Everybody loves Lakeview Gator. Look at him all fat and happy just enjoying the day. Don't we wish we could all be just a little more like.... This just in. The gator has been killed.

This is exactly how I felt writing that headline this morning....... https://t.co/iGu3zmqxv4

Quoted @SenJohnKennedy

Extremely troubling that #SCOTUS strikes down a Louisiana law that fundamentally protects women. The abortion industry insists that baseline standards of medical care don’t apply to them. They're wrong. #ProLife https://t.co/b1tKUARTHn

Another drop in this particular bucket of discontent with the Supreme Court's ruling from @SenJohnKennedy: https://t.co/0TftKMkdPY https://t.co/c6LzXn1ZwD

Just to be clear, the responses from Louisiana's elected officials is the least surprising thing this morning. For years, they've been some of the staunchest anti-abortion presences, often acting as high-profile mouthpieces for legislation restricting abortion access

Quoted @SteveScalise

🚨 Horrible SCOTUS decision → The Supreme Court just ruled that states can't even hold abortion clinics to similar health standards as other medical centers. Women and babies deserve emergency care—no matter the situation or what abortionists think. We won’t quit fighting.

Here's from @SteveScalise, who is clearly not happy with this decision: https://t.co/7ZJhWBXaHW https://t.co/GT3mS7yUWZ

Notably absent from my inbox as of about 30 minutes after the ruling: anything from @BillCassidy, who has been watching this case closely and attended the oral arguments. I can't imagine his office didn't have a statement prepared for either outcome...

The @ReproRightsUN is celebrating this as a big win, highlighting that abortion restrictions disproportionately affect people of color, young people, poor people and rural communities https://t.co/crxTD7jG2O

Roberts has made it clear that his goal is to avoid dragging the court through partisan politics, and if you look at his recent swinginess (before, he leaned to the conservatives) through that lens, a lot of the new cases where he sides with the liberal justices make more sense

But back to the justices, it looks like this decision (and several other recent ones such as the ruling about the EPA applying to LGBT folk) has cemented that Roberts is the Court's new swing vote, replacing Kennedy

Before I continue, the law would have effectively shut down all but 1 of La.'s handful of abortion clinics, leaving only 1 in New Orleans to serve the state

But this ruling indicates he is willing to buck prescedent for some issues (including ones D's were concerned about such as states trying to chip away at Roe v. Wade) he sided firmly w/ the conservative justices

Justice Brett Kavenaugh (whose appointment was marred by controversy over alleged sexual assault in college) said during his confirmation hearing he would look to previous rulings to inform his decisions
