WASHINGTON — The Texas pro-life bill is set for a showdown in the Supreme Court. The news was first reported on Friday as the Supreme Court refused to block the pro-life bill as the Biden Department of Justice had requested. Instead, the court set a date to hear arguments in November.
The arguments in November are not over the validity of the law, but rather the legality of the federal government to sue Texas over the law. Texas has maintained its argument that the US government has no right to sue over the law.
The Biden regime’s DOJ has argued that Texas has nullified Supreme Court decisions within its state borders. They argued that the Supreme Court set the expected viability date of pregnancy and established abortion regulation across the nation.
The Texas law has been the subject of much debate as the Biden regime has pursued to overturn it since it was passed. Conservatives have celebrated the law, which takes a different approach to protect life than many other states have taken.
In Texas, the law is not a criminal one, but rather a civil one. It allows those who perform an abortion to be sued for violating the act and being responsible for financial penalties for those who report their violation. Previous attempts at pro-life law focused on criminal enforcement.
Justice Sotomayor was not happy with the decision to allow the law to stand until the hearing date. She wrote, “The promise of future adjudication offers cold comfort, however, for Texas women seeking abortion care, who are entitled to relief now.”
liberals argue that failure to block the law is preventing women’s access to healthcare. An abortion procedure is not healthcare however, it is the murder of a child. The Texas law applies once a heartbeat is detected, which confirms life.
The ruling on the Texas case is expected to be a campaigning point for Democrats. They need something to campaign on given their economic failures and continued poor performance in recent polls regarding the direction of the country.
Democrats, if defeated, are expected to argue for an expansion of the Supreme Court and potential term limits for justices. They have talked since the Trump administration about potentially stacking the court with up to 4 more justices to swing the court into radical favor.
Arguments are set in the Texas case for November 1. It puts the Texas case just ahead of the Mississippi case, which is set for December 1.
