The U.S. supreme Court struck down one of the nation’s toughest restrictions on abortion, a Texas law that women’s groups and our Progressive media continue to claim, “would have forced more than three-quarters of the state’s clinics to shut down.” This is only a part of what the legal battle was over though.
There were two provisions of the law at issue and neither were over the direct closure of these so-called ‘health clinics.’ The first said that doctors had to have local admitting privileges at nearby hospitals; the second said clinics had to upgrade their facilities to hospital-like standards.
But Justice Stephen Breyer, who is so deeply ensconced in the fundamental destruction of the U.S. Constitution and the U.S. as a whole, couldn’t see his way clear to see these two provisions as he demonstrates in his majority opinion:
“We conclude that neither of these provisions offers medical benefits sufficient to justify the burdens upon access that each imposes. Each places a substantial obstacle in the path of women seeking a previability abortion, each constitutes an undue burden on abortion access, and each violates the federal Constitution.”
Where in the U.S. Constitution does it state access to abortion is a right? It doesn’t!
We no longer have a supreme Court, instead it’s a bench filled with a rubber-stamping Progressive legislative body.
