Texas Is Permanently Shutting Abortion Clinics and the Supreme Court Can't Do Anything About It
When Texas Gov. Rick Perry signed a sweeping anti-abortion law in 2013, he did so knowing the measure faced an uncertain future. Indeed, the law is already winding its way through the legal system, and if its opponents have their way, Texas's reproductive legal code will land in the hands of the Supreme Court.
But such a decision is likely a year or years a way, and back in the Lone Star State, the final judicial score won't much matter.
The law has already had tremendous success in closing abortion clinics and restricting abortion access in Texas. And those successes appear all but certain to stickâ€”with or without the Supreme Court's approval of the law that created them.
There were more than 40 clinics that provided abortions in Texas in 2011. There are now 20 still open, and after the law's last steps of implementation are taken in September, all but six are expected to close. Most of the...

I have the opportunity to travel through College Station, TX at least once every year. For years now I have taken the time to go by the Abortion Clinic located there and have always been impressed with the faithful walking and praying at all hours. These faithful praying souls are my heros! Well, to my great surprise I drove to the clinic this year and what did I find? It was closed! The prayers of the faithful were answered! Thank you College Station faithful! Praise God!
I thank the Lord for the godly leaders this nation still has. May Governor Perry be blessed as he governs the great state of Texas! He is not ashamed to carry the banner of Jesus! May God raise up Christian leaders who are bold for their love and faith in Christ.
