This Concerns Me and I Am Pro-Life

1/2/24 Newsmax:

The U.S. government cannot enforce federal guidance in Texas requiring emergency room doctors to perform abortions if necessary to stabilize emergency room patients, a federal appeals court ruled on Tuesday, siding with the state in a lawsuit accusing President Joe Biden's administration of overstepping its authority.

The ruling by a unanimous panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals comes amid a wave of lawsuits focusing on when abortions can be provided in states whose abortion bans have exceptions for medical emergencies. 

If by stabilize, they mean prevent her from dying, that is a problem.  When the rare but troubling situation develops where you have to choose which of two lives takes precdence, thev historical tradition has been to save the mother's life; a baby who is a threat to the life of the mother creates a self-defense scenario. 

The article suggests that this may be a dispute about what "stabilization" includes.
