Hal Sparks Radio Prgm — Fight Back Texas Take 2 (11/02/13)

Right now, if you are able, Lilith Fund and Stigma Relief need your help assisting those patients traveling great distance at great expense to access reproductive care. Whole Women’s Health closed 1/3 of its clinics without notice, calling patients the night before to cancel appointments. Give if you can and spread the word.

Hal and I picked up our conversation from Friday’s Stephanie Miller Show segment on Fight Back Texas. ICYMI: Thursday night’s Fifth Circuit Court decision on HB2 which effectively shut down 1/3 of the Texas abortion providers effective immediately. Greg Abbott, the Texas State Attorney General — who gets more and more awful the more you know about him, won his appeal of the stay granted earlier in the week against the TRAP provision requiring doctors to have admitting privileges at area hospitals. Appeals courts in other parts of the country have struck down admitting laws, which means the next step for legal action is the Supreme Court — where Anthony Kennedy will likely be the deciding vote.

According to TeaFund, there are 254 counties in Texas. As of today, only 6 of them have an abortion provider. The laws will continue to be challenged, but in the meantime this is real people’s lives that are being devastated.
