It’s safe to say Democrats will never get over the end of Roe v. Wade. They have been fighting tooth and nail to protect their precious “abortion rights” ever since the Supreme Court overturned the 1970s decision.
Many red states celebrated the win by passing strict, pro-life laws. Democrats have pulled out all the stops to block these laws–which exist to protect unborn children. Two super-leftist groups teamed up to shut down Gov. DeSantis’s pro-life law. And now, the state Supreme Court is getting involved.
From Fox News:
The Florida Supreme Court has agreed to hear a legal challenge to Florida’s 15-week abortion ban, which was signed into law by Gov. Ron DeSantis in April 2022…
However, the court did not grant their request for a temporary restraining order to block the state from enforcing it.
The law, called the Reducing Fetal and Infant Mortality Act or HB 5, will remain in effect as the lawsuit proceeds.
This is a big blow to the left’s plans to push their “abortion-only” agenda. Democrats within Planned Parenthood and the ACLU were hoping the court would block the law while the case is decided. That would have given abortionists a window to continue their work in the state.
But the highest court in Florida refused to lift the law, meaning it is still illegal in Florida to perform an abortion after 15 weeks. It’s unclear now how the court will ultimately rule. But given the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to grant state governments the power to decide abortion law, Democrats don’t have many legs to stand on.
There is nothing unconstitutional about this 15-week ban. Stricter bans are in place in Texas and other red states. Many states have outright banned abortion, and have won battles in court. Democrats have resorted to fighting state-by-state to force their abortion agenda onto Americans.
They won’t be satisfied unless abortion is the only choice for many low-income women. Democrats seem to think that unless you are part of the one percent, you shouldn’t have children. They attack pregnancy centers that provide alternatives to abortion for many women.
Perhaps Democrats think nobody should have children, these days? They do claim the earth is “overpopulated.” Maybe they won’t rest until abortion is the only option for everyone but the richest on the planet?
- The Florida Supreme Court upheld the state pro-life law, while a case is being decided.
- Democrats sued the state to overturn a 15-week abortion ban.
- The left has been waging many battles to force abortion rights onto red states.
