The U.S. Supreme Court has rejected Louisiana state anti-abortion law. The ruling is a victory for human rights defenders.
The outcome is also surprising because the court is considered conservative after the appointment of several judges by US President Trump.
The controversial law imposed restrictions on doctors who performed abortions.
As a result, they could hardly perform the interventions anymore. Five judges in favour of the deletion of the law, four voted against.
A few years ago, the Supreme Court had said no to a Texas law very similar to Louisiana.
In 1973, the Supreme Court ruled in a groundbreaking judgment that women have the right to abortion.
