    The Supreme Court struck as unconstitutional part of a restrictive Texas statute that threatened to shutter half of the state’s remaining abortion clinics and deny millions of women the right to a safe abortion.

    The ruling in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt represents the most significant victory for abortion rights at the high court since the turn of the century, as states have scrambled to pass and defend similar laws across the country, seeking to chip away at the landmark Roe v. Wade.

    A victory for woman's rights, not a bad thing.

    Well done SCOTUS. I was very concerned with this one.

    Wake up conservatives, you LOST the fight on abortion long ago. Accept it and move on.

    There were articles in the paper about how people would have to drive 800 miles just to get an abortion. Texas politics is so backwards. They are, however trying to get in on the medical marijuana gold rush by legalizing growing it for medical purposes.

    The Supreme Court is so important, and the Senate's failure to even hold hearings means that there will be 8 justices through at least most of their next term. A new justice won't be confirmed at least until February or March, when most arguments will be over.

    it's like the dark ages in some places, the reality is, I can say with very little doubt, that every person who opposes abortion, has a family member or close friend who has had an abortion or gotten someone pregnant who has had one, they just don't know it, or are in denial

    Don't worry. Once Trump is elected he can pack the Supreme Court with cuckservatives and abortion will finally be illegal

    There is an entire industry of conservative "think tanks" and lobbyists who write state legislation to restrict abortion rights in the most creative ways possible

    Upheld Obama care, legalized gay marriage, upheld a woman's right to choose.

    Not bad for the evil right wing Supreme Court I always here about from leftists.

    i dont feel this decision has anything to do with left/right.


    one could even argue that technically, the law regulated businesses more which is liberal

    It's going to just get worse. Because of the tea party movement there's very few mainstream or moderate conservatives in congress and state office. Just a lot of far right social activists telling us how to live
