We have ended an entire line of medical care for women. Imagine if we did this based on race (I know, but blatantly). But because it’s women it’s okay because, you know: only women can bear children, therefor they should. Say the men.
In other words, even if we all agree that, in a particular case, an abortion was medically necessary, a doctor can *still* be sued in Texas, and will have to pay to defend against the suit (with no recovery), even if it’s a 100% certainty that they are ultimately going to win.— Steve Vladeck (@steve_vladeck) July 26, 2022

In A Nutshell…
Again, if it was “Say the white men,” imagine the conversation.
I say this as the father of a daughter who might need that care. Who knows what the future holds?
What it doesn’t hold right now is equal protection under the law. Which the Supreme Court has declared is perfectly constitutional. Anybody else see the problem now?
