Among the cases on the docket for the Supreme Court this term are ones especially important to Catholics.

Saint John’s University’s political expert Brian Browne joins us to discuss the case that pro-live advocates are watching closely: a Louisiana law that regulates abortion being challenged.

This will mark the first abortion case before the Supreme Court since President Trump appointed two conservative justices.

Another case to be decided is whether Montana can exclude religious schools from a state scholarship program, one that could provide much needed assistance for parents who want to send their kids to religious classrooms.

On October 8, the Supreme Curt will hear arguments on whether federal law protects gay and transgender people.

And next month, the justices will consider the fate of the “dreamers,” nearly 800,000 immigrants brought to the U.S. as children.
