On Wednesday, a corrupt Obama-appointed federal judge ordered Texas to immediately restart abortions.
In his order, U.S. District Judge Robert Pitman of the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas called Texas’ abortion legislation a “offensive deprivation.”
The “heartbeat” law prohibits abortions beyond 6 weeks in Texas and enables any citizen – including those from outside the state – the ability to sue anyone who aids and abets illegal abortions.
In his 113-page opinion, the far-left Judge slammed Texas Republicans.
“From the moment S.B. 8 went into effect, women have been unlawfully prevented from exercising control over their lives in ways that are protected by the Constitution,” Pitman wrote in his scathing ruling.
“That other courts may find a way to avoid this conclusion is theirs to decide; this Court will not sanction one more day of this offensive deprivation of such an important right,” he angrily added.
Thegatewaypundit.com reports: The lawsuit was brought by Joe Biden’s Justice Department last month.
US Attorney General Merrick Garland last month said Texas’ new abortion law is “clearly unconstitutional” and warned other states against passing similar laws.
“The act is clearly unconstitutional under longstanding Supreme Court precedent,” Garland said referring to Roe v. Wade.
A federal judge on Wednesday ordered Texas to suspend the most restrictive abortion law in the U.S., calling it an “offensive deprivation” of a constitutional right by banning most abortions in the nation’s second-most populous state since September.
The order by U.S. District Judge Robert Pitman is the first legal blow to the Texas law known as Senate Bill 8, which until now had withstood a wave of early challenges. In the weeks since the restrictions took effect, Texas abortion providers say the impact has been “exactly what we feared.”
In a 113-page opinion, Pitman took Texas to task over the law, saying Republican lawmakers had “contrived an unprecedented and transparent statutory scheme” by leaving enforcement solely in the hands of private citizens, who are entitled to collect $10,000 in damages if they bring successful lawsuits against abortion providers who violate the restrictions.
Texas officials told the court they will go to the 5th US Circuit Court of Appeals and ask for the order to be reversed.
