“A Chance to Challenge Roe?”

Here is a link to a good essay by Kevin Walsh analyzing the June Medical Services case, which the Supreme Court recently agreed to review.

Here is his concluding paragraph:

“Instead of expecting anything dramatic, look for Roberts to engage in a careful comparison and contrast of the record on review, which differs significantly for Louisiana’s law as compared with Texas’s in Whole Women’s Health. And expect facile comparisons between the two cases from people who have not done the reading. It is difficult to predict precisely what path a Supreme Court majority will take through the issues. But history and experience suggest some virtue in chastened aspirations for immediate Roe/Casey regime change.”
