Pro-life advocates have rallied many times for the rights of the unborn. They’re now keeping a close watch on the Supreme Court as justices get ready to issue a major ruling on abortion.

The case centers on a Louisiana state law that requires doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at area hospitals.

This anticipated ruling comes after two recent decisions by the conservative-leaning court, which many say were setbacks for the Trump administration. The first of them came June 15 when the high court ruled that the 1964 Civil Rights Act protects gay, lesbian and transgender employees from discrimination based on sex.

Justice Neil Gorsuch, who President Trump appointed, wrote the majority opinion.  

Days later, the Supreme Court decided the trump administration’s action to kill DACA didn’t follow the rules. “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals,” or DACA, is a program that allows those who were brought to the U.S. as children to remain here without fear of deportation. There are about 700,000 so-called “Dreamers” who are protected by it.

Both decisions stunned President Trump who tweeted last week, “These horrible & politically charged decisions coming out of the Supreme Court are shotgun blasts into the face of people that are proud to call themselves Republicans or Conservatives. We need more Justices or we will lose our 2nd. Amendment & everything else. Vote Trump 2020!”
