Supreme Court is Trampling States’ Rights
The Supreme Court has once again ruled to block the rights of individual states, putting women at a greater risk during surgical procedures.
In 2013, legislators in the state of Texas voted for commonsense measures to protect the health of women using abortion facilities by requiring the clinics to be capable of handling complications and risks associated with any surgical procedure.
The law was not designed to stop abortions, but rather to protect the patient undergoing a surgical procedure. Every surgery has a risk and this bill was enacted so that doctors could handle those risks, the same as someone undergoing any other same-day procedure. The Supreme Court has once again overstepped its bounds and is now trampling on states’ rights in order to further its own agenda and once again is legislating rather than adjudicating. I am incredibly disappointed the Court continues to ignore the Tenth Amendment to Constitution of the United States. 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.
