The Supreme Court on Monday struck down Louisiana's restrictive abortion law, which required doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital. The law would have left the state with one abortion clinic. Chief Justice John Roberts joined the court's four-member liberal minority in the 5-to-4 decision. The ruling was a victory for abortion rights advocates and a defeat for conservatives expecting anti-abortion decisions by the court's newly strengthened conservative majority. Roberts said the Louisiana law couldn't be allowed to stand because of a precedent set in 2016, when the court overturned a similar Texas law. "The Louisiana law imposes a burden on access to abortion just as severe as that imposed by the Texas law, for the same reasons," Roberts wrote, concurring with the decision. [The Washington Post]

Philippe is a descendent of Leopold II, who controlled what was then called Congo Free State from 1885 and 1908. Historians estimate that as many as 10 million people died there under Leopold's brutal rule.

Former California police officer Joseph James DeAngelo pleaded guilty on Monday to murdering 13 people as part of a years-long rape-and-killing spree in the 1970s and 1980s. He also entered guilty pleas on 13 counts of kidnapping. Under the plea deal, prosecutors read the details of the crimes, in which DeAngelo, known as the Golden State Killer, bound, raped, beat, and killed victims.
