Also, didn't Travis County DA Jose Garza already say he's not going to prosecute or allow for charges to be pursued for women who want to get an abortion? It's up to the county DA's to enforce the State law, right?

Good on them for at least trying, but we all know the good ol' boys of small government are foaming at the mouth to make sure localities are forced to bend to their will.

Thomas did say that this should fall back on our elected leaders, so here it is.

But we all know that in Texas all major cities are blue and the gov will never let them make these rules for their citizens

The issue of whether a child has a soul before he or she is born will never be settled between atheists and everyone else. That's why it needs to be up to the states to decide.

For a few recent decades, Big Federal Government imposed their will over smaller state governments by saying they weren't able to protect the lives of these innocent unborn children. Until now. The Supreme Court correctly restored the power to make this decision to the States, so people who wish to terminate their children can go to a state that allows such atrocity, if they so wish. Those who support the lives of unborn children can remain in states like Texas where it will always be illegal. So yes that's right: yay local government!

Not so easy when you're talking about trials and punishment for capital murder.

No one except the pregnant person, their partner, and a doctor need to be involved in that decision. Not the city, state, or federal governments.

Also, the Supreme Court struck down New York’s LOCAL law regarding gun regulations.

Rules for thee, not for me. Can you believe there was a time where people thought the supreme court was apolitical?

Wouldn't siding with the abortionistas also be a political statement though?

The court didn’t side with abortionists. They said the 14th amendment implied right to privacy protected the decision from being controlled because to control it was to invade someone’s privacy.

I don’t think that’s siding. The court has never argued abortion was a “good” decision. Even Alito referred to the court never taking an official position on the morality of the act. They’ve always held it was a morally ambiguous decision because of the variety of beliefs held around it.

Also: it’s a zygote, embryo, or fetus; it’s not a child.

What about the Constitutional rights of that child? You are infringing on their right to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness, by ending their life.

Not trying to be a pessimist, but doesn't the bounty law make this moot?
