Three months ago Texas Governor Greg Abbot signed a fetal heartbeat bill into law, making it illegal to have an abortion once the heartbeat can be detected, which can happen as early as 6 weeks.
The law, which went into effect September 1, further bars them from engaging in their murderous practices if they haven’t performed an ultrasound first to detect that heartbeat.
Any abortion provider not following these practices can be sued and subject to civil action by any interested party (The girl, her boyfriend, her husband, a friend, etc.), to be awarded no less than $10,000 and all attorney fees.
Planned Parenthood, the apex predator of the baby-killing world, vowed to fight it tooth and nail, and was joined by President Biden, who also pledges to uphold Roe v. Wade.
Martha Stahl, CEO of Planned Parenthood in Montana, was quick to assure abortion-minded residents that while she loathed this new ruling, it only affected Texas and that Planned Parenthood abortuaries in the state would remain open to see patients:
“(Texas having a ban)…doesn’t mean that automatically every state is going to have a six-week ban or 15-week ban. It basically opens the door to state legislators to put regulations and obstacles in front of people having abortions as they wish, as long as they’re sort of within the confines of what the supreme court has said is constitutional.”
Planned Parenthood filed a lawsuit in Yellowstone District Court against the Gianfiote Government several weeks ago seeking to stop four new laws restricting access to abortion in the state. Coming into effect October 1, 2021, the suit names Attorney General Austin Knudsen as a defendant.
These laws are nowhere near strict as the Texas ones, but they ban abortions after 20 weeks (the overwhelming majority of abortions happen before this, so this does little), make abortionists have to ask the women if they want to see an ultrasound before the procedure, make it harder to get birth control pills and limit the ability of insurance to cover the procedures.
Given that Republicans have a supermajority in the House and Senate, we would urge our legislators to not only follow Texas’ lead but to leapfrog them altogether, abolishing abortion completely and purposefully inviting the full force and wrath of Martha Stahl and Planned Parenthood upon the state to do battle with.
