HUGE WIN: Supreme Court Rules In Favor Of Texas Abortion Ban!

The Supreme Court Of The United States

A new Texas State law is set to go into effect on Sept. 1. This new law protects unborn babies with detectable heartbeats, meaning, private citizens can sue abortion providers, performing an abortion on a six to eight weeks old fetus. This occurred as the high court is preparing to hear a challenge to the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision later this year.

This law was signed by Texas’ Republican Governor Greg Abbott in May, It gives private citizens authority to sue those who carry out abortions after six weeks, If one is found guilty, they will be required to pay at least $10,000 to the plaintiff.

As per NBC News, abortion facilities in Texas are already turning away pregnant women for September appointments as the new law is set to take effect this month.

β€œSince mid-August, all 11 of the Planned Parenthood health centers in Texas that provide abortion services have stopped scheduling visits after Sept. 1 for abortions past six weeks of pregnancy. The vast majority of people who obtain an abortion in Texas are at least six weeks pregnant.” Reported NBC News

This comes in as the United States Supreme Court is preparing to hear a challenge to the well-known Roe v. Wade ruling from 1973 later this year.

Next year, the Supreme Court is also set to rule over Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban. Many pro-life advocates are expecting this to overturn as we now have a 6-3 conservative majority in the Supreme Court after Justice Amy Coney Barrett replaced longtime Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in October last year.
