In another blow to pro-abortionists, the U.S. Supreme Court once again refused to immediately block the Texas law that bans most abortions. It has, however, agreed to hear arguments in the case in early November.

The Washington Times reports:

The justices said Friday they will decide whether the federal government has the right to sue over the law.

The court’s action leaves in place for the time being a law that clinics say has led to an 80% reduction in abortions in the nation’s second-largest state. The law bans abortions after cardiac activity is detected, usually around six weeks of pregnancy. That’s before some women even know they are pregnant.

Justice Sonia Sotomayor wrote that she would have blocked the law now. The law has been in effect since September, aside from a district court-ordered pause that lasted just 48 hours, and bans abortions once cardiac activity is detected, usually around six weeks and before some women know they are pregnant.

Previously, other state-enforced bans on abortion before fetal viability, around 24 weeks, have been blocked by courts due to conflicts with Supreme Court precedents Roe and Casey.

In early October, U.S. District Judge Robert Pitman ruled for the administration, putting the law on hold and allowing abortions to resume. Two days later, a three-judge panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals put the law back into effect.

Another abortion case out of Mississippi is set to be heard before the high court on December 1.

Abortion is murder.

Sadly as a traditional Catholic, I note that “Red Sonia” is Catholic and allied with such other liberal Catholics as Nancy Pelosi. Meanwhile, a Marxist pontiff says nothing.

There is absolutely no provision in the Constitution that provides for the senseless murder of human beings for the sake of convenience. Murder is not a Constitutional right, period. If it were, the leftist elite in this country would be an endangered species.

With all the contraceptives available there is no reason for abortions. If you are too stupid or lazy to use them you should get sterilized.

Human life hangs in the balance while the Deep State turns abortion into a political football. I suppose so many justices silently agree with Margaret Sanger and Planned Parenthood.
