The Supreme Court this morning agreed to hear three big First Amendment cases, including a challenge to a California law that requires anti-abortion pregnancy counselors to give their patients information about how to obtain an abortion.

The big question: Under Chief Justice John Roberts, the court has upheld very few limits on free speech. These cases will be the first test of whether Justice Neil Gorsuch will change that dynamic.
