As of today, Texas’ “heartbeat bill” goes into affect. Typically 85% of abortions are performed after this time. The bill effectively deputizes private citizens with the enforcement of the bill by allowing any private citizen to sue any abortion provider or anyone who helps facilitate the abortion (such as a person who drives someone to get an abortion). No exceptions for rape or incest, other than the person doing the raping can’t be the one to sue. I’m surprised I’m not seeing more conservatives on here mentioning this celebrating, this seems like a pretty historic win. While there is some expectation that the Supreme Court could still weigh in, this is the first heartbeat bill to not be stopped in federal court before taking affect.
