What's at stake in Texas?
New York Times (Oct. 15, 2015): Abortion at the Supreme Court's Door, by Linda Greenhouse:
In this opinion piece Greenhouses discusses the policy impacts of the Texas TRAP law that is making its way to the Supreme Court and provides a legal analysis of "health-justified" abortion regulations.
Despite a near-universal assumption that the Supreme Court will take up an abortion case in its new term, the general chatter hasn’t included much detail about the specific issue, the stakes or the prospects. This column is an effort to address those questions. The stakes couldn’t be higher, either for women who live in the growing number of states governed by anti-abortion politicians or for the court itself.
