Divided 5th Circuit Court of Appeals Panel Rules Against Texas Ban on - Dismemberment Abortions

Posted: Oct 21st, 2020 - 5:29 am

State has 14 days to ask full 5th Circuit to hear case

Texas Right to Life responded yesterday to the 2-1 decision:

The United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit ruled against the Texas Dismemberment Abortion Ban, upholding the district court ruling that blocked enforcement of the Pro-Life law. After a three-year wait, the decision by the three-judge panel is disappointing and demonstrates the need for judges who follow the strictest interpretation of the Constitution. However, Texas must continue the legal battle to force a federal circuit court split, pressuring the Supreme Court of the United States to evaluate the merits of the law.

As NRL News Today has explained, the law, passed in 2017, was never allowed to take effect. U.S. District Judge Lee Yeakel of Austin is as reliable a buttress as any pro-abortionist could possibly desire. In his 27 page opinion, Judge Yeakel traveled hither and yon to tell us that the ban (an amendment to Senate Bill 8 which passed overwhelmingly) is all but patently unconstitutional

In fact, the ban does no more than require that the unborn child’s heart is no longer beating when she is torn apart. Even this the abortion industry found unacceptable.
