BREAKING: Supreme Court To Hear Critical Texas Abortion Case In Just Days

October 22

The U.S. Supreme Court is about to hear a landmark case that could decide the fate of countless unborn babies for years to come. We’ve told you about the lifesaving Texas abortion law , also called the Texas Heartbeat Act , recently signed by Texas Governor Greg Abbott that bans abortions once a heartbeat is detected, generally around the six-week mark. The ACLJ submitted written testimony as the Texas legislature considered this unique lifesaving Texas law. The heartbeat law has been on a roller-coaster ride ever since, being passed, blocked, reinstated, challenged by President Biden, and now on a fast track at the Supreme Court. As we reported , the Supreme Court just issued an order expediting consideration of the Texas heartbeat bill case. Now, the Supreme Court will hear the case on November 1st. The ACLJ will be submitting an amicus brief in support of the crucial lifesaving law by our filing deadline, which is October 27th. The radical Left – beholden to abortionists like Planned Parenthood that provide financial support for their political campaigns, including President Biden’s – decried the law from the start. Planned Parenthood said it was “devastated” when the Supreme Court refused to block the pro-life law the first time. Now, the radical Left and President Biden have joined forces with the abortion lobby to overturn this Texas law. As we told you , a federal judge issued a 113-page order striking down the heartbeat bill. It was soon temporarily reinstated by the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals and is currently being enforced. Now, the Supreme Court has allowed the law to continue in effect as it considers the case in the coming days. It is critical that we take action now. I have instructed our legal team to prepare and file an amicus brief in the next few days at the Supreme Court in this important case. This law will protect countless babies in Texas and will no doubt influence other states around the country to enact similar legislation in defense of their own most-vulnerable citizens, the precious unborn. In addition, an even bigger case is before the Supreme Court, with oral argument scheduled for December 1st, that could overturn Roe v. Wade . The ACLJ has already filed three briefs in that case. We will continue to keep you updated as these cases progress.
