Well, bless their hearts, The Great Stet of Texas —America’s Lab for Bad Policy— is distinguishing themselves again:
Texas on Thursday asked a federal court to block the Biden administration’s requirement that physicians and hospitals provide abortions in medical emergencies.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, in a lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas, argued that federal law does not confer a right to an abortion.
The lawsuit comes three days after Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra warned hospitals and physicians that they are required to provide abortions in medical emergencies where it is necessary treatment to protect the life of a pregnant woman. Becerra said hospitals and physicians who refuse to comply could have their Medicare provider agreements terminated and face financial penalties.
Mexico remains more free than Texas, ladies, so make a run for the border. And that is gonna make Eiron, the Goddess of Irony, laugh.
