“US supreme court fails to act to block near-total ban that allows private citizens to sue abortion providers…The most radical abortion law in the US has gone into effect, despite legal efforts to block it…A near-total abortion ban in Texas empowers any private citizen to sue an abortion provider who violates the law, opening the floodgates to harassing and frivolous lawsuits from anti-abortion vigilantes that could eventually shutter most clinics in the state…”
I wonder why it is that we never seem to hear about these things in major media, until the deal is sealed. Maybe it’s just me.
Of course, Paxton Smith spoke out…loudly…about the challenge to women’s rights in Texas, in her graduation speech this past season. She’s a young woman who sees the walls closing in around her and was looking to the older adults for guidance. Was anyone listening?
The deal is not sealed just yet…but we can read the tea leaves, see the hand-writing on the wall, and even look at the state-by-state restrictions on rights being put into place with all deliberate speed.
