On Tuesday, the Planned Parenthood abortion business filed a lawsuit against a Texas law that has the potential to save tens of thousands of babies in the womb annually.
Per Life News:
The Houston Chronicle reports the Texas Heartbeat Act, Senate Bill 8, is being challenged by the Whole Woman’s Health abortion chain, Planned Parenthood, the American Civil Liberties Union and others in federal court.
The law, which is scheduled to go into effect Sept. 1, prohibits abortions once an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable, about six weeks of pregnancy. Unique from other state heartbeat laws, the Texas legislation includes a private enforcement mechanism that allows people to file lawsuits against abortionists who violate the law.
The provision is similar to language in the Sanctuary City for the Unborn ordinances that have been passing at the city level, and pro-life leaders believe it makes the Texas law more likely to withstand a legal challenge.
“The only thing more ridiculous than this lawsuit is the fact that we have people, right here in Texas, who are fighting to end the lives of innocent unborn children,” said Mark Lee Dickson, director with Right to Life of East Texas and founder of the Sanctuary Cities for the Unborn initiative. Dickson is one of the parties named in the lawsuit.
Recently, a Texas judge tossed another Planned Parenthood lawsuit against Sanctuary Cities for the Unborn.
