What The Bible Says Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice
This week, the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, in a 2-1 decision, denied the Department of Justice's request to block Texas' heartbeat abortion law, which bans a woman from having an abortion once an unborn baby's heartbeat is detected.
Last Friday, Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed a new bill into law prohibiting the use of abortion-inducing drugs, just weeks after the Lone Star State banned most abortions after a heartbeat is detected during pregnancy.
During a Judiciary Committee hearing on Texas' heartbeat abortion ban on Wednesday, GOP senators argued that advances in medicine and ultrasound technology have resulted in science supporting the efforts of the pro-life community.
The pro-life community in Texas won another legal battle Friday when a federal appeals court ruled the state's heartbeat abortion ban could be enforced while the judges considered an emergency motion.
