Texas Is Permanently Shutting Abortion Clinics and the Supreme Court Can't Do Anything About It

Regardless of what the judicial system does with Texas's antiabortion law, its on-the-ground effects are unlikely to be reversed.

AUSTIN, TX - JUNE 25: State Sen. Wendy Davis (D-Ft. Worth) (3L) holds up two fingers against the anti-abortion bill SB5, which was up for a vote on the last day of the legislative special session June 25, 2013 in Austin, Texas. A combination of Sen. Davis' 13-hour filibuster and protests by reproductive rights advocates helped to ultimately defeat the controversial abortion legislation at midnight. (Photo by Erich Schlegel/Getty Images)
