The decision as a signal to stop for the time being, an abortion law in Louisiana. Only a few days ago President Trump had campaigned for a restriction of abortion.
The Supreme court of the United States has stopped by injunction a law that abortions would be restricted in the state of Louisiana. The conservative judge John Roberts joined the opinion of the four more liberal judges on the Supreme Court and overruled, therefore, the four other conservative judges.
The law in Louisiana provided more stringent rules for Doctors and hospitals, the abortions. According to critics, it could result in the entire state, only a doctor would have legal abortions.Kavanaugh and from gorsuch votes against injunction

In the next session of the constitutional court, there will be a hearing before the judge will make a final decision about the Louisiana law. Whether Roberts remained in his no, is not in sight. He had not decided two years ago that a similar law in Texas against the Constitution and voted with the conservative majority.
