All eyes on Grosuch and Kavanaugh.
Well this is a big one. The left is in full meltdown over this. Some are saying that if the high court decides that it’s constitutional for Louisiana to require all abortionists to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of their clinic, this it’s the end of Roe v. Wade.
I don’t believe that. But it is a big deal because it would signify that it’s ok for states to enact laws with the health and safety of women at their heart. This is NOT a bill that is declaring anything to do with the humanity of the child. At all. This is saying that for the safety of the women, doctors must have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital. Now, this would leave the state with only one abortionist and pro-aborts are saying that this is an end run around Roe. It’s not. But it’s kinda’ like getting Al Capone on not filing taxes.
It’s a bit ironic that those who say they support women are the ones against protecting women and the ones who are labeled anti-woman are the ones trying to protect women. But hey, we know that BIG ABORTION doesn’t give a hoot about women. It’s all about whether their credit cards swipe, amiright?
So here’s the particulars, in 2016, the Supreme court ruled 5-3 that a nearly identical Texas law was unconstitutional. But…and this is a very big BUT… that case was decided before Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh sat themselves down on the bench. In 2016, Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas, and Chief Justice John Roberts, sided for the protection of women over the right of abortion clinics to act as a glorified back alley with check cashing privileges.
So now what happens?
This isn’t THE case but it sure is a good indication whether they’re willing to go to the mattresses on controversial issues that get you uninvited to cocktail parties in D.C. I’m waiting to see.

Well and bravely said.

For comparison's sake, my latest OBGYN only had admission to two hospitals, which were inside of a mile.
….they were actually two hospitals less than a block apart, but still. This isn't an odd requirement.

Yeah… it's pathetic that the pro-death people are now happy that your friendly neighborhood abortionist doesn't even have to be a DOCTOR. Remember the days when they cried, "If abortion becomes illegal, women will have to go to back alley abortionists?" Now, that's codified in law, and they are happy about it. INSANE.
