The United States Supreme Court has decided not to block recently passed legislation in Texas that places limits on abortions after 20 weeks and imposes tougher safety standards on abortion clinics.

Here’s more of Justice Antonin Scalia’s opinion via LifeNews:
“The underlying legal question — whether the new Texas statute is constitutional — is a difficult question. It is a question, I believe, that at least four members of this court will wish to consider irrespective of the 5th Circuit’s ultimate decision,” Justice Antonin Scalia wrote with Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito concurring. “I would maintain the status quo while the lower courts consider this difficult, sensitive, and controversial legal matter.”
Sen. Ted Cruz and other conservatives praised the decision.
