High Court Rebuffs Biden Admin, Narrows Challenges To SB8
Washington, D.C.: “The Supreme Court delivered a sound legal victory for the right to life,” said Ed Martin, president of Phyllis Schlafly Eagles. “The entire Supreme Court (except Justice Sotomayor) dismissed the Biden administration’s challenge to the Texas Heartbeat Law as ‘improvidently granted,’ essentially meaning the challenge shouldn’t have been granted in the first place. This short three-sentence ruling delivered a curt rebuke to the Biden administration’s push for supremacy of federal power over the authority of states.
“In a second decision on this same Texas law, the High Court allowed lower court challenges to continue, but with a significantly narrower scope.”
“This is a great win for the pro-life movement,” Martin continued, “and a wonderful boost on the heels of oral arguments in the Mississippi Dobbs v. Jackson Whole Women’s Health Org case that could see the foundation of Roe v. Wade overturned.
“Medical science has marched on since the 1970s and so has our American culture. No longer do the faulty arguments of Planned Parenthood and their ilk carry water in our culture or in our courts. It’s time to stand up for the dignity of all pre-born human beings. It’s time to end this moral stain on the fabric of our nation!”
