Source: Washington Post

The nationís most restrictive abortion law remains in place for now, after a federal appeals court on Thursday sided with the state of Texas.

In a brief 2-1 order, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit refused the Justice Departmentís request to reinstate an earlier court ruling that had blocked enforcement of the Texas law, which bars the procedure as early as six weeks into pregnancy and makes no exceptions for rape or incest.

The brief order, which is expected to be appealed the Supreme Court, was backed by Judges James C. Ho, a nominee of Donald Trump, and Catharina Haynes, a nominee of George W. Bush.

The order noted the dissent of Judge Carl E. Stewart, a nominee of President Bill Clinton.

3. Can't really blame the DOJ.

The decision was already made before a word was spoken at the hearing.

6. Our Founding Fathers Failed To Anticipate This

And so there are no safe guards against a corrupt court system. The problem seemed to start under Reagan and his appointment of Scalia to the court. It has really exploded in the era of dark money fostered by the arrival of John Roberts and Citizens United decision where the floodgates of dark money were opened.
