Decision outsources death of legal abortions


The U.S. Supreme Court issuing an unsigned order refusing to block a Texas abortion ban while it faces a legal challenge stunned many and marked a significant moment in the United States’ history of reproductive rights.

A sharply divided Supreme Court said it will not block a new Texas law that deputizes any Texan to enforce a six-week ban on abortions. Five justices: Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett, explained in a brief, unsigned majority opinion that the abortion advocates asking for an emergency stay “raised serious questions regarding the constitutionality of the Texas law at issue,” but they were unable to untangle the “complex and novel antecedent procedural questions” raised by the law. Wow!

In every case the Supreme Court agrees to hear, aren’t there complex and novel antecedent procedural questions raised by the law which it must be able to untangle?
