Liberal justices espouse Second Amendment argument in Texas abortion regulation case
Washington Times

Women’s Health v. Hellerstedt, many Second Amendment supporters are having a celebration of their very own after reading the majority opinion.In this opinion, Justice Stephen Breyer used the exact argument that gun rights advocates have been using for years, more laws do not equal less crime.In Whole Women’s Health v. Hellerstedt, Justice Breyer attempted to separate the horrific crimes of abortionists like Kermit Gosnell from the argument being made by Texas abortion regulation supporters.House Bill 2, which was at issue in this case, contained several provisions pertaining to abortions, including the requirement that doctors who provide abortion services obtain admitting privileges at nearby hospitals and that abortion facilities meet specifications to become ambulatory surgery centers under existing Texas Code.Justice Breyer wrote off these requirements designed to safeguard the health and safety of Texas women as being unnecessary.“Gosnell’s behavior was terribly wrong. But there is no reason to believe that an extra layer of regulation would have affected that behavior. Determined wrongdoers, already ignoring existing statutes and safety measures, are unlikely to be convinced to adopt safe practices by a new overlay of regulations,” Justice Breyer explained.Essentially, what he is saying here is that more laws will not deter lawbreakers from committing crimes.
