5-3 decision, with Kennedy's vote being the difference in an otherwise partisan divide. This was the ridiculous hospital admitting requirements and constantly shifting building code requirements that effectively made abortion impossible.

Wow...shocker as no one expected Kennedy to vote against it. It was predicted to be a 4-4 vote by most of the "experts".

Are those judges allowed to be reasonable, or is that an impeachable offence?

lifetime appointments so they're set unless they do something monumentally stupid. A SCOTUS justice has only ever been impeached once and the Senate acquitted him of all charges. Samuel Chase in 1805. He served on the court until his death in 1811.

The stupidity is really going through the roof with this topic, though that's not surprising....... given the fact that the Texas lawmakers hadn't left a roof in place with their own misogynistic stupidity in the first place.
