Did SCOTUS Just Tip Its Hand With Abortion Ruling?

The U.S. Supreme Court has issued a decision on an abortion case, but not the one that caused protests this week in Washington, D.C.
In a 7-1 vote issued Friday, the Supreme Court blocked a Louisiana law requiring abortion doctors to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals, a law that providers said forced some clinics to shut down.
That's very similar to the Texas law that justices just heard arguments over, which is arguably the most significant abortion case the Supreme Court's heard in a generation.
