Can 13th Amendment protect the roght to an abotion?A federal judge in Washington, D.C., suggested Monday that a constitutional right to abortion may be baked into the 13th Amendment, POLITICO’s Kyle Cheney and Josh Gerstein report.

The case: In a year-old case against 10 defendants charged with conspiring to block access to a Washington, D.C., abortion clinic, one defendant contended that the conspiracy charge is no longer legitimate because the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization decision took Congress out of the business of making laws related to abortion access.

U.S. District Court Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly said the Supreme Court’s ruling in Dobbs concluded only that the 14th Amendment included no right to abortion but stopped short of definitively ruling out other aspects of the Constitution that might apply.
