One thing you can say about progressives is they’ll never let a defeat stand in the way of their agenda. As I pointed out in my last article, the Democrat party has unofficially been coined as the “right to life party” by Texas Democratic Party Chairman Gilberto Hinojosa. They proved how in tune they were to saving the lives of women by backing Texas Senator Wendy Davis and her 11 hour filibuster against Senate Bill No. 5. (SB No. 5). Even though the bill passed the senate and Governor Rick Perry signed the bill into law; that has not stopped the pro-abortion groups from challenging the constitutionality of this new law.
According to the group Texas Right To Life, Planned Parenthood (PP) and multiple abortion advocates have joined the Center For Reproductive Rights (CRR) and The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) to challenge SB No. 5; also known as House Bill No. 2 (HB No. 2). It is not shocking that the pro-abortion groups would attempt to file a lawsuit to overturn a law they don’t agree with. The shocking part is why they are suing. One would assume that the pro-abortion groups would seek to have late term abortions legalized in the state of Texas but amazingly they didn’t bother to challenge that part of the law. According to the CRR website, they are suing because they find a problem with the physician requirements and the limitation on the medications used for an abortion. According to Nancy Northrop, President and CEO of the Center for Reproductive Rights:
Any one of these restrictions would have a devastating impact across the state of Texas… Together they would be catastrophic, making essential reproductive health care services for many Texans, especially poor and rural women, practically impossible to access. Today’s lawsuit is a united strike back against the hostile politicians who have made clear their willingness to sacrifice the constitutional rights, health, and even lives of Texas women in support of their extremist ideological agenda.
