On Tuesday, a federal judge threw out a lawsuit from Planned Parenthood trying to challenge an ordinance passed by the voters of Lubbock, Texas to make the west Texas city a “Sanctuary for the Unborn.” 

Life News reports:

U.S. District Judge James Wesley Hendrix dismissed the lawsuit, ruling that Planned Parenthood lacks jurisdiction to challenge the Sanctuary for the Unborn ordinance.

The ruling means Lubbock will remain abortion-free. Planned Parenthood, the only abortion facility in the city, stopped aborting unborn babies on Tuesday when the ordinance went into effect.

Lubbock is the largest city in the U.S. – and the first with an abortion facility – to pass an ordinance to protect unborn babies from abortion. Residents voted overwhelmingly in favor of the ordinance, which bans abortions within city limits and allows private citizens to sue abortionists for violating the ban.

In his ruling late Tuesday, the judge said he does not have the ability to stop private citizens from suing abortionists under the ordinance, according to the Avalanche-Journal.

“Because the ability to remedy a plaintiff’s injury through a favorable decision is a prerequisite to a plaintiff’s standing to sue—an ability absent here—the Court dismisses the case for lack of jurisdiction,” Hendrix wrote.

This is another legal victory for life as the U.S. Supreme Court considers a Mississippi law that could be the case to finally topple Roe v. Wade, which made abortion-on-demand legal across the country.

Whether it’s abortion, sexual freaks, firearms, or police every city, county, and state now has a good go-by to begin to decouple the people of American from the insane Democrat agenda, promoted by the Bidens, Pelosis, and Schumers of the federal government. The Democrat control of the congress is a very temporary thing, as will be proved in the 2022 election, and a lot of sanity will return to American politics. Now if Joe Biden would do everyone a favor and just go off somewhere and die!
