The Supreme Court on Monday struck down a Louisiana law that could have left the state with a single abortion clinic. It was a setback for conservatives in the first major ruling on abortion since two Trump appointees joined the bench.

Guest: Adam Liptak, who covers the Supreme Court for The Times.
