US Supreme Court places temporary hold on part of Texas abortion bill

    ADF Media: “Texans have the freedom to prioritize women’s health and safety over the bottom line of abortionists, and this good law affirms that. The Supreme Court’s decision only temporarily and partially prevents the Texas law from going into effect while the 5th Circuit finishes hearing the case. While that is disappointing, it should cause no great alarm. The state’s requirement against cut-and-run abortionists remains in effect for all but two abortion facilities. The restriction on abortions after 20 weeks on unborn children who can feel pain was never challenged and remains in effect today. Likewise, the limitations on chemical abortions up to seven weeks gestation and prohibiting abortionists from sending women home alone to abort have been upheld and remain in effect. We remain confident that the entirety of Texas’s law will ultimately be upheld.” -Casey Mattox

A Disturbing Story About Judge Edith Jones | Gerard Bradley at NRO

    Gerard Bradley at NRO: They say that Jones said something like “Death penalties serve the condemned by forcing them to face God.” Well, of course they do — if there is indeed a God. I believe there is, and until I read this story, I thought Judge Jones had a “civil right” to believe there is, too. Most religions maintain that after death there is some sort of divine judgment. Surely Christianity maintains that it is so.
