Remember the Republicans hollering about “activist” judges?
Well, you can bet there’s a new tune on that tomorrow …
A federal appeals court Thursday granted Attorney General Greg Abbott’s request for an emergency stay on a lower court decision that blocked a key provision of Texas’ new abortion law from going into effect earlier this week.
The U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, in a 20-page opinion, said the state’s provision requiring abortion doctors to gain admitting privileges at nearby hospitals does not “impose a substantial obstacle to abortions.”
So they lift the stay and screwed Texas women.
