Liberal Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor encouraged law students at Tufts University Wednesday to lobby against the Texas heartbeat law, which is saving babies from abortion every day, according to Life News.
The report notes:
An appointee of pro-abortion President Barack Obama, she specifically mentioned the Texas heartbeat law, which is now in effect. On Sept. 1, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 against a request to temporarily block the law – a surprising move that Sotomayor and the other liberal judges blasted in harsh dissents.
“There’s going to be a lot of disappointments in the law, a huge amount,” Sotomayor told the law students at a diversity event hosted by the American Bar Association, according to the Washington Post. “As you study cases and look at outcomes you disagree with, it can get frustrating. Look at me, look at my dissents.”
Her dissent in the Texas case described the pro-life law as “flagrantly unconstitutional.” She said it was “stunning” that the majority on the court “opted to bury their heads in the sand” rather than block the law.
“I can’t change Texas’s law, but you can,” Sotomayor said. “You can, and everyone else who may or may not like it can go out there and be lobbying forces in changing laws that you don’t like. But the point is, there are going to be a lot of things you don’t like.”
