Texas Abortion Ban is Now Law

'Litigation continues, but I’ll keep winning for Texas’s unborn babies... '

(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) The Texas Supreme Court has reversed a lower court decision, allowing a pre-Roe v. Wade state law prohibiting abortions to go into effect.

According to Breitbart, the state court’s order is the latest in an ongoing feud between the Texas government and pro-abortion baby killer activists to allow the practice in-state.

Despite the 1925 law not being enforced after Roe was decided in 1973, the law remained on the books. A Harris country judge temporarily blocked the abortion ban after the overturn of Roe, as abortion clinics were suing the state.

The clinics argued that the law was effectively repealed when the Court decided Roe v. Wade, but the state Supreme Court disagreed and allowed the ban to go into affect.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton celebrated the court’s decision.

“Pro-life victory! Thanks to my appeal, SCOTX has slapped down the abortion providers and the district court carrying their water,” Paxton tweeted.

“Our state’s pre-Roe statutes banning abortion in Texas are 100% good law. Litigation continues, but I’ll keep winning for Texas’s unborn babies.”

Paxton has also declared an annual holiday within the state attorney general’s office on the day of Roe‘s overturn.

“Abortion is now illegal in Texas. And today I’m closing my office—and making it an annual holiday—as a memorial to the 70 million lives lost because of abortion,” Paxton said.

Texas was also the first state in the nation to codify a “heartbeat law,” which banned abortion after a fetal heartbeat could be detected.
