BREAKING NOW: Supreme Court Allows TX Abortion Law to Remain in Effect as Lawsuits Proceed

posted by Hannity Staff - 12.10.21

From Fox News:

The Supreme Court Friday morning ruled that a lawsuit by abortion providers against Texas over its abortion law may proceed, despite arguments by Texas that the way the law was written made it so that parties could not sue against the law until it was enforced. 

“The Court concludes that the petitioners may pursue a pre-enforcement challenge against certain of the named defendants but not others,” the court, led by Justice Neil Gorsuch, said. 

The court also let the law remain in effect pending the legal challenges. The ruling is procedural and will not be the final word on the law’s constitutionality. 

“The petitioners then filed a request for injunctive relief with the Court, seeking emergency resolution of their application ahead of [the law’s] approaching effective date,” the court said. “In the abbreviated time available for review, the Court concluded that the petitioners’ filings failed to identify a basis in existing law that could justify disturbing the Fifth Circuit’s decision to deny injunctive relief.”

ANOTHER EXCUSE: AOC Blames Twitter for Her OWN TWEET on Alabama Abortion Law

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.16.19

Embattled Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez bizarrely blamed Twitter’s character limitations for her controversial tweet regarding Alabama’s new anti-abortion law; saying the regulations were behind her post that “spread misinformation.”

“The New York Democrat used the social media platform to criticize the law, which was signed by the governor on Wednesday and outlaws nearly all abortions in the state. The same law also makes performing an abortion a felony, punishable by up to 99 years or life in prison unless the mother’s health is at risk, with no exceptions for women impregnated by rape or incest,” reports Fox News.

“Alabama lawmakers are making all abortions a felony punishable w jail time, including women victimized by rape+incest,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote in a tweet. “Of course, no added punishments for rapists. It’s going to [Governor Kay Ivey’s] desk. She will decide the future of women’s rights in Alabama.”

The tweet immediately came under fire from users on social media; pointing out the law specifically states that women who undergo the procedure will not be subject to criminal or civil liability.

“Section 5. No woman upon whom an abortion is performed or attempted to be performed shall be criminally or civilly liable. Furthermore, no physician confirming the serious health risk to the child’s mother shall be criminally or civilly liable for those actions,” states the Alabama bill.

“It’s a felony punishable by jail, [including] cases of women pregnant by rape or incest. Twitter is 280 [characters] – read the context clues in grammar of the tweet,” she tweeted.

“But good to know you’re here to promote criminalizing medical providers aiding victims of rape and incest! good job.”

BREAKING: Federal Judge Blocks Missouri’s New Abortion Law Banning Procedure After 8 Weeks

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.27.19

A federal judge blocked key elements of a Missouri law banning abortions after eight weeks of pregnancy Tuesday afternoon; likely sending the legislation to higher courts and potentially the Supreme Court of the United States.

“A federal judge on Tuesday temporarily blocked a Missouri ban on abortions at or after eight weeks of pregnancy just hours before the law was slated to take effect,” reports Fox News. “The law was expected to be implemented on Wednesday, but U.S. District Judge Howard Sachs put a pause on the ban, citing pending court proceedings.”

“Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union of Missouri claimed the ban was unconstitutional and filed a lawsuit in federal court. The groups argued that the ban goes against the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court Roe v. Wade ruling that legalized abortions across the nation. Federal law currently allows states to ban abortions after fetuses can survive outside the womb, which can be from 24 to 28 weeks,” adds Fox.

Missouri is not alone in their effort to limit abortions; with Mississippi, Ohio, Arkansas, and Kentucky passing similar legislation.

At the same time, states like New York, Virginia, Massachusetts, and Vermont have enacted laws to expand abortion rights.
