5th Cir. Allows Abortion Restrictions to take Effect

The 5th Cir. is one of the worse and most conservative courts in the country. The 5th Cir. just stayed the ruling of the Federal judge who blocked the effectiveness of the new Texas anti-Abortion law http://www.chron.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/Appeals-court-grants-stay-on-abortion-ruling-4944605.php?cmpid=hpbn

AUSTIN - 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 do not "impose a substantial obstacle to abortions."

In a statement, Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, said the court fight will continue.

"This restriction clearly violates Texas women's constitutional rights by drastically reducing access to safe and legal abortion statewide," she said in a statement. "If Texans showed America one thing during the historic protests against this law this summer, we demonstrated that Texans value women's health - and that is why we will take every step we can to protect the health of Texas women in the wake of this ruling."


I wonder who was on this panel. Edith Jones is the head judge of the 5th Cir. and she is a racist.
