"This is good news both for the unborn and for the women of Texas, who are now better protected from shoddy abortion providers operating in dangerous conditions.

Good news everyone, Rick Perry has shut down 1/3 of the abortion clinics in Texas and he gets to claim he's doing it out of a real concern for women's health rather than to placate fundie anti-choice nutters.

Can we charge Rick Perry with murder, when women start dying from a lack of health care providers caused by his hand?

What's going to be funny is when the circuit court takes this as a sign that the USSC considers the restriction itself constitutional, but they still have to comply with the standards set by the USSC in Roe v Wade etc regarding access, so we end up with something absurd like the state having to set aside a fund to pay for as many airline/bus tickets as anyone considering an abortion wants or some shiat like that.

I'm sort of looking forward to the inevitable hilarity there, it'll tide me over until this shiat manages to do what almost noting else could and hand Democrats the state government in a couple cycles.  Then the real shadenfreude can start.

A real pope could excommunicate a few supremes, just for a capricious object lesson in extremsim. Like they would even notice.

Getting rid of shoddy abortion providers by shutting down known clinics does not even make sense under their economic model.

Let us assume that the demand for abortion is fairly stable - after all, nothing in this law will stop teaching abstinence-only sexual eduction and nothing in this law will provide an incentive for people to not screw.  All this law will do is cut the supply of safe abortions by a third.

And since the demand is the same, and the supply is now much less, then the Free Market demands that an invisible hand show up to meet the demands of Texan women.  It's just that now that invisible hand will be holding nothing other than a rusty coat hanger.

Abortions are safer than childbirth.

Republican Gov. Rick Perry praised the Supreme Court action."This is good news both for the unborn and for the women of Texas, who are now better protected from shoddy abortion providers operating in dangerous conditions."

Because doing it yourself with a coathanger is much safer for the women of Texas who deserve nothing but the best treatment its caring and concerned males. Oops.

During the trial, officials for one chain of abortion clinics testified that they've tried to obtain admitting privileges for their doctors at 32 hospitals, but so far only 15 accepted applications and none have announced a decision.

Many hospitals with religious affiliations will not allow abortion doctors to work there, while others fear protests if they provide privileges.

Many have requirements that doctors live within a certain radius of the facility, or perform a minimum number of surgeries a year that must be performed in a hospital.



fark you, rick perry, you piece of shiat

I wouldn't actually have a problem with the law if it said, "doctor's performing out-patient surgeries must have admittance privileges to a local hospital" and imposed all other restrictions on all out-patient surgical centers and doctors who perform the surgery.

That would be clearly constitutional but it would also never pass.

Don't liberals say that they want to make abortion safe, legal and rare?  Requiring admitting privileges at a nearby hospital makes abortions safer.  And if that law cuts down on the number of abortions, they become more rare, don't they?  Safe, legal and rare, just what liberals have been calling for.

And now these women will go to back alley abortion providers, so expect more deaths of pregnant women. This is the culture of life that they keep talking about.

It seems to me that if enough Texas women grouped up and decided to to try the "abstinence only" method to educate their husbands/boyfriends/lovers/clients/etc that come election day there would be a whole lot of sexually frustrated Texas men voting to give women whatever rights they wanted.
