While we all obsess over the latest incident of Trump calling someone a c-word or telling Marco Rubio he's a pussy a very important case is before the Supreme Court today that will affect all of our lives for the next 50 years. Whole Women's Health v. Hellerstedt is a case currently before the 8 person short handed Supreme Ct. In this case a Texas State Statute which basically bans abortion by putting up onerous health code violations on abortion clinics making it impossible for them to function is reviewed for it's legality. Issue: Can states essentially ban abortion by over regulating it? If the short handed Supreme Ct is split 4-4 the ruling by the 5th circuit will stand. The 5th circuit held that the statute is legal and Texas can get around Roe v. Wade and ban abortion.
