    Could the Texas abortion bill be upheld by the Supreme Court?

    I suppose it could. The question of whether they will is another story. If only people would be more responsible and not have sex and conceive before they are prepared to care for a child. American schools deserve much of the blame for the uninhibited, casual attitude people have about sex. They are teaching young people to act like animals in their sexuality and the whole country is reaping the consequences.

    At least for now more innocent lives will be saved from murder as a result of this bill.

      Actually, most schools still teach abstinence. I agree that the decision to have sex should be taken seriously. However, what about the right of a person to make their own decisions in their life regardless of your views on morality?

      People do not have the right to kill their children, no matter under what circumstances they are conceived. That's called murder no matter which way you slice it. By the way, would you provide a link or some evidence to what you said about schools?

    As for the law being upheld, I doubt it, The Supreme Court already struck down an Arizona law that put the cap at 20 weeks, so there is plenty of precedent there.

    As for the bill itself, I've read it, and I can't really see what all of the uproar is about. Basically, it boils down like this:

    It lowers the cap from 6 months to 5 months (does it really take the extra month to make up your mind?)

    It only permits abortions to take place in properly equipped surgical centers, by doctors who have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles, just in case something goes wrong. (I don't know how involved of a medical procedure abortions are, but this one kinda seems like common sense to me).

    It still allows provisions for the health and safety of the mother, even after 20 weeks.

    All in all, it's probably going to get struck down, but I honestly still can't see what all of the fuss is about.
