And I'm sick of fanatics running our lives . Religious or Political. At least we know there are a few judges even in Texas that have moral and ethical courage .

This judge, at least, seems to be following the law. Texas has closed so many clinics, and in so doing has put numerous women and their pregnancies at risk. Fortunately, Judge Sparks has compassion and sense. Thanks for sharing, Freya.
