Supreme court demonstrates there is no law.

Once again.  The court voted 5-3 to strike down Texas legislation that would require abortion clinics to operate under the same rules as surgical clinics, since they… perform surgery.

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.

and

HB 2 did lead to abortion clinics closing in Texas, and “[t]hose closures meant fewer doctors, longer waiting times, and increased crowding.”

It’s a shame this same court didn’t decide the Affordable Care Act.  Under these standards, it never would have passed.
