Bad news for Democrats is usually good news for America. This week, things are going great for the youngest Americans among us.
A federal judge denied a Department of Justice request to block the Texas “heartbeat” abortion bill, Fox News reported. The DOJ was seeking an injunction against Lone Star State legislation that probits abortion once fetal cardiac activity can be detected.
United States District Judge Robert Pitman said in his opinion that the “case presents complex, important questions of law that merit a full opportunity for the parties to present their positions to the Court,” he wrote Thursday. “Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that the United States’ Opposed Motion for Expedited Briefing Schedule, (Dkt. 13), is DENIED.”
The law already survived a Supreme Court challenge that again refused to place an injunction on the legislation. However, there will no doubt be further challenges as the DOJ asserted that such law prohibits women from “exercising their constitutional rights” in Texas.
The Biden administration went so far as to argue that the state concocted “an unprecedented scheme that seeks to deny women and providers the ability to challenge S.B. 8 in federal court. This attempt to shield a plainly unconstitutional law from review cannot stand.”
Democrats always pounce whenever the right to kill babies is threatened, and this law is only the tip of the iceberg for what the party of death is facing. The Supreme Court has agreed to hear arguments in a Mississippi abortion ban that threatens to overturn years of Roe v. Wade case law, the Daily Wire reported.
The state enacted a ban on abortions after 15 weeks with few exceptions and could lead to the high court to examine pro-life laws that make viability a cutoff. However, the Texas law sought to outlaw abortions much earlier from the time the fetal heartbeat emerges, or roughly at around 6 weeks.
Countless innocent lives have already been sacrificed on the altar of “choice.” It’s comforting to know that some states are still fighting for the rights of the unborn, and in some ways are winning that fight — at least for now.
