The left sees the right to murder unborn babies as sacrosanct. Thankfully, the U.S. Supreme Court doesn’t see it that way.
A request to fast-track a challenge to a Texas law that limits abortions after six weeks’ gestation was denied by the high court Thursday, Breitbart reported. Predictably, the decision was 6-3, with the liberal justices dissenting.
“This case is a disaster for the rule of law and a grave disservice to women in Texas, who have a right to control their own bodies,” Justice Sonia Sotomayor wrote in her opinion. She further denigrated the law, which prohibits abortion once fetal cardiac activity is detected.
“It has been over four months since Texas Senate Bill 8 took effect,” Sotomayor wrote. “The law immediately devastated access to abortion care in Texas through a complicated private bounty-hunter scheme that violates nearly 50 years of this court’s precedents.”
Outside the court, Planned Parenthood also lamented the decision, no doubt over concerns such a law’s endurance would cut into its business. “Once again the Supreme Court has betrayed the people of Texas, who have been callously stripped of their constitutional right to abortion for more than four months now,” the abortion giant’s CEO, Alexis McGill Johnson, charged in a news release.
“By enabling the state’s obvious ploy to delay any resolution to this case, this Court is complicit in the widespread harm to Texans who remain unable to make meaningful decisions about their own bodies,” she added. Of course, there was no mention of the babies’ bodies saved from harm through this law.
With this latest decision, the case must continue to make its way through the slower, more careful channels of a Supreme Court review. Other cases like Mississippi’s Dobbs v. Jackson, which limits abortions after 15 weeks, could pose a further challenge to the right to extinguish the unborn.
The entire leftist agenda hinges on the right for women to kill their own babies in the womb. However, the protection of the unborn is a fight many conservatives are willing to take on, even if it means a battle at the high court.
