SCOTUS Messed With Texas

Conservatives should rejoice at the SCOTUS ruling telling Texas it has over regulated abortion clinics. The ruling gets government out of people’s lives — but conservatives won’t because many conservatives are religiously driven, not smaller government conservatives.
SCOTUS said that there is a right to have an abortion, and that Texas had unnecessarily put roadblocks to that right. Now you can argue that it shouldn’t be a right, but once the Supremes declare it a right, you may not impede that right!

Texas, my home state, put a fig leaf of medical necessity over their regulations, but that fig leaf was so transparent it could be Saran Wrap!

I argue that abortion should be left up to the states because it is not in the Constitution, and therefore the Tenth Amendment applies. All laws should be so short and understandable: 

“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.”

That is about as clear as anything, but it is continually ignored by SCOTUS. In Roe v Wade, SCOTUS invented a right to privacy, which is not in the Constitution, and then based a right to an abortion on the invented right to privacy.

But so long as there IS a right to an abortion, Texas cannot block it by flimsy subterfuge. They tried…they failed.
