    Not all our judges are honorable.

    There is no express right provided specifically for abortion in the US Constitution, but there is in Roe v. Wade, so that provides an inferred constitutional right. However, in the language of Roe v. Wade , the right is not granted absolutely. And there is nothing proscribing the regulation of abortion according to medical standards Roe v. Wade. So this is quite a radical interpretation of Roe v. Wade in itself, to say nothing of the US Constitution.

    While the Federal Judge's decision appears to abide to solid Constitutional holdings by the U.S. Supreme Court, the public and scholarly debate regarding abortion appears to be skimming over the most morally relevant issue about the fundamental human rights of being a person. Until serious discussion upon which abortion centers, there can never be any significant breakthrough on reaching any semblance of agreement on this matter.

    Purely political. Else, why make this ruling 48 hours before the new laws take effect? How can one judge override the votes of a state that put this man into office? There are no amendments nor articles that give people the right to kill children, so how can these new statutes be deemed unconstitutional? If abortion is deemed "healthcare" by the pathological left, then an abortion clinic is akin to an urgent care clinic. The difference is, real doctors with admitting privileges to hospitals work at urgent care.

    The bottom line? There's a reason why liberals want free or cheap abortions available to minorities and those in dire financial straits: Liberals have pure contempt, borderline hate for those people. Why else would they want abortions so freely accessible? Maybe PBS will air a touching story about the near closing of Texas back-alley abortion clinics too?
