Texas can keep saving babies in the womb from abortions for the time being since the U.S. Supreme Court won’t make a Monday ruling on the state’s pro-life law banning all abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected.
Life News reports:
Abortion activists had hoped that Monday would be the day when the U.S. Supreme Court would issue a ruling about the Texas heartbeat law. At 10 a.m., however, the court published only one opinion for the day, an unrelated case about water rights, according to SCOTUS Blog. That means the life-saving Texas law will remain in effect.
Twice, the Supreme Court refused to block enforcement of the unique, life-saving law, which went into effect on Sept. 1. Then, on Nov. 1, the justices heard arguments from the abortion industry and the Biden administration urging them for a third time to block the Texas law.
However, the court has not issued a ruling yet, and no one knows when the justices will.
CNN anchor Jim Sciutto predicted that the Supreme Court will not publish any more rulings until after the Thanksgiving holiday.
“In effect, the Texas abortion law remains in effect – and with no scheduled opinion days before Thanksgiving – at least until next week,” Sciutto wrote on Twitter.
The announcement means hundreds more babies will be saved in the state of Texas until the Supreme Court rules.
