Fark the current SC.

Still terrible. But I suspect this is to avoid having Roe v. Wade II: Electric Boogaloo on the docket.

And with that, it is now illegal to get an Abortion in the US

"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," Perry said.

How dare doctors give someone a couple of pills without the ability to admit them to a hospital.

I total agree here. The incidental effect will be absolutely tiny. Why would we care so much about women having access to healthcare like pap smears and mammograms? Driving 200+ miles round trip isn't THAT big of a deal... especially if you live in Texas. Heck, that's like my commute everyday. If I can drive to an abortion clinic whenever I want, what's the upset all about?!

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.

oh yeah, totally incidental
