Pre-US Reports Printing of an Important Case Concerning Abortion Signed by Chief Justice Rehnquist Supreme Court of the United States. [Rehnquist, William (1924-2005)]. (Slip Opinion) Webster, Attorney General of Missouri, Et al. v. Reproductive Health Services, Et al. [Washington, DC: Government Printing Office, 1989]. vii, , 23, , 11, , 7, , 23, , 14 pp. Complete. Signature of Chief Justice Rehnquist to head of first page. A few tiny marks to p.i, otherwise fine. $500. * A decision that undermined a key provision of Roe v. Wade, Webster v. Reproductive Health Services upheld a Missouri law that imposed restrictions on the use of state funds for services relating to abortion. Chief Rehnquist wrote the opinion of the Court for all but Parts II-D and III. Only Justices White and Kennedy joined the opinion in its entirety. Bench opinions are issued by the U.S. Supreme Court immediately after the announcement of a decision. Slip opinions are issued afterwards. Often incorporating corrections, they are the first printings of a decision intended for wide dissemination and review. After that stage the revised slip opinions are added to the latest paperback volume of U.S. Reports. A year later, that volume is printed in its final, authoritative, hardcover form.
