Supreme Court Rejects Abortion Limits in Texas

Finally, some good news after what seems like weeks of insanity.

 The New York Times reports: 
The Supreme Court on Monday struck down parts of a restrictive Texas law that could have reduced the number of abortion clinics in the state to about 10 from what was once a high of roughly 40. The 5-to-3 decision was the court’s most sweeping statement on abortion rights since Planned Parenthood v. Casey in 1992. It applied a skeptical and exacting version of that decision’s “undue burden” standard to find that the restrictions in Texas went too far. The decision on Monday means that similar restrictions in other states are most likely also unconstitutional, and it imperils many other kinds of restrictions on abortion.

YEAH, but I read that many of the clinics were driven out of business while waiting for the law to be overturned. Now the Texas Governor admits the law was simply a tactic to close the clinics and stop abortions. Anyone reading this who plans not to vote for Democrats, including Hillary, in Nov, kindly go to hell, thanks.
