SCOTUS Rules 5-4 to Allow Pro-Life Texas Law to Remain in Force

Just before midnight last night, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a momentous decision. In a 5-4 ruling, the Court allowed a pro-life law in Texas to remain in force. This law prohibits abortions once an unborn child’s heartbeat can be detected, which typically occurs around six weeks. Practically speaking, this law effectively bans nearly all abortions in the state of Texas! 

Janet Porter, our dear friend and the architect of "heartbeat bills," released a video with these poignant words:

"We have long awaited the day when children with beating hearts are legally protected, where our heartbeat laws are actually enacted and enforced. That place is Texas, and that day is today."

Though the case—and the battle—is ongoing, this ruling is historic and represents a watershed moment in our nearly 50-year battle to protect the sanctity of human life. Like many of you, we at the Dr. James Dobson Family Institute have fought for the day when abortion would be seen for the evil it is. Friends, we are close! The science is unassailable and the truth is undeniable, but we must keep raising our voices until the ruling for life is irreversible!
