(CNN)The Supreme Court provided a strong illustration Tuesday of the approach the majority of the court may take when it comes to the abortion issue: avoid making a decision unless it is absolutely necessary.
The court decided 7-2 to uphold an Indiana law specifying requirements for disposing of fetal remains by abortion providers. But it also declined to consider the portion of the law that bars abortion providers from terminating pregnancies because of fetal characteristics, like gender, race or disability. In doing so, the justices are signaling that the recent draconian abortion laws will not succeed in overturning settled law on a woman's right to abortion.
