Breaking Heartbeat Law Hearing at Supreme Court: Attorney General Ken Paxton, Texas Values Speak in Support

Austin, TX—Today, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, Texas Values staff members, the author of the Heartbeat Law Texas state Senator Bryan Hughes, and other coalition groups will host a press briefing at the U.S. Supreme Court immediately following the oral arguments regarding Texas Heartbeat law, S.B. 8.

The Supreme Court is scheduled to hear oral arguments today on two cases: a lawsuit filed by the Biden Administration’s Department of Justice (DOJ) against the State of Texas, and a case by Texas abortionists against three private citizens in Texas who want to enforce the Texas Heartbeat law. Both cases are about the Texas Heartbeat Law and specifically whether the Court will follow the law which states that the government is not involved in enforcing the law and instead it is to be enforced by private citizen through civil court lawsuits.  The Heartbeat Law took effect on Sept. 1, 2021 and the Law has already overcome multiple attacks.

Jonathan Saenz, President and Attorney for Texas Values released the following statement:

 

“The Texas Heartbeat law will prevail again at the U. S. Supreme Court, because this is a simple case.  Texas Values fully supports the Texas Heartbeat law, the state of Texas, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, the private citizens who have been targeted by abortion groups in the face of countless attacks. Over 9,000 Texan babies have been saved from abortion by the Texas Heartbeat law since September 1, and we refuse to let this bullying and abuse of power from the Biden Administration and money hungry abortion groups deter our commitment to protecting babies.”

 

A heartbeat is a universal indicator of life and a key medical indicator that a preborn baby will reach live birth. The Heartbeat Law requires abortionists to check for a baby’s heartbeat and inform the mother if the presence of a heartbeat is detected, which is currently 6 weeks gestation, although it can be detected as early as 5 weeks gestation.

Texas Values was the leading faith and family organization in Texas which helped in every phase of the passage of the Texas Heartbeat law.
