There are many hailing Texas as the innovator in advancing the pro life fight.
They are innovative only in the sense they found a loophole, created by leftist justices decades ago, justifying the prohibition of abortions weeks earlier than any other state.
It’s not meant to challenge prior court precedent, but to conform to it in a sarcastic way. Ie, they didn’t do anything that particularly brave.
Abortions will still take place, and the pro life money will still grift people out of money without accomplishing anything long lasting. Evidence of that is the very fact that the scheme set forth in Texas SB 8 was only introduced in 2021. They have had nearly 50 years to come up with something
Parts of the law will most likely be struck down by federal courts. The Supreme Court will only take it if there is a majority in place that disagrees with the law. The bench knows that if they strike the law down, democrats will impeach and/or pack the court. Expect 0 bravery from the bench. Kavanaugh and Gorsuch are disappointments. Robert’s may as well come out of the closet at this point.
All so Abbott can score some brownie points for his presidential run (roll??).
