The Texas Heartbeat Bill is now law in the state, banning the aborting of babies after six weeks gestation and putting the abortion industry on notice that providing the procedure illegally will have consequences. The law took affect Wednesday after the Supreme Court and a federal appeals court on Monday failed to act on emergency requests to stay the law.
The law, HB 1500, also allows anyone except a government official to file a civil suit against abortion providers who thwart the law.
Left-wing, pro-abortion activists are reacting in horror over Texas’ effort to protect the unborn, including so-called faith leaders who believe in the life-ending practice is somehow sanctioned by God.
