Texas SB8: Business as Usual

Not surprisingly, there’s a bit of legal wrangling regarding the Texas SB8 which prohibits the abortion of an unborn child with a detectable fetal heartbeat. It was passed on 19 May 2021 and is supposed to take effect on 1 September 2021.


According to The Washington Free Beacon, Texas abortion providers are seeking to delay its implementation. The case is Whole Woman’s Health vs Jackson.


One can read the case document and various comments floating around the web themselves. My comment is perhaps a sidebar: it’s convenient that some abortion providers are so seemingly astute when it comes to standing up for abortion rights. Too bad they don’t seem to be so astute and capable when it comes to running their clinics.


Take the clinics of Whole Woman’s Health in Texas as examples, to mention nothing of those in other states. According to AUL’s Unsafe: America’s Abortion Industry Endangers Women which covers their investigation of abortion clinics in the US in the last 10 years, Whole Woman’s Health clinics in Texas have had the following general “deficiencies”, amongst others:

  • unsafe and unsanitary premises

  • lack of respect for the privacy of patients such as the failure to keep patients’ records safe

  • improperly trained staff, as well as unlicensed and unqualified staff

  • expired medications and supplies

  • improper or poorly maintained equipment.


Either way, I guess it’s business as usual.
