“The Heartbeat Act that now becomes law in Texas represents a huge step forward in protecting women and children from the horrors of abortion. This is a victory for life. I’m proud to have been a decades-long member of the pro-life movement, which has steadily and ceaselessly worked toward this historic day. Credit also goes to Gov. Abbott, Texas lawmakers and – perhaps most of all – President Trump, who nominated the conservative justices who made this achievement possible.
“Our focus now must turn to beating back opposition by the radical Left. Having lost in the legislative and judicial arenas, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer seek other ways to undermine the rule of law. They may try to expand and pack the U.S. Supreme Court, as well as game the U.S. Senate by granting statehood to Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico. Just this morning, Biden warned he will use the administrative power of the White House to undermine Texas law.
“Now is not the time to celebrate and rest easy; this fight is just beginning.”
