Supreme Court refuses to block Texas abortion restrictions
foxnews.com ^ | 11/19/13 | Shannon Bream

Posted on 11/19/2013 3:28:52 PM PST by ColdOne

DEVELOPING: The U.S. Supreme Court has declined to block controversial Texas abortion restrictions that have been called some of the strictest in the country.

The court by a 5-4 vote denied a request by Planned Parenthood to block a ruling by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, which allows key parts of the Texas abortion law to stay in effect while the case plays out.

This is a victory for the rights of unborn Americans. It is unbelievable that unborn Americans have been murdered by the millions and the absence of these people in our population is supposedly being made up by colonists from Mexico.

It's not hard to guess who were the four imbeciles that wanted to block the law from taking affect. The liberal cretins love "Choice" (only when it's the choice to abort)

Don't worry if the full case goes to SCOTUS, Roberts will somehow figure out how baby murder is a tax and therefore compulsory. /s

Now that I've got the snarky comment out of the way: Thank God the little ones got a reprieve. I dream of the day this barbaric practice is abolished outright and its murderous practitioners hung from the neck until dead.

Texas is requiring abortionists, performing an invasive medical procedure, follow the same rules as any other doctor performing an invasive medical procedure. They are also preventing women from killing developed babies in their wombs. In the state of Texas there is nothing controversial about either of these policies.

The Court's decision is here.

Short version: Roberts and Kennedy voted to deny a stay, but didn't write any opinion. Scalia, Thomas and Alito also voted to deny a stay (creating the 5-4 majority), and joined in an opinion written by Scalia (which basically says that a lower court's decision shouldn't be stayed unless it is clearly and obviously wrong). Breyer wrote a dissenting opinion, which was joined by Ginsburg, Sotomayor and Kagan.

Gee what were the Las Vegas odds on another 5-4 decision?

Even though I agree with the court’s decision, they continue to prove my point that they are nothing but 9 political hacks who make most of their decisions based on the political winds and if they happen to be in sync with the Constitution so much the better.

These are supposed to be the best Constitutional minds in the country and they ALMOST always create a 5-4 decision.

Yes, the corruption of our government is so great even the USSC is part of the ruling elite mafia.

If these servants with such “brilliant minds” (the politicians and media tell us they are) can only be 55% sure of our highest laws why the hell should any citizen be expected to know, understand, and follow the hundreds of thousands of laws puked out by governments at all levels?

A great day in America for babies. The killing of the innocent has got to stop. They were conceived through "no fault of their own". They shouldn't be murdered for that. Barry and his 'RATS won't deport illegal "DREAMERS" who are in the country "through no fault of their own." Why should we murder babies for something they had no say in?

FURATS!

Roberts afraid to write an opinion?

It's unusual to see any opinions on a stay application, because the Court hasn't heard the case yet. Typically, you have a one sentence order that says "The application for a stay is denied." The way I read this is that the four liberals wrote an opinion dissenting from the denial, so Scalia felt the need to answer them, and Roberts didn't want to seem to be involved in the in-fighting.

Have you seen the new mosque close to Sugar Land? If you are headed west on the Beltway, it’s on the north feeder road just before you get to the 59 north/south interchange from the Beltway. Was by there last Friday and looks like it’s almost finished. Not sure if that area is in Missouri City or Houston.

Seems like we are always fighting something.

It is odd a mosque. Just thinking about what I saw in Green Bay. Because the I-43 Bridge is shut down because of a sinking pillar. I had to take Velp avenue. I was shocked to see the Islamic Society of Northeastern Wisconsin. Up here in the Upper Peninsula of MI, moslems and the like are hard to find. when the iron mines started to shut down in the 1950s through 1970s the Jewish synagogue was closed in Iron River. the Iron mines closed and the jewish population left. the synagogue was converted into a catholic church eventually the church closed and a now it is non denominational church of 50 people.

Lurking Libertarian’s brief summary was entirely correct as far as it went, but it omitted the thorough evisceration Scalia performed upon Breyer. It’s well worth reading. Breyer’s dissenting opinion is only five or six pages, and I read it first in order to have it in mind when reading Scalia’s even shorter opinion. Complete beat-down.
