AUSTIN, Texas A federal appeals court on Thursday issued a ruling reinstating most of Texas' tough new abortion restrictions.

A panel of judges at the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals issued the ruling a day after District Judge Lee Yeakel said one provision serves no medical purpose.

>> Doctors testifying before the court had said such women would be harmed if the protocol were enforced.

Well then, don’t put the woman’s life at risk by killing the inner human. Not difficult.

FINALLY the politicians are killing abortion using death by 1000 cuts, a strategy I have been pushing for decades.

This is exactly how the left got most of their agenda passed.

So, abortuaries have to comply to the safety standards that ambulatory surgical centers must comply to... and somehow, that “restricts” a woman from having an abortion.

We need a news organization that doesn’t repeat leftist talking points. Requirements for abortuaries to meet basic safety standards (for their clients, anyway, since nothing makes them safe for babies) are *not* restrictions.

We are going to stop killing babies and those that do are going to start getting punished, under law, real bad.

If I’m not mistaken, Roe v Wade limited Abortion based on the Viability of the Fetus.

If correct, I guess the overall theme of Privacy ends when the Child can live outside the Womb.

Again, I’m not sure if that is outlined in the Ruling, but I know I read it somewhere, maybe even here on FR.

And yes, I know Google is my friend, if I work for the NSA.

I think you're right.

My non-google thoughts are that the whole theme of privacy is just another case of judicial legislation. It's not in the Constitution and is no more legitimate than Roberts rewriting of ObamaCare.

Abortion doctors really are at the bottom of healthcare professionals.
Having hospital priveldges are seen as a plus for all doctors except abortion doctors.

A woman may have a manufactured right to privacy, but the doctor doesn’t. The abortion clinics are conducting commerce and can be regulated.

Yes and, the Left has built their apparatus on interconnected tenets of dogma, and properly applied pressure can have dramatic effects far beyond the immediately visible. Things like limiting abortion, busting public unions, voter ID, etc.

I don't have time to outline all abortion jurisprudence, but you should read Planned Parenthood vs. Casey (1992).
It's the sad one where in the original conference the vote was 4-4 to overrule Roe. Justice Kennedy was apparently hoping to get O’Connor to join him so it would be 6-3.
When she wouldn't he eventually caved and sent a note to Blackmun saying he had news that Blackmun would find welcoming. Blackmun then smiled and wrote out a short note saying “Roe sound”.
Rehnquist was to write the majority opinion and then received the news that his opinion would be the minority.
Apparently Scalia went over to Kennedy's house the night before the opinion was handed down for one last appeal.
The point of this is that Kennedy is a bastard, and that Roe was essentially modified by PP v. Casey. That's where they got the undue burden test.
The libs had to concede a few points regarding the right of states to regulate abortion just to get his vote.
To see how that worked out take a look at Stenberg v. Carhart (2000) where Kennedy dissented in the 5-4 ruling which struck down Nebraska's ban on partial birth abortion.
The majority used Kennedy's opinion in Casey to support their decision and an incensed Kennedy wrote the dissent.
I believe Scalia wrote a separate dissent basically saying to Kennedy “I told you so dumb ass, what did you expect?”
Since then the federal ban on partial birth abortion was upheld 5-4 after O’Connor was replaced with Alito.
Hope the history lesson wasn't too boring FRiend.

The original vote was 5-4 to overrule Roe. That 4-4 was a typo.

Yep, another made up ruling.

The Supreme Court bends itself into a Pretzel to make Liberal Wet Dreams a reality.

“Doctors testifying before the court had said such women would be harmed if the protocol were enforced.”

How can a doctor, who performs surgery or provides any kind of medical care, get malpractice insurance if they can not get privileges at a hospital? In short, I’m shocked that any sane person would wish to go to a doctor who has no privileges at a hospital.

Are women that desperate to have an abortion? I think not. It’s clearly the multi billion dollar industry and lobby that it generates who wish it to be that way.
