  •  I think there have been some injunctions (6+ / 0-)

    I can't remember which state, and haven't had enough coffee to look it up, but I think in some states there have been temporary halting to the enactment of some of these new regulations.  I agree that this is a back door tactic to eliminate this right.  It may also be a back door way to eventually push the topic all the way back up for a re-ruling by the supreme court.  Since this is happening in multiple states, and since governors are openly admitting that they're doing it to shut abortion down, then maybe there is a role for a federal intervention.

      composed would reverse Roe v. Wade and that is a part of this thing.

      Of particular interest though is the unequal treatment of this particular type of clinic. One of the arguments here in Virginia was that if the same "safety" requirements were placed on dental and medical outpatient clinics engaged in procedures of similar medical risks there would be outrage in the entire medical community. I don't believe that equal protection aspect has been fully exploited.
