SUPREME COURT LETS CHALLENGE TO TEXAS ABORTION LAW PROCEED, ALLOWS LAW TO REMAIN IN EFFECT

账单, 被称为 “heartbeat” 法, has fueled the already fiery abortion debate and prompted speculation about the court’s disposition towards Roe v. 韦德.

上个月, the court allowed Texaslaw to remain in place while maintaining a narrow legal path for abortion providers.

Planned Parenthood CEO Alexis McGill Johnson derided Thursday’s decision in a press release.

Once again the Supreme Court has betrayed the people of Texas, who have been callously stripped of their constitutional right to abortion for more than four months now,” 她说.

By enabling the state’s obvious ploy to delay any resolution to this case, this Court is complicit in the widespread harm to Texans who remain unable to make meaningful decisions about their own bodies. With no end in sight, people in Texas will continue to be forced to flee the state for essential health care — if they can — or to carry pregnancies against their will. That is inhumane. Planned Parenthood will continue to fight for our patients, and for all people in Texas, who deserve the dignity of being able to control their own lives and futures.

The decision comes just before the 49th annual March for Life on Friday, which includes a march ending at the Supreme Court. 事件, which started with the Roe v. 为后 Roe v 做准备, could see the end of the landmark ruling this summer.

在接受福克斯新闻采访时, March for Life President Jeanne Mancini said that even if Roe is overturned, the movement’s work isn’t done. Overturning Roe would return the issue to states, potentially allowing Texas even more leeway in restricting abortion.
