By now, many of you have heard the news that a Federal Judge has blocked an important part of Texas’ new abortion law—the one made famous by Wendy Davis’ filibuster last summer. In particular, the judge blocked the part requiring abortion doctors to have admitting privileges in a local hospital.
Almost as soon as the decision was released, the Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott vowed to appeal the ruling. General Abbott also says that he sees the case going all the way to the Supreme Court.
If this case does go all the way, that’s when things could get interesting. Will the Supreme Court revisit any of the major holdings of Roe v. Wade? If it does, the high court’s ruling could have implications nationwide.
You can be sure that this isn’t over yet and that we’ll be watching this one closely.
