Rogue Federal Judge Blocks Civil Rights Under Heartbeat Law

Rogue Federal Judge Blocks Civil Rights Under Heartbeat Law

AUSTIN, Texas— Yesterday (Oct. 6), a federal judge in Texas issued an order blocking private citizens in Texas from filing legal actions through the Heartbeat Law to protect unborn babies.

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

“This heartbeat law ruling is all politics and no law. No one is surprised that an Obama-appointed judge cooked up some bogus reasons for telling our Texas state judges and clerks that they can’t do their jobs. We know this will be overturned, probably by the end of this week. Lives are at stake and we will do everything in our power to protect a baby with a beating heart.”
