The state of Texas is more than a physical entity, it is also a state of mind. Governor Rick Perry, among the great thinkers in our society, believes the “greatest threats to America” are caused by bans on guns and women who insist on having an abortion. Texas has passed one law after another to impede the right of women to have an abortion. Thank God,the US Supreme Court placed a hold on the latest attack on women, the 2013 anti-which closed all but a few abortion clinics in Texas. The law requires doctors working in an abortion clinic to have access to a hospital. Of course, many hospitals fear being connected with abortion so they block doctors from gaining access to the hospital.
The new ruling will enable about 2o of the existing 30 odd abortion facilities to remain open. Texas has ben attempting an end run against the Roe decision which allows abortion,. The government of Texas simply blocks access to abortion facilities, as part of its plan to end abortion in the state. The most remarkable aspect of this endeavor is lack of anger on the part of women to have their rights taken away. Vote against Republicans to vote for women rights!
