Planned Parenthood abortion business kills hundreds of thousands of babies in the womb each year. Anything jeopardizing its ability to make money off of the ending of unborn lives makes its officials lash out with rave.
That’s exactly what happened after Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott signed the Texas Heartbeat Act, which protects babies in the womb after a heartbeat is detected. Planned Parenthood’s president and CEO Alexis McGill Johnson lashed out following the news, saying the life-saving law is “cruel and extreme.”
In a statement, McGill Johnson said, “The goal is clear: to relentlessly attack our reproductive rights until abortion is a right in name only. Passing these bills is not leadership, it is cruelty and extremism.”
According to Life News, “A 2019 Hill-HarrisX survey found that 55 percent of voters said they do not think laws banning abortions after six weeks – when an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable – are too restrictive. Gallup polls also consistently have found that a majority of Americans think all or most abortions should be illegal.”
The Texas Tribune reports:
“It’s a very unique law and it’s a very clever law,” said Josh Blackman, a constitutional law professor at South Texas College of Law Houston. “Planned Parenthood can’t go to court and sue Attorney General [Ken] Paxton like they usually would because he has no role in enforcing the statute. They have to basically sit and wait to be sued.”
The news out of Texas comes as the United States Supreme Court is poised to consider a pro-life law out of Missouri that protects babies after 15 weeks gestational age. This case has been called “the most important life-related Supreme Court case in a generation” by pro-life groups, namely Americans United for Life.
