Pro-Life Victory as the Supreme Court Upholds Texas Law to Save Unborn Babies in a 8-1 Ruling

Life News reports of a victory for the Texas abortion ban on December 10, 2021, as the Supreme Court has allowed the pro-life law to continue saving babies from abortion and it dismissed Joe Biden’s lawsuit against it.

The high court ruled that the Texas abortion businesses challenging the law can continue with their lawsuit, but the good news is the Texas abortion ban will continue protecting babies from abortion whose hearts have begun beating.

The Supreme Court voted 8-1, with Justice Sonia Sotomayor dissenting, to dismiss the Biden lawsuit against the ban. The Biden administration claimed it had the right to enforce the so-called “right” to abortion, but the Supreme Court disagreed.

The high court also watered down the lawsuit the Texas abortion companies filed, saying they may sue state licensing officials, but not the state judges and clerks who are charged with handling lawsuits spurred by the law. That could severely limit their ability to stop the private enforcement mechanism behind the ban, which has saved thousands of babies from abortions.

In its previous ruling, the Supreme Court said the pro-abortion groups did not provide sufficient reasons to justify blocking the law.

Today’s ruling means thousands more unborn children will be saved from aboritons, as many women decide to keep their baby instead of ending their child’s life. Meanwhile, pregnancy centers that provide actual help and support for pregnant women are also experiencing higher numbers of calls and visit and are saving more babies from abortion.

Leading pro-life groups praised the Supreme Court for dismissing the Biden lawsuit and letting the Texas abortion ban continue while the lower court case plays out.

Jeanne Mancini, President of the March for Life Education and Defense Fund: “Today the Court ruled on a procedural issue without addressing the merits of the case challenging the Texas Heartbeat Act. Many lives have already been and will continue to be saved by this law which protects unborn children with detectable beating hearts. The Texas law came about because for decades Roe has blocked states from being able to regulate abortion, a right the Constitution gives to the people through their elected representatives. We hope in the upcoming Dobbs case the Court returns this right to the people.”

For workers who want to quit the abortion industry, And Then There Were None is ready to help them find other work and healing; for women in need of emergency help when facing an unplanned pregnancy, our ministry Loveline is also ready to help – women deserve better than abortion and we can help with immediate tangible needs instead of paying for them to end their pregnancy.”

In 2020, about 54,000 unborn babies were aborted in Texas, and about 85 percent happened after six weeks of pregnancy, according to state health statistics.

Meanwhile, pro-life advocates are reaching out to pregnant women across Texas with compassion and understanding, offering resources and emotional support to help them and their babies. Earlier this year, state lawmakers increased support for pregnant and parenting mothers and babiesensuring that they have resources to choose life for their babies.

Texas Right to Life encouraged women seeking pregnancy help to visit its website for a list of resources. Find it here.

About a dozen states have passed heartbeat laws to protect unborn babies from abortion, but Texas is the first to be allowed to enforce its law.
