Federal Appeals Court Considers Sending Texas Heartbeat Act Lawsuit to State Supreme Court

Today, the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals heard the ongoing federal lawsuit over the Texas Heartbeat Act, Whole Woman’s Health v. Jackson. The main question in today’s hearing was whether the case should be sent for further consideration to the Supreme Court of Texas because the remaining defendants in the case are state agencies.

The abortion industry filed a slew of requests, highlighting their frustration that the case was and not to a federal district judge who previously ruled against the law and is their only chance at winning an injunction. The Fifth Circuit has not yet ruled on this unique and narrow question. Beneath the abortion industry’s legal maneuvers is deep desperation to move quickly to stop the law. Abortionists recognize that they are running out of time with an impending decision from the U.S. Supreme Court in that could overturn Roe v. Wade.

As the Fifth Circuit untangles the unresolved questions in this case, Texas Right to Life and Pro-Life Texans celebrate that the Texas Heartbeat Act remains in effect, saving an estimated 100 preborn babies every single day.
