midnight Wednesday establishes that the Roberts Court no longer is Roberts' Court. Chief Justice John Roberts dissented with three liberal justices in what could be regarded as the least considered but most consequential case in years. Since Justice Amy Coney Barrett joined the court last October...
    They need reinforcements. [T]he majority’s decision is emblematic of too much of this Court’s shadow-docket decision-making—which every day becomes more un-reasoned, inconsistent, and impossible to defend. That's Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan, dissenting in the decision by the Supreme Court's conservatives, minus chief John Roberts, to end the protections of Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey for the...
    President Joe Biden condemned a ruling by the Supreme Court on Texas’ Heartbeat Act Thursday, saying the court’s decision “insults the rule of law.” The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 late Wednesday night to deny abortion providers’ requests for injunctive relief against Texas’ new law banning abortion after 6 weeks. The president weighed in on the ruling Thursday morning, calling it...
    (CNN)Supreme Court justices tout judicial integrity and the importance of public confidence in their decisions, but the court's midnight silence Tuesday while letting a Texas law that curtails abortion rights take effect -- followed by a midnight order Wednesday -- offers the latest and most compelling example of its lack of transparency and the cost.The justices' secretive patterns have gained...

    A woman who claims that Jeffrey Epstein sexually abused her when she was 14 is asking the Supreme Court to rule that federal prosecutors in Miami violated her civil rights when, without consulting her, they offered him a 'sweetheart' deal in 2008. Courtney Wild was among the first of Epstein's victims to come forward, and has been among the most...
    While we waited all day and foolishly hoped the Supreme Court would put Texas’ blatantly unconstitutional six-week abortion ban on hold, less than 24 hours after it went into effect, the highest court in the land said, nah, let’s let it go ahead.  BREAKING: By a 5–4 vote, with Roberts joining the liberals, the Supreme Court REFUSES to block Texas...
    New York lawmakers voted Wednesday on extending an eviction moratorium for tenants who are behind on rent because of the pandemic, as almost $2.3billion in rent relief funds go unused.  The moratorium was also modified after the Supreme Court last month struck down part of the law.   Gov. Kathy Hochul called the Legislature to return with a goal of putting...
    Enough talk. Act. The Supreme Court just made it absolutely clear that they're ready to toss the one thing Democrats have been running on since 1973, the year Roe v. Wade was decided—protecting women's right to choose an abortion and have control over their own bodies. By refusing to act to uphold Roe in Texas, the conservative majority played their...
    Remember when Sen. Susan Collins was so certain that Supreme Court nominee Brett “I like beer” Kavanaugh would respect the precedent of Roe v. Wade? Remember when she said this: xActual words from @SenatorCollins Kavanaugh floor speech on subject of Roe/abortion/precedent:“In short, his views on honoring precedent would preclude attempts to do by stealth that which one has committed not...
