Texas ‘Fetal Heartbeat’ Law Blocked by District Court Judge

Once again, legislation has been blocked by a sitting judge.

Governor Abbott and the Texas state legislature were dealt a significant blow by U.S. District Judge Robert Pittman.

Pittman has slammed the brakes on the abortion bill that has created national outrage among Democrats and liberals.

Not Happening

Pittman, appointed by Barack Obama, is getting his 15 minutes of fame in the landmark case.

He penned a 113-page ruling, deciding in favor of the case brought by Biden’s Department of Justice.

In part, the ruling stated, “A person’s right under the Constitution to choose to obtain an abortion prior to fetal viability is well established.

“Fully aware that depriving its citizens of this right by direct state action would be flagrantly unconstitutional, the State contrived an unprecedented and transparent statutory scheme to do just that.”

He further stated, “From the moment S.B. 8 went into effect, women have been unlawfully prevented from exercising control over their lives in ways that are protected by the Constitution.

“That other courts may find a way to avoid this conclusion is theirs to decide; this Court will not sanction one more day of this offensive deprivation of such an important right.”

This will now set the wheels in motion to have this case wind up where we eventually believed it would the moment it was passed… the Supreme Court.

Attorney General Merrick Garland was delighted with the win, stating, “Today’s ruling enjoining the Texas law is a victory for women in Texas and for the rule of law.

“It is the foremost responsibility of the Department of Justice to defend the Constitution.

“We will continue to protect constitutional rights against all who would seek to undermine them.”

It is truly a shame he only takes that stance for legislation that Biden does not like and outright ignores our Constitution when it comes to Biden’s own actions and our border.
