Breaking: Texas Heartbeat Law Prevails Again At Supreme Court; Biden DOJ Case Dismissed

Today, the U.S. Supreme Court released an opinion on the two cases involving the Texas Heartbeat Law (S.B. 8). 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.

Here is what I said to the media today:
Jonathan Saenz, President, and Attorney for Texas Values released the following statement:
“Preborn babies today are saying three words – ‘God Bless Texas.’ The Texas Heartbeat Law has prevailed again at the Supreme Court, by remaining in effect on one challenge and by the Supreme Court completely dismissing the Biden’s Department of Justice case against Texas in ‘Biden v. Babies.’ There are now over 15,000 babies who have been saved since the Texas Heartbeat Law took effect. The Texas Heartbeat Law remains fully enforceable and shows that Texas takes the dignity and protection of the preborn seriously. We are celebrating the lives already saved, yet, we are not done yet. More information can be found can be found at

Despite the legal attacks, the Texas Heartbeat Law has already saved over 15,000 lives since it went into effect on September 1, 2021. The Law remained in effect during the litigation process and now with the Supreme Court’s ruling, will continue to remain in effect.

Texas Values was the leading faith and family organization in Texas which helped in every phase of the passage of the Texas Heartbeat law. And we were at the United States Supreme Court defending the Texas Heartbeat Law in November.
