BP This Week: A New Era at the Supreme Court

NIFLA Reaffirms Pro-Life Freedom; Justice Anthony Kennedy Retires

John Stonestreet and Ed Stetzer review a whirlwind week at the U.S. Supreme Court, where fresh on the heels of the Masterpiece Cake Shop win for Jack Philips, the justices strike down a California law that required pro-life pregnancy care centers to advertise abortion. If all of this wasn’t big enough news, Justice Anthony Kennedy–the court’s longtime “swing vote” who sided with conservatives sometimes and liberals other times, has announced his retirement. This means President Trump will get to nominate a second justice before his second year in office is finished, potentially shifting the ideological balance of the court to the right for a generation.
