Good news – Supreme Court upholds Texas abortion law November 20, 2013

The US Supreme Court has decided to leave in place a Texas law requiring abortion mill “doctors” to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals. The law will remain in force until the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals makes a determination on the case early next year.

This aspect of the law – along with the ban on abortions after 20 weeks – has resulted in the shut down of dozens of mills statewide. In the DFW area, only three mills remain open out of 10 or so (I forget the exact number).  While these mills are all very busy, they are all, providentially, located adjacent to the three crisis pregnancy centers in the Dallas Diocese.  This concentration allows pro-lifers to focus on just these three mills and keep a constant presence of counselors, individuals praying, and other means to stop women from having their children killed.

Just last week, God be praised, my wife played a part in a save.  A rather affluent couple decided not to get an abortion after speaking with sidewalk counselors and seeing our blessedly large family.

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia issued an opinion today indicating the Supreme Court will not get involved in a case out of Texas that has abortion facilities there appealing a law that has closed numerous abortion clinics that can’t protect women’s health.

In a big victory for pro-life advocates in Texas earlier this month, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals overturned Judge Lee Yeakel of the Western District Court in Austin and restored key portions of a pro-life law in Texas that will ultimately stop abortions and could close abortion clinics. Abortion clinics appealed that decision to the Supreme Court and Justice Scalia issued a ruling today saying the high court will not get involved.

“The underlying legal question — whether the new Texas statute is constitutional — is a difficult question. It is a question, I believe, that at least four members of this court will wish to consider irrespective of the 5th Circuit’s ultimate decision,” Justice Antonin Scalia wrote with Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito concurring. “I would maintain the status quo while the lower courts consider this difficult, sensitive, and controversial legal matter.”

The justices voted 5-4 to leave Texas’ pro-life provisions in place and the four Democrat-appointed pro-abortion justices all voted to overturn the pro-life measure. Justice Stephen Breyer write a dissenting opinion saying he expected the case to return to the Supreme Court.

This is good news.  I’m certain the 5th Circuit will leave the law in place, meaning it will go to the Supreme Court, unless Planned Barrenhood and their allies give up before that (unlikely).

Let’s get out to Routh St, Southwestern, and Planned Murderhood and get some saves!

BTW, I thought you might find this Google review of the Planned Parenthood abortion facility on Greenville Ave in Dallas illuminating:

I visited this clinic once thinking abortion was right for me, after this visit I realized it was not. They were so careless and rude and the thing they cared most about was getting their money. They moved us in groups from room to room, I felt like we were cattle being moved around. In my paperwork it said I would be talking to a counselor about my feelings to make sure I was making the right decision, this so called ” counselor” only ran my debit card. In each of the waiting rooms I just felt so uncomfortable.. There were a couple ladies in there so happy to get their abortion done so they could go party and drink without throwing up due to their current pregnancy.. Really? If these kind of abortion clinics are going to be around I think the PROPER screening needs to be done. Im not against or for abortion, but I am not ok with women having abortions back to back because they want to sleep around. I am a younger mom and am about to have my second child with no regrets, its not that hard it does force you to grow up.. Apparently some people cant handle that. But overall this clinic was disgusting the staff are careless and rude. I hope my story might help change another womans mind.

The other reviews are similar: rude, careless staff, just going through the motions, the sole focus is on the money from abortions.  But how else would one expect people who murder babies all day to act?

I love this post, Tantum. Will you give your wife a hug for me? God bless her, God bless her. I had a save once, go see Another Ordinary Day on my blog. It’s one of the best pieces of writing I ever did, and except for about ten lines of speculation about the mother’s thoughts, it happened just the way I said. God bless tand keep hose sidewalk counselors. I don’t go anymore for a couple of reasons but I do keep the crisis pregnancy centers brochures on me when I go out to bus stops with my TAN books.

Constitutional according to what? If the U.S., then yes it is per the tenth amendment. If according to the Texas constitution then certainly it is. That the supreme court is even considering the case is criminal. It is beyond their jurisdiction. Just shows how far we have fallen as a society supposedly founded upon republican principles. I want out.
