Aborted justice

Federal judge halts key part of Texas abortion law

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — A federal judge Friday threw out new Texas abortion restrictions that would have effectively closed more than a dozen clinics statewide in a victory for opponents of tough new anti-abortion laws sweeping across the U.S.

U.S. District Judge Lee Yeakel sided with clinics that sued over one of the most disputed measures of a sweeping anti-abortion bill signed by Republican Gov. Rick Perry in 2013. The ruling stops new clinic requirements that would have left seven abortion facilities in Texas come Monday, when the law was set to take effect.

The ruling blocks a portion of the that law would have required abortion facilities in Texas to meet hospital-level operating standards, which supporters say will protect women’s health. But Yeakel concluded the intent was only to “close existing licensed abortion clinics.”

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, a Republican who is the favorite to become governor next year, vowed to seek an immediate appeal to try to preserve the new clinic rules. Clinics called the measures a backdoor effort to outlaw abortions, which has been a constitutional right since the Roe v. Wade ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1973.

The death culture will be happy about that. It seems all it takes is an activist judge. I don’t know where in law it says there must be an abortion provider X distance away? They don’t want any regulations or restrictions on abortion.

    Bull,

    It seems there is always some liberal judge out there messing things up. But, the Grand Mufti has the courts loaded down with leftists so it’s no surprise. I hate hearing this kind of thing though. More murdered babies.

      Pepp, they do have their advocates for PP out there, so it shouldn’t surprise us. Just when they try to do something positive, they throw a wrench into it.

        Bull, since abortion is their god they will do anything to keep it alive and kicking. Blast that Roe vs Wade decision. What an injustice that was.
