    Supreme Court Blocks Key Parts of Texas Abortion Law

    The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday blocked key parts of a 2013 law in Texas that had closed all but eight facilities providing abortions in America's second most-populous state.

    In an unsigned order, the justices sided with abortion rights advocates and health care providers in suspending an Oct. 2 ruling by a panel of the New Orleans-based U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals that Texas could immediately apply a rule making abortion clinics statewide spend millions of dollars on hospital-level upgrades.
    With this decision, the Supreme Court has taken the side of rationalism over religion. But it's not over yet. The Supremes are going to take up the case. It is my bet that these horrific laws with be knocked down for good. In the end, these laws were not passed to protect the health of the woman, as claimed, but were passed in order to foist their religious beliefs on others.

    Good news. The law wasn't ever about to make abortions safer, it was meant to just make them harder to get out of spite.

    When you push them on the subject, the pro-life folks tend to readily admit this.
