The United States Supreme Court let stand the Texas Heartbeat Act, a new law that protects every human being with a detectable heartbeat, including those naturally living inside their mother’s womb. This law went into effect on September 1st, 2021, making Texas the first state to successfully ban nearly all abortions since Roe v. Wade was unjustly decided by eight men in 1973.
This new law protects prenatal children beginning when they are approximately six weeks old. At this age, most mother’s don’t yet realize they are harboring new life. This effectively bans most elective abortions.
Because Texas is focused on establishing a state that respects the human dignity of every Texan, this law makes no exceptions for killing children conceived through rape or incest since the nature of one’s conception does not determine the value of one’s life.
The Texas Heartbeat Act was allowed to stand primarily due to how its enforcement was architected. The law does not require the State to enforce the law, instead it allows private citizens to sue abortionists and anyone else involved in the abortion kill chain. This includes accomplices who transport pregnant mothers to an abortion facility and those who donate money to help pay for the killing of these innocent children.
Following Texas Governor Abbott’s signature on the bill, Texas Right to Life made the following statement:
Although this law fails to protect every child from the moment of conception, it’s a huge step in the right direction and is likely to lead to the collapse of Roe v. Wade.
