Texas abortion law heads to appeals court, battle over clinic requirements continue

The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals will hear the opposition on the Texas abortion law which was opposed by Wendy Davis and is set to close several abortion clinics across the state.

Texas became one of several states that require abortion doctors to have admitting privileges at local hospitals so women can be treated when they are victimized by botched abortions. The Judge had ruled that the part of the law that requires abortion businesses to follow FDA protocol – this would close many facilities.

The law restricts how, when and where a woman can obtain an abortion in Texas and was the subject of Davis’ nearly 13-hour filibuster that brought her national attention.

Planned Parenthood opposed the law which requires all abortions take place in an ambulatory surgical center, a mandate that could leave only a handful of clinics open in the nation’s second most populous state, but requiring a new minimum standard in case of an emergency.

The justices voted 5-4 to leave Texas’ pro-life provisions in place and the four Democrat-appointed pro-abortion justices all voted to overturn the pro-life measure.

Abortion activists have not challenged that part of the law which prohibits the killing of unborn children who have reached the developmental milestone of being able to feel pain which substantial medical evidence places at 20 weeks.

  1. Scientific laws show that the pro life movement has a choice, they may save innocent born babies or they may choose to let the born life die and instead attempt to save a fetus that may or may not be alive and human. The Law of Charity makes it clear that it is impossible to force birth without killing innocent life.
