Hillary Clinton weighed in on the newly passed Texas abortion law on Twitter, alleging that “the Supreme Court officially overturned five decades of settled law and permitted Texas’ unconstitutional abortion ban to stand.”

“Yes: They gutted Roe v. Wade without hearing arguments, in a one-paragraph, unsigned 5-4 opinion issued in the middle of the night,” asserted the 2016 Democratic nominee for president.

That is not what the Supreme Court did by refraining from striking down the law on Wednesday night.

The approximately one-page majority decision — reached by the conservative majority, excluding Chief Justice Roberts — specifically states that “this order is not based on any conclusion about the constitutionality of Texas’s law, and in no way limits other procedurally proper challenges to the Texas law, including in Texas state courts.”
