The Texas Heartbeat Act is once again in full effect following action from the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. Late Friday night, appellate judges blocked the lower court’s previous ruling in the Biden administration’s anti-Life lawsuit.
The administrative stay is not permanent, but tonight’s victory optimistically signals how the court may rule on the merits of the case.
Texas Right to Life Director of Media and Communication Kimberlyn Schwartz responded:
“This is an answered prayer. The Texas Heartbeat Act saves approximately 100 lives from abortion per day, and we’re grateful that this tremendous impact will continue. We expect the Biden administration to appeal to the Supreme Court of the U.S., and we are confident Texas will continue to defeat these attacks on our life-saving efforts.”
Texas Right to Life continues to work with other states to replicate our success across the country.
