Washington, D.C. – Today the abortion lobby led by the nation’s largest abortion business, Planned Parenthood asked the U.S. Supreme Court to block Texas’ Heartbeat Act, legislation signed into law by Governor Greg Abbott (R) that protects unborn children from abortion as early as a fetal heartbeat can be detected. Unless acted upon by the Court, the law is set to go into effect Wednesday, September 1.
The national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) responded in a statement:
Texas lawmakers acted on the will of the people when they enacted legislation reflecting the scientific reality that unborn children are human beings, with beating hearts as early as five weeks,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry continually run to the courts since they are losing hearts and minds nationwide. The American people are eager to humanize our extreme, outdated abortion laws. We stand with Texas and hope that, soon, the Court will finally unshackle all stats to protect he most vulnerable among us.”
SBA List is a network of 900,000 pro-life Americans nationwide, dedicated to ending abortion by electing national leaders and advocating for laws that save lives, with a special calling to promote pro-life women leaders.
