Contributing sentiments towards policy:

44% : "The court's move means that the law -- which is one of the strictest in the nation and bans abortion before many people know they are pregnant -- will remain on the books," reported CNN.
44% : Blackman explained that, given that the Texas law does not enable state officials to enforce it, Planned Parenthood "tried to get around that" and sue a state district judge, Reeve Jackson, and make him party to their case, though "initially Planned Parent[hood] wanted to sue every judge in the state" in creating a class action lawsuit, "but they didn't get that far."
38% : "They simply see abortion," but "don't realize that there's some very specific procedural issues that limit the ability of the court to rule," he said.
35% : "Instead, this foofaraw is largely a function of the Supreme Court's short-circuiting the political debate over abortion nearly a half-century ago; as even the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg acknowledged, Roe v. Wade warped our legal and political discourse."
34% : "The 5-4 cases attract a very high percentage of media attention because they are more salient issues: abortion, guns, affirmative action, voting rights, election law," he said.
33% : The Supreme Court decided this week to keep, for now, the Texas law that prohibits abortion - except when the mother's life is in danger - when a fetus's heartbeat is detected, usually at the sixth week of pregnancy.
