Wikipedia / Creative Commons More discussion about this week’s US Supreme Court ruling on abortion: The debate around this case includes many controversial topics though the Texas law in question specifically addressed regulations for abortion clinics. UC Davis Law Professor Lisa Pruitt offers a closer look at the case while McGeorge Law Professor Leslie Jacobs offers perspective on the overall action by the High Court. Jacobs mentions it was highly significant to her that Justice Anthony Kennedy was in the majority for the case, given his past opinions on abortion. Pruitt says because California is highly reflective of its community, it became the most liberal state in terms of abortion.
