This will be short as I have the flu today, but Sarah Weddington had a tweet I followed a few mins ago to this: http://www.dailytoreador.com/...
For those who don't want to read, as we know, the Fifth Circuit Court upheld the laws in Texas restricting abortion access for women.
These restrictions, according to an Associated Press article, caused the closure of 20 clinics across the state of Texas, require abortion doctors to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals and limit the prescription of pills that induce abortions.Senator Wendy David, filibustered the original bill for 11 hours and when push came to shove, Gov. Perry decided to call another special session just to pass these arcane TRAP laws.
Could there be light at the end of the tunnel however? According to the article, at least on Supreme Court justice thinks so:
Stephen Breyer, a Supreme Court justice, said in a news release it is likely this case will end up before the Supreme Court and they will have the final ruling.I'm hoping that our SCOTUS isn't so conservative at this point that it would totally overthrow Roe v. Wade, and if it upholds Roe v. Wade in a decision, that would set back the pro-birthers for a few more decades at least.
“It is a question, I believe,” he said, “that at least four members of this court will wish to consider irrespective of the Fifth Circuit’s ultimate decision.”
