Although the nation’s highest court found a previously unknown, deeply hidden “right of privacy” in the U.S. Constitution over four decades ago to kill unborn babies who can’t survive outside the womb, states have exercised their power to regulate this awful procedure.
Last month, a federal court upheld a law in Texas that bans abortions after 20 weeks, restricts medically induced abortions, and requires abortionists to have admitting privileges to a nearby hospital and abortion mills to meet the same requirements as ambulatory surgical centers.
Ten abortion clinics would have closed because of the law, but the U.S. Supreme Court ruled they could remain open while it considers an appeal.
The court might decide to hear arguments in what’s being called the “biggest abortion case at the Supreme Court in nearly 25 years.”
While Texas has fought to show abortion is not in the best interest of citizens — working at the state-level to enact pro-life legislation and defunding abortion giant Planned Parenthood —the U.S. Supreme Court is preventing Texas from forsaking the era of Roe to build a culture of life. The Court may ultimately decide to further define the main phrase used in the 1992 Planned Parenthood v.
