Texas Passes Anti-Abortion Law, Leftists Call those Against Killing Babies ‘Taliban’

September 2, 2021

In May, Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed into law Senate bill 8, the Texas Heartbeat Act, which banned abortion after 6 weeks.

The bill defines pregnancy as beginning with “fertilization,” and an “unborn child” as “a human fetus or embryo in any stage of gestation from fertilization until birth.”

The bill goes onto to state that those who perform or induce an abortion, with the exception of medical emergencies, may be liable to pay a $10,000 fine for each abortion performed.

The Supreme Court, in a 5-4 vote, denied a bid to overturn the law.

Chief Justice John Roberts joined the other three liberal justices in dissenting, expressing that “The Court’s order is emphatic in making clear that it cannot be understood as sustaining the constitutionality of the law at issue.”

Justice Sonia Sotomayor called her conservative colleagues’ decision “stunning.” “Presented with an application to enjoin a flagrantly unconstitutional law engineered to prohibit women from exercising their constitutional rights and evade judicial scrutiny, a majority of Justices have opted to bury their heads in the sand,” she wrote.

Despite the unconstitutionality of Roe v. Wade, whereby the Court found a fictional constitutional right to abortion in 1973, the decision has since been referred to as an integral right to kill babies within our Constitution. The Constitution, however, does not refer to any such right.

Texas’ Heartbeat Act has recently caused protests and false equivalencies. Trending on Twitter is #TexasTaliban, where leftists are claiming that conservatives against abortion are like the Taliban.

But even liberals have spotted the irony, as Leftists try to draw parallels between those that oppose mandates and are pro-life.

 

Is being “pro-choice” really about what one can do with one’s own body?
