First Heartbeat Law Takes Effect

The U.S. Supreme Court refused to block the Texas Heartbeat Act thereby allowing Texas to place into law the first heartbeat law in the nation, as noted by LifeNews.

Justices Thomas, Alito, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and Barrett constituted the majority in the 5-4 decision.

As I noted in an earlier post, the Texas heartbeat law has a new enforcement strategy that depends on private citizens filing lawsuits against abortionists.

Now that the law has been enacted, we will see how well it works in practice.
