Abortion Regulations Trial Continues in Federal Court

Week 8 Article #3

1. (Smith, Jordan). Abortion Regulations Trial Continues in Federal Court. October 22, 2013
Austin Chronicle 

2.  Category: Health care

3. Level: Nationwide

4. This affects individuals/families:
This concerns many females who want or need to seek out an alternative to ending the pregnancy and we need to allow them to turn to those options.

5. Why is this important?
The House Bill 2 was passed this summer and it had violated the constitutional due process and equal protection provisions and create a burden on many women who are trying to seek an abortion. The challenges would require all abortion doctors to obtain hospital admitting privileges within 30 miles of each clinic and to provide the procedure under FDA approved protocol.

6. What are your views?
I believe that the government really shouldn't intermingle religion with government views but the unfortunately we are a nation that does so anyways. This summer the House Bill 2 was passed and as of right now is going under the Supreme Court's view to test if what was passed was constitutional.
Many clinics have to be shut down to this occurring and that is not fair for women who need to terminate their pregnancy for whatever the reason may be. Women need to be given many choices when it comes to their pregnancy and they shouldn't have to be told if they are or not allowed to choose to end or keep the pregnancy.
