The back alley becomes Main Street
By Dr. Robert Owens
Abortion mills are not required to meet health standards as high as veterinary clinics yet when Texas passes a law requiring them to meet minimum standards for any health establishment the Supreme Corruption rules this is too much.
It is the opinion of the Legalist Illuminati that we have progressed past anything as quaint as constitutional rights, such as the right to life without which the right to liberty and the pursuit of happiness doesn't have any meaning. Then again according to the Apex of the Esquire Class the Constitution always and only means what the Supremes say it means.
According to Richard A. Posner who is a judge, U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit, and a senior lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School "I see absolutely no value to a judge of spending decades, years, months, weeks, day, hours, minutes, or seconds studying the Constitution, the history of its enactment, its amendments, and its implementation (across the centuries—well, just a little more than two centuries, and of course less for many of the amendments). Eighteenth-century guys, however smart, could not foresee the culture, technology, etc., of the 21st century. Which means that the original Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the post–Civil War amendments (including the 14th), do not speak to today. David Strauss is right: The Supreme Court treats the Constitution like it is authorizing the court to create a common law of constitutional law, based on current concerns, not what those 18th-century guys were worrying about. In short, let's not let the dead bury the living."
The Legion of Doom that makes up the modern woman's movement has put all its eggs in the abortion basket. This is their litmus test. This is their un-holy grail filled with the blood of the martyrs. Refuse to drink and you shall be cast outside the pail of the liberal establishment, its media propaganda machine, and its crony capitalist K-Street funding cabal. All Progressive politicos are required to kiss the ring and bow before the Rider of the Pale Horse.
What was so onerous about the Texas law? What undue burden did it use to oppress women and deny them of their rights? The rules required doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals and forced clinics to meet hospital-like standards for outpatient surgery. All this disguised as concern for women's health. Why anyone can see that requiring more of abortionists than was once required of their back alley ancestors was obviously a stratagem designed to subjugate women and deprive them of their constitutionally protected right to undergo a serious medical procedure with no clinical or sanitary requirements whatsoever.
Other blatant violations of women's rights imposed by the right wing hate mongers include limits on when in a pregnancy abortions may be performed and the use of drugs that induce abortions without surgical intervention. After our Supreme Court of Last Resort invoked their arbitrary power to void the laws of Texas and numerous other states Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said the law "was an effort to improve minimum safety standards and ensure capable care for Texas women. It's exceedingly unfortunate that the court has taken the ability to protect women's health out of the hands of Texas citizens and their duly elected representatives."
Some of the Black Robed Rulers of our land made statements concerning this case.
Justice Ginsburg, the former lead attorney for Planned Parenthood the nation's largest chain of abortion mills, wrote a short opinion noting that laws like Texas' "that do little or nothing for health, but rather strew impediments to abortion, cannot survive judicial inspection" under the court's earlier abortion-rights decisions. She pointed specifically to Roe v. Wade in 1973 and Planned Parenthood v. Casey in 1992.
Justice Thomas wrote that the decision "Exemplifies the court's troubling tendency to bend the rules when any effort to limit abortion, or even to speak in opposition to abortion, is at issue."
Justice Alito, reading a summary of his dissent in court, said "The clinics should have lost on technical, procedural grounds." Alito also said "The court was adopting a rule of, if at first you don't succeed, sue, sue and sue again."
Abortion providers said the rules would have cut the number of abortion clinics in Texas to fewer than 10 if they had been allowed to take full effect. In other words less than 10 were willing to have doctors who met the standards for having admitting privileges at local hospitals or to meet hospital-like standards for outpatient surgery.
Nancy Northup, president of the Center for Reproductive Rights, which represented the clinics, said, "The Supreme Court sent a loud and clear message that politicians cannot use deceptive means to shut down abortion clinics."
President Barack Obama praised the decision, saying, "We remain strongly committed to the protection of women's health, including protecting a woman's access to safe, affordable health care and her right to determine her own future."
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton called the outcome "A victory for women in Texas and across America."
The only losers anyone can see are the women who are lulled into thinking they are undergoing a safe procedure in a sanitary medical environment. When in fact they are the subjects of unregulated abortionists in uninspected and often unsanitary abortion mills where millions of children die and millions of dollars are made for the industry of death that has decimated entire generations of Americans. Not only do all the babies die but so do some of the women. Of course you will never hear that from the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media because today the back alley has become Main Street, and we can't allow these right wing conspiracy nuts to interfere with the right to kill babies. That would violate the Constitution. Maybe it is a suicide pact after all.
