    U.S. District Judge Lee Yeakel decided Monday that the regulations requiring abortion doctors to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital impeded on the rights of physicians to do what they judge is best for their patients and would unreasonably limit a woman's access to state abortion clinics.

    "The admitting-privileges provision of House Bill 2 does not bear a rational relationship to the legitimate right of the state in preserving and promoting fetal life or a woman's health and, in any event, places a substantial obstacle in the path of a woman seeking an abortion of a nonviable fetus and is thus an undue burden to her," Yeakel wrote in his decision.

    It will be overturned by the SCOTUS because it is in violation of Roe v Wade. The notoriously conservative 5th circuit's action is wrong, legally and morally.

    Besides, that all just fuels the blue fire taking root in Texas.

    Elections have consequences. This would not have happened had John Kerry been elected in 2004 (as some of us understood back in 2004). If Sandra Day O'Connor was still on the Court, a lot of these decisions would have gone the other way - but after she retired Bush replaced her with the much-more-conservative Samuel Alito.
