Texas AG Paxton to high court: Block abortion providers from suing to overturn laws

Hoping to make it harder to overturn abortion restrictions, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to block abortion clinics and doctors from challenging state laws on behalf of their patients.

Such legal challenges have successfully overturned a number of restrictions, including a 2013 Texas law that would have left fewer than 10 clinics open in the state, and Paxton believes the situation gives abortion-rights advocates an unfair and unjustified advantage in the legal arena.

“Courts should no longer give abortion providers a free pass,” Paxton told the Supreme Court in a recently filed brief.

Abortion-rights advocates say Paxton’s position is an unreasonable and cruel attempt to avoid judicial review of abortion regulations.

2. They will stop at nothing to destroy abortion access

It's not that they are stupid, as in low IQ. Rather they are ideological true believers. Anti-abortion fighters have become a cult. They think it's what their version of God wants, and it's their guaranteed ticket into heaven.

3. This season of The Handmaid's Tale is frighteningly just like that.
