A divided Supreme Court late Wednesday denied an effort by abortion rights groups to halt a Texas law that bans women from having the procedure after six weeks of pregnancy, wading into a divisive debate hours after the prohibition had already taken effect.

The 5-4 ruling, handed down one minute before midnight, followed a daylong outcry from abortion rights groups and applause from anti-abortion advocates across the nation after the Texas prohibition took effect and several clinics said they would honor it. Similar abortion bans in other states had been quickly halted by federal courts before they took effect.

  1. The Party, formerly known as the Republicans, has been withering on its decomposing vine for several years.
    We have now heard the tolling of its death knell.

    1. The Republican party is alive and well cupcake. Supporting the rights of everyone including the unborn. Democrats gave up protecting the Innocence rights years ago.

  2. THE GOP IS DONE!!!!!!!!! GIVE UP WHILE YOU CAN!!!! DEMOCRATS 2022, 2024 AND FOREVER!!!!!!! BABYLON WILL BURN! DON’T GET CAUGHT IN THE FIRE!!!!!!

  3. The Texas branch of the Christian Taliban has given us, the Faithful, hope that our goal of Christian-style Sharia can become the Universal law of the Land someday.

  4. This “law” would allow a rapist to sue a girl who tries to abort his baby. This is great for molesters and rapists but not for children.

    1. @Sir This is McDonald’s if you even watched the damn video not all abortions are being banned it’s after 6 weeks. I don’t care either way abortion shouldn’t be something that you should be penalized for but at the same time you’re kinda scummy soo

    2. @Brian Lemmon I’m scummy for saying that that we shouldn’t ban abortion for rape victims??? If so I’m the scummiest of the scum. I watched the video but you should know most pregnancies take a longer than that to discover

    3. @C Train no its 1% but also it’s been proven that 3 out of 4 rape cases are not reported so it’s most likely more

    4. @Sir This is McDonald’s “Congratulations! Weeks four through seven are when most women discover they are pregnant.” – According to American Pregnancy Association

    1. @Mike he also doesn’t care about life outside the womb. Checking his watch 13 times and abandoning our citizens and military. I guess that’s what we get with a stolen election.
