Law has common-sense safety precautions for women.

Abortion advocates came up hard against reality Tuesday when the U.S. Supreme Court refused to overturn a set of new laws in Texas designed to protect children and their mothers from horrific abortion practices.

The Texas law could become a model for the rest of the nation.

WASHINGTON, DC (Catholic Online) - The Supreme Court has upheld a Texas law which includes important new safeguards for women seeking abortions. The law requires, among other things, doctors to have admitting privileges at hospitals within 30 miles of their abortion mills.

Abortion advocates were upset because the law has resulted in about a third of all abortion mills in Texas shutting down, at least temporarily, while doctors make arrangements to comply.

Admitting privileges mean a doctor can accompany their patient to the hospital in the event of a complication, rather than dumping them on emergency room staff following a botched procedure. Women seeking abortions have experienced episodes with internal injuries, bleeding, as well as drug overdoses, and other adverse reactions. These are merely the physical side effects that women endure. Far more suffer emotionally. Women are simply not designed to have their children ripped from their wombs.

Admitting privileges then are a common sense safety precaution to help protect the life of the mother, even after the child is killed. Even pro-abortion agencies, such as the National Abortion Federation recommends that doctors have admitting privileges within 20 miles of their mill, ten miles closer than the Texas law.

In light of this, abortion advocates are worried the Texas law could become a model for the rest of the nation, since Americans are becoming less enamored with the practice overall. More pro-life politicians are being elected across the country and more abortion mills may face tighter regulation.

Texas Governor Rick Perry said of the decision, "This is good news both for the unborn and for the women of Texas, who are now better protected from shoddy abortion providers operating in dangerous conditions." He's right. The law doesn't outlaw abortion, but rather it imposes common sense safety standards on those who provide it.

Meanwhile, in neighboring New Mexico, the fight for life suffered a setback as the city of Albuquerque rejected to ban late-term abortions. That city will remain a late-term abortion capitol and children will continue to be subjected to abortion, long after five months when they can experience pain in the womb.

Abortion advocates naturally don't care about pain, or about risk to a woman's life or suffering. For them this is about turning women into "liberated" sexual objects who are dependent on chemicals and doctors to "control" their reproduction. It's the extension of an ungodly, atheistic, and amoral leftist movement that seeks to enslave under an Orwellian banner with the word "freedom" inscribed upon it.
