Breaking re:

The bill was ruled to interfere with doctor's rights to give good advice to their patients and unreasonably burden a woman seeking an abortion.

These "trap laws," for those of you who don't know, were designed to put clinics out of business, as an end-run around Roe vs. Wade.

This is a final decision, which means the law will not go into effect, period - unless a higher court considers an appeal and reverses the ruling. In the meantime, Texas clinics are safe.

I'm very grateful for this decision! For those of who you live in Texas (or just care about people living in the 2nd largest state), please sign up at Wendy Davis's site:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
