Total chaos in Texas
Right now there is chaos going on in Texas. This is primarily due to the fact that random people are suddenly getting it in their head to start the process of litigation because of the Texas handmaid law. Only maybe not for the reasons Republicans were hoping for.
Doctor Alan Braid of San Antonio Texas announced he’d performed an abortion. He announced this in a Washington Post op-ed. Braid has been candid in his motivation. He wants to force a review of SB 8. After all, he admits to violating the handmaid law. So, how could it NOT be reviewed? Of course the outcome of Braid’s announcement was predictable.
Faster then one could say breaking the law, two Attorneys, one disbarred and living on house-arrest, have sued Braid. Sigh. As I have said before, you just can’t make this stuff up.
“Texas Right to life” is the group that backed this wretched law, and they are not very happy right now. The reason they are not happy is because “neither of these lawsuits are valid attempts to save innocent human lives.”
This is a quote from John Seago, legislative Director for the organization. Indeed, one of the lawyers who is suing isn’t even asking for money. He just wants the law reviewed. Oh dear. What’s a Stepford Republican to do?
It will be interesting to see what comes of this litigation. In the meantime, these actions have left fuming Texas Republicans stewing in their own juices, and it couldn’t happen to a more miserable bunch of morons.
