Our unelected robed rulers, otherwise known as the Supremes, have decided that Texas can’t regulate abortion to its satisfaction within its own borders.
“…the Supreme Court,” wrote the Austin daily, “said two of the Texas rules — requiring abortions to be performed in hospitallike surgical centers and doctors to have admitting privileges in nearby hospitals — combined to erect an improper barrier for women seeking an abortion and wipred [sic] out a 2013 law on the subject.”
Enforcement of the law already had closed a third of Texas abortion clinics, leaving 19 in business. Another 10 which also could not meet the terms were set to close, leaving none west of San Antonio, until the Supremes aborted the law.
The Legislature undoubtedly will start trying in January to find other ways to make abortion mills safer and abortionists more professional. Neither of which the champions of abortion seem to care about. Fortunately Texas hasn’t had a scumbag like West Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Goshnell yet, but it could be only a matter of time.
