Abortion at the Supreme Court; All Eyes on Kennedy

March 2, 2016

(CNN) – When the Supreme Court meets on Wednesday to hear a challenge to a Texas abortion law — the first major case to be heard this term with only eight justices — all eyes will be on Justice Anthony Kennedy. The case will most likely come down to the 79-year-old justice, and from his perch near the center of the bench, he will be a target for lawyers hoping to get his vote. It’s a position Kennedy has been in before and both sides have reason to worry.
