This time on abortion rights, something he was previously dependable on.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court on Monday struck down a Louisiana law regulating abortion clinics, reasserting a commitment to abortion rights over fierce opposition from dissenting conservative justices in the first big abortion case of the Trump era.

Chief Justice John Roberts joined with his four more liberal colleagues in ruling that the law requiring doctors who perform abortions have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals violates the abortion right the court first announced in the landmark Roe v. Wade decision in 1973.


Pretty much anybody doing invasive procedures outside a hospital needs admitting privileges; what is actually happening is that abortion clinics are being specially insulated from the law, and Roberts is participating.

Roberts can only be depended upon to do his best to keep a lid on radical changes coming out of the court...especially when it involves precedent.

That is what Bush picked him for. Period.

He didn't join the majority opinion on this one, but wrote his own. His reasoning: Stare Decisis He states he is still against the original ruling but because of stare decisis he feels he should support its precedent.

stare decisis

from The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition.
noun The doctrine or principle that precedent should determine legal decision making in a case involving similar facts.

The only way to solve this problem is to neuter his influence by picking a hard core conservative to replace Ginsberg or Breyer when they finally croak or retire. Specifically, a conservative that doesn't worship stare decisis as his/her god like Roberts does.
