(Worthy News) – The Supreme Court divided 5-4 on Wednesday, leaving a Texas ban on abortion after six weeks in place while litigation challenging the law continues in the lower courts.

Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. and the court’s three Democratic appointees, Justices Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, would have blocked the law while the case continued in the lower courts. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More…) ]
