Republic of Texas leads the way again

TEXAS (LifeSiteNews) – UPDATE, September 1, 2021: Texas became the first state in the nation Wednesday to effectively ban abortions on babies with beating hearts, as the United States Supreme Court declined to act on the abortion lobby’s last-minute petition to block the Texas Heartbeat Act from taking effect. 

While it remains to be seen what the Court will do over the long term, for now the law has already begun to save lives. NBC News reported Tuesday evening that “all 11 of the Planned Parenthood health centers in Texas” have “stopped scheduling visits after Sept. 1 for abortions past six weeks of pregnancy,” and that Whole Woman’s Health claims that its “four clinics in Texas will also comply with the law and prohibit abortion at seven weeks or less depending on the ultrasound results and if cardiac activity is detected.”

The development was met with joy across the pro-life community.

“It’s September 1st. Know what that means?? Babies in Texas with a detectable heartbeat can’t be killed by abortion!!!” wrote Abby Johnson, leader of And Then There Were None, a nonprofit dedicated to helping people leave the abortion industry. “We are hearing that abortion facilities are cancelling appointments as we speak. We believe that at least 150 babies will be saved every single day from this legislation!! As a prolife Texan, I couldn’t be more excited!”

“A special thanks to Texas Values who championed this bill from the start,” Johnson added. “It has been a joy to work with them on this piece of legislation!”

  1. God be thanked. A return to the moral norm of every major religion on Earth.

  2. Meanwhile MSNBC guest calls Christians “American Taliban” for doing this “Weirdly similar to Islamic terrorists” as “journalist” nods in agreement.

    Funny how “my body my choice” only applies to murdering children and not vaccine mandates. Politicians shouldn’t have any say over your body, unless CNN says it’s okay...

  3. For a wide range of reasons, Mississippi's law is far more likely to be the one that survives in the long term. The Texas law gets high marks for its ingenuity but it creates far too many opportunities for abuse of process. I expect it to be struck down at some point. Beyond which I have this nagging image in my mind of California passing a clone law targeting anyone owning a semi-automatic firearm or any gun with an ammo capacity exceeding three rounds.
