Every day the Texas heartbeat law stays in effect is another day of unborn babies being saved from abortions.

The Dallas Morning News reports the U.S. Supreme Court still had not issued a ruling on the Texas case on Monday, meaning the pro-life law remains in effect.

Twice, the Supreme Court refused to block enforcement of the unique, life-saving law. Then, on Nov. 1, the justices heard arguments from the abortion industry and the Biden administration urging them for a third time to block the Texas law.

However, the court has not issued a ruling yet, and no one knows when it will. Every day that the law stays in effect means more unborn babies and mothers are spared from the pain and death of abortion.

The law, Senate Bill 8, prohibits abortions once an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable, about six weeks of pregnancy.

Pro-life leaders estimate the law has saved thousands of unborn babies from abortion since it went into effect nearly three months ago. In 2020, about 54,000 unborn babies were aborted in Texas, and about 85 percent happened after six weeks of pregnancy, according to state health statistics. That equates to about 100 unborn babies being saved from abortion every day under the new law.

Here’s more from the report:

While abortion rights advocates and organizations in Texas have condemned the time it’s taken the court to produce a ruling on SB 8, anti-abortion groups are celebrating every day the law remains in effect as a success.

… The longer the court lets SB 8 operate, the louder the signal that Roe is in peril.

Additionally, Texas is one of many states with laws on the books to ban abortion immediately if Roe falls. In June, Gov. Greg Abbott signed a bill, House Bill 1280, into law that would prohibit abortions in Texas if Roe is overturned…. (Excerpts from Life News)
