Father, we thank You for protecting many of the unborn in Texas with this law. We pray that You would continue to protect them and move in this country, overturning Roe v. Wade for their sake.

Pro-choice feminists have fought Texas’ heartbeat law desperately since it was passed, but the state has fought back just as hard. Now, the Texas Supreme Court has stepped in, ruling in favor of the pro-life legislation in what some are calling a “big victory.”

From Christian Post. Texas’ highest court has recommended that a lawsuit against the state’s law banning abortion as early as six weeks gestation should be dismissed because state officials are not enforcing the pro-life measure.

The Texas Supreme Court ruled Friday in the case of Whole Woman’s Health et al. v. Jackson et al. that officials at state medical licensing boards cannot enforce the law, which bans nearly all abortions after an unborn baby’s heartbeat can be detected, which is usually around six weeks into a pregnancy.

Since the law allows for private citizens to enforce the ban instead, the decision by the state’s highest court effectively defeats the lawsuit brought by pro-choice groups….

The Center for Reproductive Rights, which helped to bring the litigation against the law, concludes that the lawsuit is effectively dead. Among the legal attempts to stop the Texas law, the abortion-rights group contends this lawsuit was “once the most promising….”

CRC President and CEO Nancy Northup said the ruling shows that “[w]e are in a moment of crisis not only for reproductive rights but for our justice system and the rule of law….”

“An unconstitutional ban on abortion after six weeks continues unchecked in the state of Texas. The courts have allowed Texas to nullify a constitutional right. We will continue to do everything in our power to right this wrong….”

The law is enforced through private citizens who receive financial incentives to sue abortion providers or anyone else in Texas who helps a woman get an illegal abortion….

According to data from the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, the number of abortions in the state the month the law took effect dropped by about 60% compared to the month before….

FATHER GOD thank YOU for this victory! Please speak to the anti-life people letting them know that choice is only for their person, not the person of the child in the womb! Let them know that to deprive another person of life is murder! No matter the age or location (womb) of the other person! FATHER GOD we decree an end to Roe v. Wade this year in JESUS NAME! Amen!
