Mississippi Attorney General: SCOTUS Should Overturn Roe So States Can Protect Babies From Abortion

Mississippi Attorney General: SCOTUS Should Overturn Roe So States Can Protect Babies From Abortion

The Supreme Court will hear arguments Dec. 1 in what some are saying is the biggest abortion-related case of the past four decades.

Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization could result in the overturning of Roe v. Wade and the returning of power to the states to set their own abortion laws, as they did prior to the high court’s 1973 ruling in Roe.

“I feel very confident that we’re going to win,” Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch says.

Fitch, a Republican, has filed briefs with the Supreme Court asking the justices to deliver “strong clarity” on the issue of abortion in their ruling.

BREAKING: U.S. Supreme Court refuses to block Texas abortion law

BREAKING: U.S. Supreme Court refuses to block Texas abortion law

On Wednesday evening, nearly 24 hours after the Texas Heartbeat Act (SB 8) went into effect in Texas, the U.S. Supreme Court handed down a surprising 5-4 decision rejecting all emergency requests to block it.

According to a tweet from SCOTUSblog, the five Justices voting to allow the law to stand were Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett. Justices Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan were joined by Chief Justice John Roberts in dissent.

Justice Sotomayor’s dissent in the application for injunctive relief, Whole Woman’s Health v. Jackson, joined by Justices Kagan and Breyer, notes, “Today, the Court belatedly explains that it declined to grant relief because of procedural complexities of the State’s own invention.”

Newsweek reporter slammed for warning pro-life laws may result in survival of more ‘Down syndrome fetuses’

Newsweek reporter slammed for warning pro-life laws may result in survival of more ‘Down syndrome fetuses’

This week, the Supreme Court allowed the Texas Heartbeat Act to stand after abortion advocates filed an emergency appeal to try to block it. Under the Texas Heartbeat Act, abortion is restricted after a heartbeat can be detected (at about six weeks gestation), and private citizens can sue abortionists and others aiding and abetting an abortion, except for the child’s mother. The ruling has caused panic among abortion advocates, including one Newsweek reporter who lamented the possibility of more children with Down syndrome being born.

Richard Hanania, in addition to writing for Newsweek, is the president of the Center for the Study of Partisanship and Ideology (CSPI) and a research fellow at the Saltzman Institute of War and Peace Studies at Columbia University.

Texas abortionist: New abortion law ‘threatens my ability to care for my family’

Texas abortionist: New abortion law ‘threatens my ability to care for my family’

Texas Senate Bill 8 went into effect on September 1, 2021, restricting abortion once a preborn child’s heartbeat is detectable — typically at about six weeks gestation (four weeks past fertilization). The heartbeat actually begins 16-22 days after fertilization. Now one Texas abortionist is claiming the law will prevent her from caring for her family.

“This law threatens my livelihood,” Dr. Ghazaleh Moaydei, a board member with Physicians for Reproductive Health told NPR. “It threatens my ability to care for my family. It threatens my career simply for doing what I was trained to do right here in Texas. You know, I went to medical school here.

Pelosi, Biden Push National Abortion on Demand Act

Pelosi, Biden Push National Abortion on Demand Act

“The deceptively named ‘Women’s Health Protection Act’ should really be called the ‘National Abortion on Demand Act.’ Existing laws at risk if the legislation passes include limits on late-term abortions, waiting periods, informed consent laws, and limits on discriminatory abortions, and many others.

“Washington Democrats are out of touch with the majority of Americans who want to follow the science and humanize our extreme and outdated abortion laws – not make them even more extreme.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi: Texas Heartbeat Act is ‘immoral’ and a ‘catastrophe’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi: Texas Heartbeat Act is ‘immoral’ and a ‘catastrophe’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), a self-labeled Catholic, tweeted on Wednesday that the Texas Heartbeat Act meant to save human beings from abortion once their heartbeats are detectable is a “catastrophe to women.” While the human heart begins to beat just 16-22 days after fertilization, the law does not dictate the gestational age at which abortion is restricted but states that if there is a detectable heartbeat, the abortion can not legally take place.

“SCOTUS’s failure to block #SB8 has delivered catastrophe to women in Texas,” tweeted Pelosi. “This radical law is an all out effort to erase the rights and protections of Roe v Wade.”

BREAKING: Texas becomes first state ever to enforce ‘heartbeat law’

As of midnight on September 1, 2021, the U.S. Supreme Court had not yet responded to an emergency appeal from abortion proponents to stop the Texas Heartbeat Act from going into effect, which protects preborn children from the first detectable heartbeat (around five to six weeks gestation). According to the Associated Press, at least 12 other states had previously passed legislation to protect children at the same point in gestation, none had been allowed to go into effect until now, making Texas the first state to successfully enforce such a law.

News outlets reported that abortion facilities in the state had stopped scheduling abortions past six weeks days in advance of the September 1 effective date.

The tragic decision-making behind Roe v. Wade and its disastrous health consequences

The tragic decision-making behind Roe v. Wade and its disastrous health consequences

The Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade decision and its equally controversial companion case, Doe v. Bolton, created a public health vacuum, the impact of which is still felt today.

