The Biden administration has announced that they are suing to block stop the new Texas law would protect the lives of many, perhaps most unborn babies across the state:
POLITICO – The Biden administration on Thursday sued the state of Texas over its highly restrictive abortion law that the Supreme Court allowed to take effect last week.
“The act is clearly unconstitutional under longstanding Supreme Court precedent,” Attorney General Merrick Garland said in a news conference. “This kind of scheme to nullify the Constitution of the United States is one that all Americans, whatever their politics or party, should fear.”
The Texas law, SB8, effectively bans most abortions by prohibiting the procedure after six weeks from conception — a period that is before when many women know they are pregnant. Additionally, it sets up a novel enforcement mechanism that authorizes private citizens to file lawsuits against those who are believed to perform or aid in an abortion outside of that window.
President Joe Biden has faced intense pressure to respond to Texas’ abortion restrictions — and to moves in other conservative-led states to craft similar laws. Biden has decried the law, calling it “un-American” and saying it “blatantly violates” the landmark Roe v. Wade precedent. The complaint makes a similar argument and claims Texas lawmakers enacted the statute “in open defiance of the Constitution.”
“It takes little imagination to discern Texas’s goal — to make it too risky for an abortion clinic to operate in the State, thereby preventing women throughout Texas from exercising their constitutional rights, while simultaneously thwarting judicial review,” it states.
There is no constitutional right to murder unborn babies. It simply does not exist. There is only an evil Supreme Court precedent that has allowed this barbaric practice to happen legally for nearly 50 years.
I can only hope that when this law finally reaches the Supreme Court, and you can be sure it will, our justices acknowledge this truth and rule accordingly to finally end this abhorrent, life-destroying precedent.
As for ‘Catholic’ Biden, I suspect he’ll have a lot to answer for in the future I wouldn’t want to be him on that day.
