ALERT: Supreme Court Makes Terrifying Ruling

In a 5-3 vote, the Supreme Court has just voted in favor of abortion rights in a case that was born to challenge the anti-abortion law that had been in existence in Texas. It is a sad day for those there that have a moral compass telling them to protect life. Because…it’s the right thing to do. Period.

From Talking Points Memo:

“We conclude that neither of these provisions offers medical benefits sufficient to justify the burdens upon access that each imposes,” Breyer wrote. He said that the restrictions placed “a substantial obstacle in the path of women seeking a previability abortion,” amounted to an undue burden on abortion access,” and were violations of the U.S. Constitution. He was joined by Justices Anthony Kennedy, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan.

Ginsburg wrote an additional opinion concurring with the majority. Justice Samuel Alito wrote a dissenting opinion, joined by Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Clarence Thomas, who also wrote his own dissent.

The decision is a major victory for abortion rights advocates, who had argued the laws were not meant to protect women’s health, as the state claimed, but rather sought to limit abortion access. Other states have passed laws similar to Texas’ and their legality is now in question thanks to Monday’s ruling.

The case, Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt, was brought by abortion providers in Texas who challenged the omnibus abortion bill the state passed in 2013. It required that clinics maintain facilities akin to mini-hospitals and mandated providers attain a special relationship with local hospitals. Only some of those provisions were part of the Supreme Court challenge, but the case was seen as an opportunity for the court to clarify at what point a restriction on abortions becomes a significant burden on a woman’s access to the procedure.

There is going to be blood on their hands and one day, they will have to answer for it. How the literal “life” of another person became the choice of another…is beyond me. Murderers.
