The Supreme Court of the United States struck down a set of Texas restrictions aimed at improving standards in abortion clinics, so that they would be safer for patients.
I have a couple of off-the-cuff comments on this. One is that if Texas wants tight restrictions on abortion they should be allowed to have them. Where states are told by a far-away federal court what they can and can’t do, it means the Supreme Court is overriding the will of the people. This is a problem.
Second, abortion providers in the USA make a lot of money. So the picture from the National Post is worth a thousand words–these women own abortion clinics and their jobs would have gotten a lot more expensive if they needed to comply with the regulations. They are, as they walk down the steps of the Supreme Court, cheering for the money they will make.
Thirdly, whether abortion is “safer” than childbirth is a moot point. Since there is little to no justification for killing innocents, but there is always justification for saving life, then more properly, one should consider that in abortions a woman is going into surgery for reasons that could have been dealt with in a less invasive manner.