Attorney Clarke D. Forsythe’s 2013 book, “Abuse of Discretion: The Inside Story of Roe v. Wade,” details how the Justices’ unfounded assumptions about abortion not only led to the legal dehumanization of the preborn but also helped create today’s abusive, unaccountable abortion industry. 

Medical Assumptions 

According to Forsythe, the Roe and Doe decisions relied heavily on the Justices’ mistaken idea that abortion was somehow safer than childbirth when, even today, the lack of reporting surrounding abortion complications raises questions about the health hazards surrounding it.

These 7 abortion-related cases are set to be heard by the Supreme Court this fall

These 7 abortion-related cases are set to be heard by the Supreme Court this fall

Although Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the U.S. Supreme Court case on Mississippi’s 15-week abortion restriction, has made waves as the landmark case that could overturn Roe v. Wade, it isn’t the only abortion-related case that may be heard this year.

The Supreme Court is slated to hear several abortion-related cases, including several before the year ends.

In Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, Mississippi’s only licensed abortion business is challenging the constitutionality of a law that restricts abortion after 15 weeks gestation. The law notes the increased physical risks to the mother as the gestational age of the preborn child increases, and notes that D&E abortion is typically used in the second trimester — a cruel and inhumane dismemberment procedure that involves tearing off the limbs of the preborn child, crushing the skull, and piecing the body parts back together to ensure everything was removed.

Abortion proponents ask US Supreme Court to halt Texas abortion law from taking effect

Abortion proponents ask US Supreme Court to halt Texas abortion law from taking effect

A new Texas law that would restrict abortions once a preborn child’s heartbeat is detected is poised to take effect Wednesday, but the abortion industry is making last-minute efforts by to stall the legislation, including an emergency application asking the U.S. Supreme Court to take up the case.

The Texas Heartbeat Act was signed by Governor Greg Abbott in May and is set to take effect on September 1. It will restrict all elective abortions after a detectable heartbeat, which occurs as early as six weeks. The law is unique in that it allows private citizens to file lawsuits against someone implicit in committing an abortion, including the doctor who performs it or the person who pays for it.

President Trump Asks Court to Reinstate His YouTube Account

President Trump Asks Court to Reinstate His YouTube Account

President Donald Trump is fighting back in court against Big Tech censorship.

Earlier this year, after Twitter and Facebook censored him, YouTube banned Trump from uploading any new videos to the popular video-sharing service. The Google-owned platform cited concerns over “ongoing potential for violence,” even though President Trump has repeatedly called for peace during and after riots at the U.S. Capitol.

YouTube officials indicated that the service would remove content President Trump uploaded, claiming it somehow promotes violence but providing no proof that is so. Although Trump’s channel will stay online for users to view old videos, the president can’t live stream or add new videos to the account.

Since 2007 the stay-at-home mother of two has received life-sustaining treatment for her bleeding disease from Dr. Michelle O’Fallon, co-owner of Alaska Internal Medicine and Pediatrics in Anchorage.

South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem Appeals Ruling Overturning Pro-Life Law Saving Babies From Abortion

South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem Appeals Ruling Overturning Pro-Life Law Saving Babies From Abortion

South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem has filed a motion today appealing a lower federal court’s ruling striking down a state law that saves babies from abortion.

The state legislature had previously passed a law to help get abortion-minded women to pregnancy centers that could provide them with better alternatives, but a lower court judge struck down the measure.

With the Supreme Court poised to take up a case from Mississippi that would allow states greater latitude to pass pro-life laws, Governor Noem thinks the time is right to appeal the decision because, under a favorable ruling, it would have a greater likelihood of standing.

Every Supreme Court Justice President Trump Appointed Just Voted for the Texas Abortion Ban

All five of the U.S. Supreme Court justices who refused to block the Texas heartbeat law Wednesday were appointed by Republican presidents, including the three chosen by President Donald Trump.

Though about a dozen states have passed similar heartbeat laws, Texas is the first to be allowed to enforce its law. The others have been blocked by the courts. If upheld, the Texas law has the potential to save tens of thousands of babies from abortion every year.

Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett made up the majority in the 5-4 decision. Gorsuch, Kavanaugh and Barrett were appointed by Trump, who promised to pick judges who would change the “wrongly decided” Roe v.

Governor Ron DeSantis Supports Banning Abortion: “I’m Pro-Life, I Welcome Pro-Life Legislation”

Governor Ron DeSantis Supports Banning Abortion: “I’m Pro-Life, I Welcome Pro-Life Legislation”

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has already signed into law pro-life bills to save unborn children from abortion and he would welcome a Texas-style bill that would ban abortions, like the one the Supreme Court refused to block.

“I’m pro-life. I welcome pro-life legislation,” DeSantis said when asked about the Texas pro-life law. Then added, “I’m going to have to look more significantly at it.”

“It’s a little bit different than how a lot of these debates have gone, so we’ll have to look. I’m going to look more significantly at it,” DeSantis said.

The Florida governor also noted how powerful the science is about unborn children and how ultrasounds allow people to see the humanity of unborn children.
