Federal Abortion Mandate Loses in Texas, Biden Stopped by Court Ruling

AUSTIN, TX – August 24, 2022: Late last night, U.S. District Judge James Wesley Hendrix, in Texas, blocked enforcement of the Biden administration’s latest overreach to force an abortion mandate on Texas hospitals to essentially turn “emergency rooms into walk-in abortion clinics” per Attorney General Ken Paxton.

On June 24th this year, the U. S. Supreme Court struck down the 1973 Roe v. Wade case and ruled (in Dobbs v. Jackson) that states can decide on their own how to handle the abortion issue, which gave Texas the freedom to enforce state laws that ban abortion. Texas had “pre-Roe” laws that were still part of state law and have allowed Texas to enforce these bans on abortion since June 24th. The Biden administration wrongly interfered in a state matter.

Tomorrow, August 25th, the Human Life Protection Act will go into effect, a new Texas state law passed in 2021 that became effective when Roe v. Wade was struck down, but had a procedural timeline that has now been completed.

Jonathan Saenz, President and attorney for Texas Values, released this statement:

“Biden’s war on Texas babies continues to fail. Across the state, more babies are now able to enjoy the right promised to all Americans, the right to life. In Texas, we are serving more women and babies every day with love, support and charitable resources as no woman or baby stands alone after Roe. For more help, please visit AfterRoe.com.”

Texas Values will continue to fight for life in Texas, and for her most vulnerable citizens.
