A federal district judge has thrown out a key provision of the state’s new law regulating abortion clinics. It seems that health & safety isn’t important where killing the unborn is concerned.
“The law would require abortion facilities in Texas to meet hospital-level operating standards, which supporters say will protect women’s health. Clinics called it a backdoor effort to outlaw abortions…”
The state, of course, will appeal the decision. A previous reversal was overturned and that part of the law upheld. It’s a pity that states have to jump through these legal hoops. But that’s the situation we have: These unelected robed rulers of ours call the shots. And they call this democracy? Very funny.
Meanwhile, the country’s birth and fertility rates (the latter said to be more accurate) have fallen below replacement. The birth measure is below even Russia’s, which is also below replacement, and the declining American fertility measure is now converging with the low Russian one.
And, yes, those rates take into account the illegal Hispanics coming here.
