Yet again, pregnant people in TX are left to decipher another judicial decision to see if anything resembling the constitutional right to abortion care is available to them. And we thought the role of the judiciary was to protect constitutional rights. . . #CourtsMatter
Now: Texas's 6-week abortion ban SB 8 will remain in effect for now – the 5th Circuit has granted a longer-term stay that will keep a district court injunction paused while Texas pursues its appeal. The order is 2-1 with Judge Carl Stewart dissenting.

In today's SCOTUS case, Cameron v. EMW Surgical Center, KY's AG wants to join a suit after 2 courts held KY's abortion ban unconstitutional. Conservatives are willing to use every procedural trick in the book to ban abortion & are asking SCOTUS for a permission slip.
