"Today's decision affirms our right to protect both the unborn and the health of the women of Texas. We will continue doing everything we can to protect a culture of life in our state," [Perry] said in a statement.

He then went on to sign the death warrants for fifteen retards and 49 n*ggers on death row because f*ck those guys anyway.

They're protecting the health of women by preventing them from getting health care.

And cut the SNAP program and also fark early education and let's not forget being obstructionist to the PPACA so that low income, pregnant women can get affordable prenatal care while also biatching & moaning about insurance companies being required to provide birth control.

I hate abortion, but outlawing it is NOT the way to reduce it, and even beyond that, it's not even any of my business if someone else gets one. I respect every woman's ability to make that decision for herself. I realize that this is a CRAZY thing to believe, but only because I live in Texas, where everything is backwards.

Check out Livermore. Just outside of silicon valley, has its own nuclear research lab, and a fantastic rodeo with real cowboys. One "y'all" and you'd be the center of attention.

How is "abortion by a doctor who can't get you into a hospital if he farks up" a basic right?  Or even just plain ol' abortion, for that matter?

The 14th Amendment is still in place, correct? And Texas is still a US state, therefore, we are covered by the US Constitution. See: Roe v. Wade.

That's the thing, the law basically made it ok for hospitals to turn certain people away with the whole admission privileges thing. As the court found there's no rational basis for the law going that far.

You don't need admitting privileges to get a patient into a hospital.  You can call an ambulance service and have them transferred independently. Its need is overblown.

Further, hospitals are free to refuse admitting privileges to an outside doctor for any reason.  Many won't provide privileges unless you admit x number of patients per month.  That's why a lot of other outside surgical doctors, like plastic surgeons, periodontists, endodontists, dermatologists and the like don't have admitting privileges, either. They can refuse admitting privileges if you are from out of state, as if often the case for abortion doctors in deeply red states.  Lastly, they can also refuse you just because they just don't like you.  In the south, they may be because they are opposed to abortion, or because they're opposed to anti-abortion zealots firebombing their hospitals.

And abortion is a right because the SCOTUS said it was a right.  That's kinda how the law works in this country.

Yes, but at best only 3 or 4 of them were actually innocent.

Nod.  The admitting requirement would be a lot different if ALL doctors that performed surgery outside of a hospital had to have privileges, and if hospitals couldn't refuse admitting privileges to any licensed doctor in good standing with the state.

Of course, the Catholic hospitals would have a fit over that second part.  And in some states, the majority of hospitals are owned by religious institutions.  If the SCOTUS upheld their right to refuse admittance, you could make the state abortion free by having religious institutions buy up all the hospitals.

I'm sure certain "Pro-Choice" Farkers will be along to say that this law is really about "concern" for these poor women.

"While we acknowledge that Planned Parenthood has also made a strong showing that their interests would be harmed by staying the injunction, given the State's likely success on the merits, this is not enough, standing alone, to outweigh the other factors,"This has nothing to do with planned parenthood's "interest"

Is this the part where the government gets between a patient and her doctor?  I was told that was bad, and it must be stopped even it that means shutting down the government and crashing the world's economy.

What if the entire rest of the US seceded from the Union?  Texas can keep the name, it would be worth it.

I trust the OBGYN professionals to decide that an abortion is a safe out-patient procedure with risks on par with vasectomies or wisdom teeth extractions.  For the Texas Leg to butt in and throw their considerable lack of expertise around and tell doctors how to do their job, then dress it up as concern for women's health, is mindbogglingly retarded.

If somebody would figure out how to extract petroleum from fetuses, Texas would be the first state to subsidize abortions.

I know, many are being assaulted by the simple majority.
The only good news is that this is unconstitutional and SCOTUS will overturn it.

I thought Texas was close to parity, maybe a little over, maybe a little less, but nowhere near the other welfare states!!

Figures I found show we pay 60 billion less than we receive. Still nowhere near as much as MS or AL but 60 billion isn't exactly pocket change.
