Judge temporarily blocks Texas abortion law that allows children to be torn apart from the mother’s womb

From UPI: A federal judge on Tuesday temporarily blocked a Texas law banning a second-trimester abortion procedure set to go into affect in September.

Judge Lee Yeakel (appointed by George W. Bush) of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas granted a temporary restraining order delaying enforcement of the law until Sept. 14. His order was in response to a lawsuit brought against the state of Texas by Planned Parenthood, the Center for Reproductive Rights and other women’s health groups.

The law, Senate Bill 8, in part banned the use of second-trimester dilation and evacuation procedures — a widely used method of abortion in which the fetus is removed from the uterus in pieces — unless the fetus is deceased.

In his order, Yeakel described the procedure, sometimes referred to as D&E, as “the most commonly used and safest” second trimester abortion.

Without the use of D&E, that leaves a “woman and her physician with abortion procedures that are more complex, risky, expensive, difficult for many women to arrange, and often involve multi-day visits to physicians, and overnight hospital stays,” Yeakel wrote.

Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas CEO Ken Lambrecht welcomed the ruling, saying it protects patients.

“This ruling means that patients and doctors can together make decisions based on medical science rather than political goals,” Lambrecht said in a statement. “While the Texas Legislature continues to create barriers for women seeking healthcare, including safe, legal abortion, our doors will remain open to Texans seeking healthcare.”

Attorney General Ken Paxton said SB 8 doesn’t ban all second-trimester abortions, just D&E while the fetus is still alive.

“Dismemberment abortions are gruesome and inhumane, which makes it troubling that a district court would block Texas’ lawful authority to protect the life of unborn children from such a barbaric practice,” said Marc Rylander, director of communications for Paxton. “The Texas attorney general will continue to defend our state’s legal right to protect the basic human rights and dignity of the unborn.”

The ad is the product of the Center for Reproductive Rights, and the 40th anniversary is of the 1973 Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade that made abortion — the killing of innocent unborn human persons — lawful.

Ryan Bomberger, a Black pro-life leader, responded to the ad saying: “The Center for Reproductive Rights, like Planned Parenthood, certainly understands its main demographic. Happy 40th Anniversary Baby ironically uses a man (who is normally treated [by feminists] as persona non grata) to pitch abortion. The fact that they use a black man just screams irony . . . with the black abortion rate as high as it is and black fathers as absent as they are, it’s just sick to see Mehcad Brooks shill for the number one killer in the black community, and the killer of 55 million plus since ’73.”

Roe v Wade has been nothing less than genocidal for Blacks.

As Stephen Frank notes, whereas Blacks comprise 13% of the U.S. population, they account for 40% of aborted babies.  But when the Left talks about the large number of Blacks in jail or prison, they call it racist.

In the 40 years since Roe v. Wade, more than 54.5 million American babies were murdered through abortion. That’s more than the population of the following countries (a select list):

  • South Africa, pop. 51.77 million
  • South Korea, pop. 50 million
  • Columbia, pop. 46.89 million
  • Spain, pop. 46.815 million
  • Argentina, pop. 40.117 million
  • Canada, pop. 35 million
  • Iraq, pop. 33.33 million
  • Venezuela, pop. 28.9 million
  • Afghanistan, pop. 25.5 million
  • Australia, pop. 22.881 million
  • Netherlands, pop. 16.775 million
  • Belgium, pop. 11.139 million
  • Greece, pop. 10.815 million

California is the largest state (by population, not territory) in America, with an estimated population in 2012 of 38.041 million. Since Roe v Wade, we’ve killed 16.46 million more human lives than the population of California.

John Jalsevac of LifeSiteNews calls the ad “the creepiest abortion ad ever.” I think that’s an understatement.

This is an evil ad, celebrating the killing of innocents.

Instead of a suit and tie, Mehcad Brooks, the actor in the ad, really should be in a red cape, sprouting horns.

Tears for the 54.5 million little human persons who were slaughtered….
