Texas bans abortion because the Supreme Court does nothing
TThis is one of the main reasons many of us had such an overwhelming feeling when Donald Trump was elected, at a time when he could probably install at least one Supreme Court justice. It turned out that you installed Three.
Donald Trump installed three Supreme Court justices. Let that sink in.
And now the right-wing Supreme Court is doing what it was prepared to do: overturn the Roe v. Wade. Starting with refusing to stop an absolutely insane Texas law that actually gives a reward to people who perform abortions: Texas Abortion Ban: What It Means and What Happens Next.
With the mother of the United States Supreme Court, a new law went into effect in Texas that bans abortions after approximately six weeks of pregnancy. That is long before many women know they are pregnant.
The law allows private citizens to sue abortion providers and anyone else who helps a woman obtain an abortion, including those who take a woman to a clinic or provide financial assistance to obtain an abortion. Private citizens wearing these suits no need to show any connection to those who are suing.
The law makes no exceptions for cases of rape or incest.
