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.

WASHINGTON – On Wednesday, shortly before midnight, in a 5-4 decision, the U.S. Supreme Court allowed the Texas law, SB8, to go into effect.

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.

Texas lawmakers acted on the will of the people when they enacted legislation reflecting the scientific reality that unborn children are human beings, with beating hearts as early as five weeks,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry continually run to the courts since they are losing hearts and minds nationwide. The American people are eager to humanize our extreme, outdated abortion laws. We stand with Texas and hope that, soon, the Court will finally unshackle all stats to protect he most vulnerable among us.”

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.

Planned Parenthood Demands Restraining Order to Stop Texas Abortion Ban From Saving Babies

Planned Parenthood Demands Restraining Order to Stop Texas Abortion Ban From Saving Babies

Planned Parenthood is trying another way to stop the new Texas heartbeat law.

Late Thursday, three of its Texas affiliates asked a judge to issue a restraining order against Texas Right to Life to stop the pro-life organization from suing abortionists who violate the law, Texas Public Radio reports.

The pro-life law went into effect Wednesday, prohibiting abortions once an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable, about six weeks of pregnancy. Unique from other heartbeat laws, it includes a private enforcement mechanism that allows people to file lawsuits against abortionists who violate the law.

Planned Parenthood, a billion-dollar abortion chain that does about 40 percent of all abortions in the U.S.,

Speaker Nancy Pelosi, outraged by the new Texas heartbeat law, promised Thursday to bring up a radical pro-abortion bill for a vote when lawmakers return Sept. 20.

WATCH: Joe Biden Calls Saving Babies From Abortion “Un-American”

WATCH: Joe Biden Calls Saving Babies From Abortion “Un-American”

Joe Biden made it clear today that he does not believe human life begins at conception. But the pro-abortion president went even further in his attack on a Texas law that saves babies from abortion. He called the law “un-American.”

As LifeNews reported, Biden made it clear that he does “not agree” with the scientific fact that human life begins at conception. That puts him completely out of step with Biblical principles and the pro-life teachings of the Catholic Church that the lives of human beings begin at conception.

“I have been— continue to be a strong supporter of Roe V.

Florida and Other States May Pass Laws Like the Texas Ban to Save Babies From Abortion

Florida and Other States May Pass Laws Like the Texas Ban to Save Babies From Abortion

The Texas abortion ban has already saved countless babies from abortion and has not been blocked in court — making it the first state to successfully protect unborn children from abortion, at least for a short period of time.

Now, pro-life legislators in Florida and several other states are looking at passing a similar pro-life laws:

State Senate President Wilton Simpson issued a statement Thursday, saying it was “worthwhile to take a look at the Texas law and see if there is more we can do here in Florida.”

Speaker of the House Chris Sprowls also issued a statement showing support for tougher pro-life measures.

CONFIRMED: Texas Abortion Ban is Saving Babies. “Abortions Have All But Stopped”

CONFIRMED: Texas Abortion Ban is Saving Babies. “Abortions Have All But Stopped”

On Friday, ABC’s Good Morning America actually had the gall to lament that Planned Parenthood abortionists were murdering fewer unborn babies in the wake of Texas passing pro-life legislation to regulate the lethal procedure. At one point in the despicable coverage, a Houston abortion clinic doctor complained that the “inhumane” legislation was reducing his business.

Fill-in co-host Cecilia Vega hyped “the growing fallout from that Texas law banning most abortions” and how “Planned Parenthood asked a Texas court to temporarily block this law from taking effect.” Turning to correspondent Rachel Scott in Houston, Vega fretted: “Rachel, you’ve spoken to doctors who say they are already having to turn women away.”

Court Dismisses Pro-Abortion Lawsuit Against Man Responsible for 34 Texas Cities Banning Abortion

Court Dismisses Pro-Abortion Lawsuit Against Man Responsible for 34 Texas Cities Banning Abortion

In another victory for life this week, a Texas appeals court dismissed a pro-abortion group’s attempt to silence pro-life leader Mark Lee Dickson and Right to Life of East Texas.

The Seventh District Court of Appeals in Texas issued a unanimous ruling Thursday dismissing the Lilith Fund’s lawsuit against Dickson and his pro-life organization. It also ordered the pro-abortion group to pay the pro-lifers’ court costs and attorneys’ fees.

The Lilith Fund accused the pro-life organization and Dickson, founder of the Sanctuary City for the Unborn initiative and a director with Right to Life of East Texas, of defamation and conspiracy in 2020.

Joe Biden Said Three Times That Life Begins at Conception, Now He’s Fully Pro-Abortion

President Joe Biden said Friday that though he respects Americans who believe life begins at conception, he does not agree with them.

The president discussed Texas’ Heartbeat Act, which the Supreme Court declined to block earlier this week, Friday morning with reporters. The law bans abortion after six weeks and allows “any person” to sue doctors, abortion clinics, or anyone who “knowingly engages in conduct that aids or abets the performance or inducement of an abortion.”

“I am a strong supporter of Roe v. Wade, number one,” Biden said. “The most pernicious thing about the Texas law, it sort of creates a vigilante system … I know this sounds ridiculous, almost un-American, what we are talking about.”
