Supreme Court returns Texas abortion case to appeals court

Source: Yahoo! News

WASHINGTON (AP) ó The Supreme Court has formally returned a lawsuit over Texas' six-week abortion ban to a federal appeals court that has twice allowed the law to stay in effect, rather than to a district judge who sought to block it.

Justice Neil Gorsuch on Thursday signed the courtís order that granted the request of abortion clinics for the court to act speedily. But the clinics wanted the case sent directly to U.S. Judge Robert Pitman, who had previously though briefly blocked enforcement of the Texas abortion ban known as S.B. 8.

When Pitman ordered the law blocked in early October, the appeals court countermanded his order two days later.

Texas has said it will seek to keep the case bottled up at the appeals court for the foreseeable future.

1. This is Beyond Bull Shit!

They don't want to put their fingerprints on this case so they dump it back to the Appeals Court that they know will do their dirty work for them.

2. SCOTUS agrees to expedite issuing its judgment in Texas abortion ruling but remands to Fifth Circuit

Amy Howe Retweeted

NEW: #SCOTUS agrees to expedite issuing its judgment in Texas abortion ruling but remands to Fifth Circuit--not District Court, as the providers had requested.

5. Thanks for nothing 2016

 

This was predictable, & avoidable.
There is no easy, simple fix.

Apologies to women & girls present & future..
RIP~ROE. It took generations to get it, & just 1 unforgiveable day in Nov to wipe it away.

4. IMHO, the SCOTUS is now a RW club full of weak, chicken shit junior judges.

Now, California and NY, do your thing against guns.

7. I'm hoping Phil does it here in NJ

I think with Andrew Zwicker moving from the Assembly to the Senate in Trenton - - and his sarcastic wit -

HE could get this going in Trenton.

Serves Texas right.

6. This is a complete eff you by Gorsuch to the women of Texas.

Gorsuch is quite aware that the 5th Circuit is filled with Trump appointees that the Heritage Foundation dug deep under a bunch of rocks to find. They are rabid forced birthers, pro Republican, and against anything that might smack of equal rights. All hail the dominance and supremacy of the white male. If I gnash my teeth anymore, Iíll be left with stubs and an expensive dental bill!

9. Same here. The loss is catastrophic.

 

Millions of women, young & aging, & all their female healthcare needs are on the line today, from mamograms to birth control, re: Planned Parenthood.

I'm sickened by the casual response now, from those who failed to secure this hard fought & irreplaceble right to simply be female.

11. I'm confused.

I understand that this is a loss for Texas, but doesn't this protect Roe V. Wade from being axed completely?

This seems better than I had hoped.

12. It wasn't much of a loss for Texas

And really doesnít do much to help with Roe. If anything, it hints that there are five votes ready to make significant changes (if not overturn it entirely).
